Helping You Understand Your Options

Bankruptcy comes in more than one type, and what works best for one individual may not work best for the next. For example, Chapter 7, the type of bankruptcy that removes all debts in a discharge, may be the right option for many. However, income limits do dictate that some individuals cannot file this form. That said, you may be able to file Chapter 7, even if you think your income is too high, because of loopholes in the legislation. The goal of the Law Office of Stephen Doty is to help individuals determine which form of bankruptcy will best help them attain their financial goals.
