MY SON GOT SICK AND I HAD TO INCUR A LOT OF OUT-OF-POCKET EXPENSES AND FELL BEHIND ON A LOT OF BILLS. CAN YOU HELP ME?

The whole purpose of filing bankruptcy is to help honest people get a fresh start for circumstances that occurred outside of their control.

Recently, a lady came to TAIEBLAW who earns a very good salary but had to take care of her child who got sick. As a result, she fell behind on her rent and numerous other bills.

A Personalized Solution

In this situation, Mr. Taieb was able to file a Chapter 13 petition to help this woman from Burlington County, since she did not want to lose her apartment to eviction. Now that she earns a good salary, she qualifies for a repayment plan to stop the eviction and deal with her other debts. Also, her property is protected.

On the other hand, if she was current with rent payments and just had substantial credit cards or medical obligations, she would have been eligible for a Chapter 7 where she could have discharged all her debt.

However, if somebody has too much disposable income each month, they would not be eligible for a Chapter 7, since they have money to pay back creditors.
