What Our Client's Say

I was given the direction step-by-step in order to pay off my debt without having worries. I was also given directions for the things I need to get in writing on paper. The professional advice was “get your paperwork trail” after I got off the phone. The name and number were saved to my contacts. Much appreciated, Thank you!
Tim
Though I’m a new client, our first case evaluation over the phone felt that the lawyer knew his business and I felt that he was there to help me & without a doubt everyone else that is a client. I’d recommend this office to any & all!

How to Protect Your Assets in Bankruptcy in Portland, OR

Can You Safeguard Your Hard-Earned Assets in Bankruptcy? Bankruptcy can be scary, especially when yo…

Chapter 7 bankruptcy, often referred to as liquidation bankruptcy, involves the liquidation of non-exempt assets to repay creditors, after which remaining eligible debts are discharged. Chapter 13 bankruptcy, known as reorganization bankruptcy, allows individuals with a regular income to develop a repayment plan over three to five years to pay off some or all of their debts.

While bankruptcy will have a significant impact on your credit score in the short term, it’s not permanent. Typically, bankruptcy remains on your credit report for seven to ten years, depending on the type of bankruptcy filed. However, with responsible financial habits and time, you can rebuild your credit score.

Yes, many individuals filing for bankruptcy can retain certain assets through exemptions. Exemptions vary by state but commonly include primary residences, vehicles, retirement accounts, and personal belongings up to a certain value. A bankruptcy attorney can help you understand which assets may be protected in your specific situation.

The duration of the bankruptcy process depends on various factors, including the type of bankruptcy filed, the complexity of your case, and court processing times. Chapter 7 bankruptcy typically lasts around three to six months, while Chapter 13 bankruptcy can take three to five years to complete, as it involves a repayment plan. Your bankruptcy attorney can provide a more accurate timeline based on your circumstances.
