Avallone Law Associates Is Designated As a “Debt Relief Agency” by the United States Congress

Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 are federal bankruptcy laws enacted by Congress to give single and married individuals (including owners of sole proprietorships) in financial difficulty a fresh start or relief from creditor harassment. Chapter 7 allows individuals to discharge (and not pay) most debts, including credit card debt, judgments, unsecured loans and much more. Filing under Chapter 7 normally allows you to keep your assets and then start over. Chapter 13 allows individuals to work out reasonable repayment terms for their debts.

New Bankruptcy Laws

As of October 17, 2005, the requirements to be a debtor under Chapter 7 changed when the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act became effective. There are limitations that have been placed on Chapter 7 bankruptcy and who can qualify as well as additional requirements. We can help you determine if Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a viable option or if Chapter 13 is better suited for your specific situation. Talk to one of our debt relief lawyers immediately.

Our Pennsylvania Bankruptcy Practice

  • Chapter 7: This type of bankruptcy is commonly referred to as “liquidation” bankruptcy because it can discharge debt such as credit card bills, medical bills and more.
  • Chapter 13: A debtor can reorganize his or her debt and create an affordable three- to five-year repayment plan under a Chapter 13 filing.
  • Credit card defense/debt negotiation: Bankruptcy alternatives such as an attorney negotiating with creditors or seeking to consolidate credit card debt are also helpful options.
