Shelby Township Bankruptcy Attorney

Professional Legal Representation from Our Shelby Township Bankruptcy Attorney

While none of us likes to admit we cannot pay our debts, these problems often arise due to situations beyond our control. At the office of Karen E. Evangelista, P.C., our Shelby Township bankruptcy attorney knows that it only takes a few setbacks to put most of us deep into a financial hole.

For over 30 years, we have been counseling residents throughout Michigan on how filing for bankruptcy could benefit them. It can help to prevent legal actions, such as foreclosure or repossession of property, while putting a stop to harassing collection calls.

How Bankruptcy Can Provide You with a Fresh Start

Falling behind in your debts tends to have a snowball effect. The more payments you miss, the more interest and penalty charges accrue, making it impossible to ever get caught up. If the debt is secured, either by your home, car, or furniture, you could face legal action that allows the bank or loan company to seize your property.

Through the United States Courts, bankruptcy offers a way to prevent these actions, while helping you rebuild your credit with a clean slate. Depending on your situation, we can advise you on filing for the following:

  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: If you are on a limited or reduced income, this allows you to liquidate your assets, while discharging many of your debts.  
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: If you have some income but have fallen behind on items such as your mortgage or car loans, this can help eliminate some of your other debts while negotiating payments into one amount you can afford.  
  • Chapter 11 Bankruptcy: If you own a business, this can help you keep the doors open while negotiating payments with creditors.
