Negotiator of Debt Relief Options
We research the best means for handling your debt, which is not always Bankruptcy. When Bankruptcy is not your best option, our experienced negotiators step in on your behalf to persuade creditors to lower your debt and accept more reasonable monthly payments.
Extensive Experience With Debt Analysis
At the Law Offices of Fernando J. Bernheim, APC, we truly listen to your needs and thoroughly analyze your case to determine if bankruptcy offers the most effective way to ease your financial burden. We review your debts, income and expenses, and explain the ultimate impact Bankruptcy would have on your family, business, home and future credit. We answer all your questions about the bankruptcy process and the outcomes you should expect. Our compassionate approach to dealing with bankruptcy leaves no surprises.
Reprieve Through Automatic Stay
Creditors’ aggressive collection methods unfairly compound the stress of escalating debt. You can put an end to the constant harassing phone calls and letters meant to intimidate you into paying debts you cannot afford. As soon as you file for Bankruptcy, creditors must immediately stop all collection efforts — including those distressing letters and phone calls. We then deal with your creditors so you can regain your peace of mind.
Your Bankruptcy Options In California
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
- If you and your spouse own few assets and earn relatively low wages, Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is available to provide relief from your debts through the liquidation of your assets. Because many household and personal items are exempt from Bankruptcy liquidation, you can make a fresh start with limited disruption to your life. Qualifying businesses may also file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.
Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
- If you own a business, Chapter 11 Bankruptcy permits your business to continue operating while you pay creditors under a reorganization plan. The Chapter 11 option helps you escape debt without losing the business you struggled so hard to build.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
- Chapter 13 Bankruptcy enables you to stop your lenders from foreclosing on your home. If you and your spouse have substantial incomes, but a sudden illness, job loss or another unexpected circumstance has interfered with your ability to pay your bills, Chapter 13 Bankruptcy permits you to pay debts over time in smaller amounts.
