Bankruptcy Attorneys

Don’t allow financial hardships to set you back in life. As a debt relief agency, H. Lehman Franklin, P.C., can help you navigate the dense U.S. Bankruptcy Code and file with confidence. This may be a useful solution if you’re struggling with:

  • Credit card debt, medical bills, and loans you cannot pay
  • The threat of foreclosure or repossession of assets
  • A lien or judgment that has been filed against you
  • Potential garnishment of wages

Our bankruptcy attorneys and lawyers will help you understand the numerous chapters and how they may pertain to your situation.

What are the different bankruptcy chapters?

  • Chapter 13: For individuals with a steady income who want to pay their debts gradually in manageable installments.
  • Chapter 7: For debtors who cannot pay their existing debts. Some assets may be liquidated, but often liquidation does not occur.
  • Chapter 11: For businesses that would like to reorganize and/or consumer debtors with many assets. There are special provisions for individuals or corporations that qualify as small business debtors, which can make the Chapter 11 process quick and easier.
  • Chapter 12: For family farmers and fishermen who need to repay their debts incrementally over time.
