How Bankruptcy Can Help You

Bankruptcy is a legal process that provides court-ordered relief from qualifying debts. The exact process, timeline, and requirements depend on the chapter you file.

Our New York bankruptcy attorney can help you file:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Chapter 7 typically takes less than six months. The trustee may use your assets to repay creditors, but most people who file Chapter 7 can protect everything they own from this liquidation process by claiming state or federal bankruptcy exemptions. Chapter 7 is the most common type of bankruptcy filed by consumers in the United States. To qualify, you generally must make less than the median income in your state for a household the same size as yours. However, there are some exceptions to this threshold.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 13 is a much longer process. For 3-5 years, you will make monthly payments toward your debt, and the trustee will collect the payments and distribute the funds to your creditors. It does not involve a liquidation process, but you will need to pay the value of your nonexempt property over the course of your plan. Under certain circumstances, you may benefit from a vehicle loan cramdown and/or second mortgage lien-stripping. There is no income limit for Chapter 13, but you must owe less than $419,275 in unsecured debt and $1,257,850 in secured debt.

No matter which chapter you file, your petition will trigger a court order called the automatic stay. This order protects you from all types of debt collection tactics for the duration of your case. As such, you will be free from calls, letters, lawsuits, wage garnishment, foreclosure, repossession, and more.

Once your case is complete, the court will discharge qualifying debts. When a debt is discharged, the borrower is no longer liable for it, and the creditor or debt collector is no longer allowed to pursue it. This elimination of debt is permanent. You can receive a debt discharge after either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.

Through bankruptcy, you may be able to wipe out debts such as:

  • Medical bills
  • Credit card debt
  • Unsecured personal loans (e.g. “payday loans”)
  • Unpaid utility bills
  • Old income taxes (in certain cases)
  • Student loans (in rare cases)

Bankruptcy can also eliminate your liability for mortgage debt and automobile loans, but that may not mean you are safe from foreclosure or repossession. Our New York bankruptcy lawyer can provide a more personalized assessment of how bankruptcy may improve your financial circumstances and affect your property ownership.

The Law Office of Seni Popat has years of experience helping injured clients obtain the financial compensation they need and deserve. Our attorney has developed a reputation in New York for fierce litigation, knowledgeable counsel, and a personal commitment to the wellbeing of his clients.

Cases We Handle

Each type of injury and accident comes with different legal implications for a personal injury lawsuit. At the Law Office of Seni Popat, our attorney has considerable experience with a wide range of case types, and he takes as much time as necessary to fully assess your situation before developing a personalized legal strategy.

Our New York personal injury law firm can assist you with all the following events, and more:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Nursing home injuries and abuse
  • Catastrophic injuries

No matter what level of injury you have sustained, our attorney is here to provide the compassionate support and aggressive legal advocacy you need. Our goal is to handle the legal complications and processes of your case so you can focus fully on your recovery.

Get the Support You Need Sooner Rather Than Later

The worst thing you can do after an accident is wait to seek professional support. No matter where you live, your personal injury claim will be subject to a statute of limitations, which is the time limit you have to file your case. In New York, the statute of limitations for a personal injury is generally three years, meaning you have three years to initiate the process following the date of your injury. Furthermore, it takes time to develop a solid case that will prove another party’s level of fault.

We also recommend seeking medical treatment right away—even if you don’t believe you’re seriously injured. Immediate medical attention can help you make a full and speedy recovery. It can also prevent a court from reducing your compensation based on your failure to uphold your duty to mitigate damages.

The sooner you get in touch with us, the more time we will have to build a high-powered, effective case on your behalf. Call (718) 340-3385 or send us an online message to schedule your courtesy evaluation today.
