Filing Bankruptcy If You Part of a Lawsuit

One of the common misconceptions that people have when they come into my office is that if there has been a lawsuit filed, or a judgement entered against them, that we cannot use bankruptcy to deal with that debt. The plain answer is that we certainly can deal with that debt. Filing a bankruptcy, either a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13, stops all collection efforts against you including lawsuits or the collection of judgements. Please give us a call today at 317-759-1483. We offer a free consultation. We would be happy to talk to you about how we can use bankruptcy to help you.
