Bankruptcy

If you are considering filing bankruptcy, you’re not alone. In 2008, 17,856 people in Colorado filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy and in 2009, 23,653 families filed. These numbers are increasing by the thousands due to hard economic times. Major unanticipated life changes have been huge contributors that are leading to bankruptcy:

  • Job losses or the inability to find work
  • Unaffordable medical bills and costs
  • Divorce
  • Small business failure
  • Foreclosure
  • Layoffs and pay cuts
  • Garnishments
  • And many other life changing events.

It has become more difficult to save money when the cost of groceries, gas and other living expenses are rising much quicker than wages, leaving many depleated of descretionary income. Many of us lack savings and find ourselves living day to day, where the slightest change in our economic situation can cause a person to become quickly overwhelmed by debt. These are the reasons the protections and safeguards of bankruptcy were creaeted.. Chapter 7 bankruptcy gives the debtor an oppertunity for a fresh start, discharge old debt and protect familys from further financial hardship.

How about some relief? Garnishments stop at the door. At the Law Office of Will Cook, we take on the burden of your debt. Calls from creditors causing anxiety and beating you down?

How long does bankruptcy take to complete?
