Helping You Get a Fresh Financial Start in Merrillville and Gary, IN
Solutions for those facing money crises in Lake County and Porter County
Most people who file bankruptcy in Indiana do so because an event such as job loss, divorce or illness has put them into a financial hole. At Weiss & Schmidgall, P.C., in Merrillville, Indiana, our job is to give you a fresh financial start by wiping out as much of your debt as possible. For over a decade, our clients have trusted us to give diligent, intelligent and experienced legal advice when financial disasters hit.
What is the purpose of bankruptcy law?
If you’re struggling with crushing debt issues, one option is to file a bankruptcy petition under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. For tough times like those you currently face, the bankruptcy laws allow consumers a legal way to rescue themselves — Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the two forms of bankruptcy generally permitted to individuals and families.
Chapter 7 bankruptcies discharge — or forgive — the debts that you’ve incurred over time, although there are income and other requirements that a Weiss & Schmidgall attorney can guide you through. Chapter 13 bankruptcies, on the other hand, are typically used to extend the time to pay debts, such as mortgage payments and car payments.
Business owners, both large and small, also have an option of Chapter 7 and Chapter 13.
Our law firm provides a full range of bankruptcy and debt counseling services
Since a bankruptcy can immediately stop harassment from creditors and debt collectors, pause student loans, stay holdovers and repair credit.
