If you are struggling to decide whether bankruptcy is a good option for your situation, it is important to get the right information. There are many bankruptcy myths, that stop people from filing bankruptcy. It is important to understand how Chapter 7 bankruptcy can eliminate credit card debt, medical bills and stop lawsuits. It is an important debt elimination tool that can help you rebuild your financial future. Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy can stop any pending lawsuits, wage garnishments and future creditor contact.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy can help homeowners who are facing a pending foreclosure. It provides homeowners with the opportunity to repay their mortgage arrears over a 3 to 5 year term. It also offers homeowners the opportunity to remove a second mortgage from their home.

Our experienced Riverside and Orange County bankruptcy lawyers will explain how Chapter 13 bankruptcy works and how the monthly payment is calculated.

Jonathan T. - Temecula, CA

We had an very positive experience. Filing bankruptcy was a hard decision to make. Lots of variables. Lots of things to consider. Norma and her team made sure we were educated, confident, and prepared to move forward. They kept all three rules of business, they were on time, they had good communication, and felt confident in their ability at every step. I could not have asked for a better experience overall. I never went 24 business hours without a response. When I did get response, I felt my situation was understood and thought through. Well worth the investment.
