Stop lawsuits

When you file bankruptcy with an experienced Burbank bankruptcy attorney, you can no longer be sued for old debts. Lawsuits stop immediately.

Stop wage garnishment

Stop Foreclosure

Late on house payments? If you file bankruptcy, you can stop the foreclosure sale, save your home, and force the lender to accept the repayment over years.

Stop creditor harassment

Collection calls can ruin a perfectly good day. They go out of their way to make you feel miserable. If you file bankruptcy, the creditor calls stop, and you get peace. Finally.

Stop car repossession

You fell late on car payments. Now, they’re threatening to repo your car.  While you don’t get a free car in bankruptcy, filing bankruptcy stops the repo so you can catch up quickly.

Start rebuilding your credit, and your life.

There is credit after bankruptcy. Sure, a bankruptcy is bad on your Experian. But, when you file bankruptcy, you get a chance to start new. A chance to show that you can repay on time. This helps your score go up so you can rebuild after bankruptcy discharge.

    Different Types of Bankruptcies

    There are two primary types of consumer bankruptcies. First, there’s chapter 7 bankruptcy. Also, there’s chapter 13. They have different pros and cons, and you’re going to want to talk to an experienced Burbank bankruptcy attorney before deciding which is right for you.

    Chapters of Consumer Bankruptcy

    Often known as liquidation bankruptcy, a Chapter 7 is the type of bankruptcy where a bankruptcy trustee can take your assets to repay debts. Because you don’t repay your debts, it is faster. However, they give much greater scrutiny to the money you repaid grandma last month, and all those Zelle transfers you made over the past few years. Even though you may not have intended anything bad, fraudulent transfers are problems. Typically, Chapter 7 bankruptcy does not discharge tax debt, fraud, domestic support obligations, and student loan debt.

    Chapter 13 is debt consolidation where you are protected from lawsuits. This happens while you make affordable payments to repay your debts. Also, the credit cards can’t keep charging interest. There’s a set ending point. Consequently, you can get off the hamster wheel and just be finished. Finally, this option is helpful for making repayments on late mortgage debts, catching up on income tax debt to the IRS or FTB, and has extended automatic stay protections to codebtors, such as a nonfiling spouse.

    So there are key differences between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. You may think you want the cheap fast one. A couple warnings. First, the Chapter 7 bankruptcy has greater scrutiny by the United States Trustee and bankruptcy trustee. Second, you can lose things in Chapter 7, which is why exemptions and California homestead exemption are key.

    Third, you don’t always get to choose. Chapter 7 bankruptcy eligibility is a factor. This involves the bankruptcy means test, which compares your current monthly income against the median income for your household size. Let a professional bankruptcy attorney be your guide in a no-pressure consultation.

      Burbank CA and Bankruptcy Attorney Choices

      On the southeast side of the San Fernando Valley, Burbank CA has about 100,000 residents. It’s really two main areas: firstly, the flatland section, and then, the downtown-foothill area. David Burbank, a dentist, bought about 9,000 acres of the area in 1867. About twenty years later, he sold rights for the railroad to go through town, and then sold his share to speculators. These people named the new town after the dentist. These days, there are a few bankruptcy lawyers to choose from, and residents will want someone skilled to navigate them through a possible Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

      About 60% of Burbank CA residents rent, the other 40% own. Median household values are about $684,000, more than three times the national average. With equity concerns, maybe Chapter 13 bankruptcy would be an option.

      Entertainment, Full of Hope

      Burbank CA is the home to many giants in the entertainment industry. The Walt Disney Studios are here, as is Warner Brothers, Nickelodeon, and others. NBC was headquartered here at Olive and Alameda. Johnny Carson and the Tonight Show was taped at NBC for decades. But when GE bought Universal, it started a merger that had many of the Burbank CA people moving over to Universal City and leaving a big hole in Burbank lore. When a big company leaves town, many of the people dependent on it for jobs and sales might be thinking about how to find the best bankruptcy attorneys.

      Bob Hope had a 60-year relationship with NBC while it was in Burbank CA, hosting many specials for the network. When he died in 2003, the Hollywood-Burbank Airport renamed itself Bob Hope Airport, honoring the local man who spread so much goodwill to the world. The airport went back to its original name in 2017. Thanks for the memories.

      If your employer kicks you to the curb, moves operations to another city after a merger, or you just find yourself in over your head, call on a San Fernando Valley bankruptcy lawyer. It should be less painful than a trip to the dentist.
