Answering Your Questions

 

In addition to providing thorough legal guidance throughout the bankruptcy process, Idaho Bankruptcy Law can help you answer your debt relief questions such as:

1

What is Bankruptcy?

In a nutshell, bankruptcy is the state in which a person or organization cannot repay the debts owed to others. 

2

Is Bankruptcy morally wrong?

No shame should be felt in considering bankruptcy. Bankruptcy allows a party to rise out of the mire of debt for the rest of your life.

3

Must I have an Attorney?

Bankruptcies require a great deal of careful attention to detail, most people trust an attorney to make sure those details aren’t missed.

4

How does bankruptcy help in credit scores?

One year after filing bankruptcy, your credit score can gain half or more of what it lost because of the bankruptcy.

5

What about debt consolidation?

Debt consolidation or reduction does not change how the creditors report and can actually do damage for longer than a bankruptcy can.

6

What about Divorce?

 As part of the typical divorce decree, spouses are responsible 50-50 for a number of debts and other debts are assigned solely to one of the spouses.

7

Do I have to list all property?

Under bankruptcy law, individuals are required by law to disclose all his estate, including potential money owed to him.

8

Am I required to do Credit Counseling?

Before an individual can file bankruptcy, that person is required to complete a “credit counseling course”.

9

What is Automatic Stay?

It is a powerful medicine for curing almost all the initial problems that come with insolvency.

10

Can bankruptcy stop a foreclosure?

The answer is a resounding yes. It is a very powerful tool to help save your home from foreclosure and require the bank to work with you to get you back in control.

11

What about a Deficiency Claim?

The dreaded deficiency haunts so many people after repossession and sale of collateral.  But once the collateral is gone, it is just another debt treated like all the rest and usually has very little bite in bankruptcy.
