Full-Service Bankruptcy Representation

Bankruptcy can be a complex and daunting process, but it also offers a fresh start for folks and families facing overwhelming debt. At The Dellutri Law Group, PA, we provide full-service support to help you understand your options and guide you through every step of the process.

Our services include:

  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: Often referred to as "liquidation bankruptcy," Chapter 7 allows individuals to discharge most of their unsecured debts, such as credit card bills and medical expenses. This process typically involves selling non-exempt assets, if any exist, to pay off creditors.
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: Known as "reorganization bankruptcy," Chapter 13 enables individuals with regular income to create a repayment plan to pay off all or part of their debts over three to five years while keeping their assets.
  • Debt Defense: We provide legal defense against creditor lawsuits, helping you to challenge any unjust claims and protect your rights.
  • Foreclosure Defense: If you are facing foreclosure, we can help you explore options to save your home, including loan modifications, short sales, and defending against wrongful foreclosure actions.
  • Consumer Protection: We help clients who’ve faced predatory lending practices, creditor harassment, and violations of consumer protection laws.

Is Bankruptcy Right for Me?

Deciding whether to file for bankruptcy is a significant decision that depends on your unique financial situation. Here are some factors to consider:

  • Debt Amount: Evaluate the total amount of your debt and your ability to repay it.
  • Income: Consider your current and future income and whether it can cover your living expenses and debt repayments.
  • Assets: Assess your assets and determine which ones may be protected under bankruptcy exemptions.
  • Financial Goals: Think about your long-term financial goals and how bankruptcy might help you achieve them.

Bankruptcy may be a suitable option if you are struggling to make ends meet, facing foreclosure, dealing with wage garnishments, or unable to pay your debts despite your best efforts. Our Naples bankruptcy lawyers can help you assess your situation and determine the best course of action.

Naples Bankruptcy FAQ

What Is the Difference Between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy involves the liquidation of non-exempt assets to pay off creditors, resulting in the discharge of most unsecured debts. It's typically suited for individuals with limited income and assets.
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy allows individuals with a regular income to create a repayment plan to pay off debts over three to five years, keeping their assets. It's ideal for those who have significant assets they want to keep or who can afford a repayment plan.

Should I File Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

The decision between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 depends on several factors, including your income, assets, and financial goals. Chapter 7 may be the best option if you have little disposable income and primarily unsecured debts. Chapter 13 could be more appropriate if you have a steady income, valuable assets you want to protect, or need time to catch up on missed payments (e.g., mortgage or car loan).

How Will Bankruptcy Affect My Credit Score?

Bankruptcy will have a negative impact on your credit score, and it will remain on your credit report for seven to ten years. However, it can also provide a fresh start, allowing you to rebuild your credit over time. Many people find that their credit score begins to improve shortly after their bankruptcy case is resolved.

Can I Keep My Home and Car if I File for Bankruptcy?

In many cases, you can keep your home and car during bankruptcy, especially if you file for Chapter 13 and continue making your payments under the repayment plan. In Chapter 7, you may be able to keep these assets if they are exempt under state or federal exemption laws.

What Debts Can Be Discharged in Bankruptcy?

Most unsecured debts, such as credit card debt, medical bills, and personal loans, can be discharged in bankruptcy. However, some debts, like student loans, child support, alimony, and certain tax debts, are typically not dischargeable.

How Long Does the Bankruptcy Process Take in Naples, Fl?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy usually takes about three to six months from filing to discharge. Chapter 13 bankruptcy involves a repayment plan that lasts three to five years, with the discharge occurring after the completion of the plan.
