What Can Bankruptcy Do for Me?
Bankruptcy may allow you to:
Eliminate the legal obligation to pay most or all of your debts. This is called a “discharge” of debts. It is designed to give you a fresh financial start.
Stop a wage garnishment, debt collection harassment, and similar creditor actions to collect a debt.
Stop a utility disconnection or force a utility company to re-connect you.
Stop foreclosure on your house and allow you an opportunity to catch up on missed payments. Bankruptcy may also help with mortgage modification ( make this clickable to a new page entitled “Mortgage Modification Mediation).
Prevent repossession of a car or other property, or even force the creditor to return a car after it has been repossessed.
