Stop lawsuits

When you file bankruptcy with an experienced Van Nuys 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 Van Nuys 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.

Most of its residents live north of Victory Blvd. Some people living here in Van Nuys CA may need to file bankruptcy. They will want to file at the San Fernando Valley bankruptcy court.

      Van Nuys CA history and landmarks

      The city of Van Nuys CA was founded in 1911, and named after Isaac Newton Van Nuys. Isaac sold his land to speculators in 1909 who knew water was coming to the area from Owens Valley. Two years later, the city of Los Angeles finished building the L.A. Aqueduct. In 1915 Los Angeles annexed Van Nuys CA.

      Firstly, Busch Gardens operated an amusement park in Van Nuys CA from 1964 to 1979. It was really a marketing ploy for the brewery that opened there in 1954 off Roscoe. In time, it developed into a major theme park with rides and attractions, conveniently featuring Anheuser-Busch promotions. It now is just a brewery. (It will, however, be reopening for tours on weekends through the summer of 2018). Theme park employees who lost their jobs may have searched for a bankruptcy lawyer. You’ll want one that knows the means test.

      Secondly, Woodley Park is also a popular attraction in Van Nuys CA. It features a dog park, and has cricket matches, archery, and car shows.
