Bankruptcy

Do You Qualify For Bankruptcy?

Consider bankruptcy when you can't meet your financial obligations. There are many situations in which you may qualify for bankruptcy, including:

  • You've been out of work for an extended period and have no unemployment income or savings
  • You owe delinquent taxes
  • You are a homeowner nearing foreclosure
  • Your debt has led to wage garnishment
  • You face pending lawsuits for delinquent bills

At Brende & Meadors LLP, we help individuals in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, determine which kind of bankruptcy is right for their situation.

The most common types of bankruptcy for individuals are Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidates all your nonexempt assets to pay off creditors. It is the best option when you have a lot of unsecured debt, like medical bills or credit card payments.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy reorganizes your debt using a repayment plan. You should choose this option if you have income, but want to avoid foreclosure on your home or need time to catch up on outstanding debts.
