Granada Hills bankruptcy lawyer to protect you from creditors

Stop lawsuits

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

Stop wage garnishment

If you’ve already been sued for a credit card debt, the judgment can turn into a wage garnishment. They’re allowed to take 25% of your net pay for your debt. File bankruptcy and protect your paycheck.

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 Granada Hills 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.

      Granada Hills CA features and attractions

      Granada Hills was founded in 1916 when they built the Valley’s first oil drill. This was on the northern end of Zelzah. Once upon a time, Rinaldi took a big dip at Zelzah, but then they flattened it out so you could speed on it if the 118 was backed up.

      Himalayan Cedars line a street in Granada Hills CA named for an oak.

      Granada Hills CA 91344 has pine trees that line Chatsworth Street near Zelzah. But did you know that there is a reason the street is called White Oak? It turns out the stretch of pavement between San Fernando Mission and San Jose St has 101 cedar trees (not oaks) which are native to the Himalayas.

      Granada Hills CA is also home to the high school attended by John Elway before he went off to Stanford, which has a mascot that’s a tree. The tree does not appear to be an oak or a cedar, but a pine. Ironically, pine trees line the street near Chatsworth and Zelzah near downtown Granada Hills CA 91344.

      Finally, O’Melveny Park is the second largest park in Los Angeles. If you were to be up Balboa taking an alternate route to the jammed 405, you can visit this park.
