No one wants to file a bankruptcy but if the stress of garnishments, foreclosure, and lawsuits are keeping you up at night, call us for a free consultation to determine if a bankruptcy can help you start over.
We offer bankruptcy services in Wisconsin statewide. You will work directly with an attorney instead of a staff member. We take the time to explain the process to you.
We offer sliding fees for our bankruptcy services starting at $500.00 plus filing fee. Initial retainer of $100.00 is all you need to pay to start the process. Fees are based upon your income, debts, assets and the type of bankruptcy that you file. Attorney fees are a flat fee so your cost will not change no matter how many hours it takes to get you the best possible outcome.
The chapter 7 process is subject to income, expense and asset limits, which are commonly difficult to navigate.

A chapter 13 bankruptcy will allow you to keep your home or car should you fall behind in your payments. A chapter 13 may also allow you to make your car loan more affordable by possibly reducing your interest rate or principal. You will need to make monthly payments through the bankruptcy trustee for 36 to 60 months depending on your income and needs but at the end you will be current on your payments. Credit cards and medical bills and the like do not need to be paid in full during the payment plan and often receive very little.
The process of completing the chapter 13 bankruptcy paperwork is very similar for a filer. The documents to be assembled and the information to be completed are the same as those for completing a chapter 7 bankruptcy (Information packet attachment, household goods and financial document checklist)

No need to file bankruptcy in order to stop a garnishment or lawsuit. Filing a debt amortization plan that pays a creditor in full over three months may be all you need to avoid filing a bankruptcy and prevent a garnishment or lawsuit. This option allows you to add only the creditors you are having trouble with unlike in bankruptcy where you must list all creditors. There is no requirement to disclose income, expenses or assets you simply need to agree to pay the creditor in full over a 3 year period.
The first step is to call to schedule a consultation. You will be asked to bring your most recent paystub, all bills that you wish to include in the payment plan and your payroll departments address.
