Should You File for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
As mentioned, there are two main types of bankruptcy filings that we handle from our law office in Fort Myers, Florida: Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. Although the goals of each bankruptcy chapter are the same – eliminating as much debt as possible – the methods are quite different. We can help you determine what bankruptcy filing is right for you based on all the unique details of your debt.
A summary of both types of bankruptcy:
- Chapter 7: When you have overwhelming debt that has no clear way to remove, Chapter 7 bankruptcy might be necessary. It has the power to dispel large amounts of debt at once, but some of your assets and finances could be vulnerable to recollection. Some Florida bankruptcy exemptions could provide protections, though.
- Chapter 13: If you are earning a fair wage while also trying to overcome difficult debt, Chapter 13 bankruptcy could be the right choice. In this process, you, your attorney, and creditors will create a new debt repayment plan across the next 3 to 5 years. This plan usually starts by reducing your total debt significantly and then staggering out payments for what remains.
How Much Does a Bankruptcy Lawyer Cost in Florida?
You might be wondering how you can afford a bankruptcy attorney if you are going into bankruptcy.

The truth is that the cost of hiring an attorney can vary depending on the complexity of your bankruptcy filing.
However, our promise to you as our client is to offer you competitive rates for all of our legal bankruptcy services. Our goal is to get you through bankruptcy without financial hardship, which means charging a reasonable amount that you can afford once your bankruptcy case closes.
