How Bankruptcy Can Help You

If you’re facing out-of-control debt, you may be thinking about filing bankruptcy. Whether you’re facing credit card bills you can’t pay back or foreclosure on your home, bankruptcy protection can provide relief from creditor harassment while you get a fresh start. At Rainwater, Holt & Sexton, we know state and federal bankruptcy laws, and we’re here to help you find the debt relief solution that’s right for you.

When You Should File Bankruptcy

Filing bankruptcy may be able to provide the debt relief you need if you’re facing:

  • Back taxes or judgments from the IRS
  • Home foreclosure
  • Legal action from creditors or bill collectors
  • Repossession of your car or other property
  • Wage garnishment

Depending on the type of bankruptcy you may be able to discharge some of your unsecured debts or initiate a court-ordered payment plan to pay back your debts faster than you could without filing bankruptcy.

Debts Not Discharged by Bankruptcy

Before you file bankruptcy, it’s important to know the types of debts that can’t be discharged by Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

  • Alimony and Child Support
  • Student Loans
  • Criminal fines or penalties
  • Civil judgments against you resulting from DUI motor vehicle accidents
