For many Virginians, living with debt is just another part of life. Overdue bills, student loans, credit card bills, medical expenses, past-due mortgage payments, and numerous other expenses can quickly become unmanageable despite your best efforts.
At FerrisWinder, PLLC, we are a team of attorneys and professionals committed to helping people in Richmond and throughout the region retake control of their financial lives. For most, bankruptcy, namely Chapter 7, provides the most efficient and effective method for discharging debts and starting anew.
Overcoming Financial Hardships One Case At A Time
Bankruptcy is about protection, not punishment. Regardless of what you may have heard, filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy offers numerous benefits, including:
- Stopping wage garnishments
- Stopping creditor harassment
- Stopping foreclosures
- Exemptions that allow filers to retain their property
- A discharge of qualifying unsecured debts
Once your debts are discharged and your bankruptcy is complete, you will have the opportunity to start over with a clean slate. This means that in a relatively short period of time, you can rebuild credit and obtain a loan for a car or home.
With more than 35 years of combined legal experience helping hardworking people in our local communities, we are confident that we can help you find a solution to your debt issues. We will sit down with you, explain the bankruptcy process, outline debts that can be discharged and those that cannot, and work closely with you at each step.
