In the wake of the recent economic turmoil, as unemployment rates remain higher than average, more and more people have found themselves in financial distress. Bankruptcy can offer much-needed protection and relief from lenders and creditors, and enable debtors to obtain a fresh start on their financial lives. While the very prospect of filing for bankruptcy can be daunting, an experienced Birmingham bankruptcy attorney at Parkman White, LLP can help guide you through the process and discuss all available alternatives.

SHOULD I FILE BANKRUPTCY?

Why would you file for bankruptcy? The reasons could be anything from overwhelming medical bills, to credit card bills you can’t afford, to a recent divorce that has reduced your available income and increased your monthly bills.  Whatever the reason, the Birmingham bankruptcy lawyers at Parkman White, LLP can help.  Our Birmingham legal team may determine the timing is not right for you to file bankruptcy and we may be able to formulate a plan to avoid bankruptcy all together.

WHAT ARE MY BANKRUPTCY OPTIONS?

The basic kinds of bankruptcy are known as Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13. Chapter 7 is known as “liquidation” bankruptcy, under which individuals who qualify can have their outstanding debts discharged after the proceeds of their eligible property is distributed to their creditors. Chapter 11 is known as “reorganization” bankruptcy, and is exclusively for businesses facing insolvency. Finally, Chapter 13 bankruptcy offers a court-supervised payment plan for individuals and businesses for up to a maximum of five years.
