Your Attorney may even be able to get your garnishments back for you.

As an honest debtor, you may be able to wipe away almost all debt through a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or you may be able to enter a plan via Chapter 13 to repay debts over several years time based on your ability to pay. Chapter 7Bankruptcy is what most people think about when they think about Bankruptcy. Chapter 7 eliminates all of your debts and you are not required to pay your creditors back one cent. Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, at least with our experience, is short (about 3- 4 months from filing the petition to discharge) but you have to Qualify for Chapter 7. See if you Qualify Now. Chapter 13 helps those with high incomes or many assets that are not exempt. Chapter 13 also helps to save homes from foreclosure, paying large non-dischargeable tax bills, preventing repossession and more. Chapter 11 is usually for businesses, but filing a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in Tampa is also beneficial for individuals who would be Chapter 13 candidates with too high of debts or Chapter 13 candidates that would benefit from not paying a trustee (there is usually no trustee in chapter 11).
