For years, we at Compassionate Counsel have provided comprehensive debt relief services. From debt settlements and negotiations to Chapter 7 bankruptcy, our team of experienced lawyers will help you through whatever process works best for your situation.

Is Bankruptcy Right for You?

Bankruptcy can be a difficult decision to make, but it may be the right solution for people struggling with overwhelming debt. At Compassionate Counsel, our bankruptcy attorneys in Scottsdale are here to help you navigate through the process and find a resolution that fits your unique situation.

When considering bankruptcy, it's important to understand your options and the potential benefits it can provide:

  • Debt Relief: Bankruptcy can provide relief from unmanageable debt and stop creditor harassment, wage garnishment, and foreclosure.
  • Fresh Start: Filing for bankruptcy can give you a fresh start and the opportunity to rebuild your financial future.
  • Automatic Stay: Once you file for bankruptcy, an automatic stay is put in place, which halts all collection efforts and legal actions against you.
  • Asset Protection: Depending on the type of bankruptcy you file, you may be able to protect certain assets from being liquidated.
  • Debt Discharge: Chapter 7 bankruptcy, also known as a liquidation plan, can potentially discharge most of your unsecured debts, giving you a clean slate.

If you're unsure if bankruptcy is the right option for you, our compassionate attorneys can evaluate your financial situation and provide guidance on the best course of action. Contact Compassionate Counsel today to schedule a consultation and take the first step towards financial freedom.

How Often Can You File Bankruptcy in Arizona? 

In Arizona, there are timelines for filing for bankruptcy multiple times. This applies to both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies. 

If you have completed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy you can not file for another 8 years. If you have already completed a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case, you may not file a Chapter 7 case for 6 years. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is an option where all of the filer's debts are erased, while a Chapter 13 bankruptcy is when the filer agrees to a repayment plan with their creditors over 3-5 years. It is wise to speak with an experienced attorney who can advise you on the best course of action and explain the potential long-term implications of filing.  

Chapter 7 Is a Liquidation Plan

Generally, all your assets — including your home — will be exempt from the process. The result of a successful Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the elimination of most or all of your debts, including your credit cards, medical bills, and payday loans. A brief (and free!) consult with us at Compassionate Counsel can determine whether you qualify for this type of fresh start.

What Is Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is a legal process that allows individuals or businesses to eliminate or repay their debts under the protection of the bankruptcy court. It is designed to provide a fresh start for those who are overwhelmed by debt.

Can Bankruptcy Stop Foreclosure?

Yes, filing for bankruptcy can temporarily stop foreclosure proceedings. When you file for bankruptcy, an automatic stay is put in place, which prevents creditors from taking further action, including foreclosure. However, it is important to note that bankruptcy is not a permanent solution to foreclosure. You will need to work with your bankruptcy attorney to determine the best course of action to address your specific situation.

How Long Does the Bankruptcy Process Take?

The duration of the bankruptcy process depends on the type of bankruptcy you file and the complexity of your case. Chapter 7 bankruptcy typically takes around 3-6 months to complete, while Chapter 13 bankruptcy can take 3-5 years. It is important to work closely with your bankruptcy attorney to ensure a smooth and efficient process.
