The Bankruptcy Process

We make the process simple. Andrew S. Mansfield meets with you to discuss whether bankruptcy is right for you, decide on the type of bankruptcy that best addresses your situation, and review the timing and fees.
Chapter 7

Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows individuals, couples, and even businesses to discharge most if not all unsecured debt and takes approximately 90 to 120 days to complete.

Chapter 13

Your income may be sufficient for you to make low interest or no interest payments to creditors over time.  The payment under a Chapter 13 plan is based on your ability to pay and not the amount of your debt.  The best part is that you don't have to struggle to pay high interest and the balance of many of your debts is eliminated at the end of three or five years.
