Deciding to File for Bankruptcy
Bankruptcy is a legal process that allows individual consumers and businesses to discharge their debts when they are unable to make payments. A person may be chronically late with their payments to creditors or may not have the financial means to repay debts before they start to consider bankruptcy. When someone chooses to file for bankruptcy, they want to have a fresh start, one that is not plagued by their debt. They also want to settle their debt with their creditors to avoid incurring further burdens, like creditor harassment.
In some cases, filing for bankruptcy can stop the foreclosure of your home and can actually have a significant, positive impact on your financial situation. At other times, filing for bankruptcy may be the wrong thing to do. After we inform you of your rights and how bankruptcy may affect you, you can make a well-informed decision about your case. An experienced South Dakota bankruptcy lawyer can guide you through the process of filing a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 case and can ensure the process goes as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
