Personal Bankruptcy or Foreclosure

Fort Lauderdale Personal Bankruptcy & Foreclosure Lawyer

There are various forms of bankruptcy filings. One area in which I, attorney Peggy Cruz-Townsend, Esq., handle cases is referred to as personal bankruptcy directly involving an individual instead of a business.

I am dedicated to helping my clients fully understand bankruptcy and what filing for bankruptcy may mean to their financial situation and future.

The two types of personal bankruptcy that I handle are Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. Below are some brief descriptions of these areas.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

In Chapter 7 bankruptcy a debtor receives a total discharge (a “fresh start”) of most debts. You are able to start over once most of your debt is erased. Some assets may be sold and used to pay off your creditors.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a debt repayment plan to pay outstanding debt to your creditors. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy requires the reorganization of the debtor’s financial obligations in order to satisfy the requirements of the debts. People who file for Chapter 13 typically have a steady income. Some debts are dischargeable under this chapter.

In addition to filing cases of Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy, I can answer questions and provide legal help and guidance in related matters such as:

  • Putting a stop to home foreclosure
  • Stopping creditor harassment
  • Dealing with credit card debt

You do not have to face your financial problems alone. Contact me, attorney Peggy Cruz-Townsend, Esq., today to further discuss your personal bankruptcy case.
