Manitowoc Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Lawyer

Trusted, Local Chapter 7 Attorney

Debt can affect everyone: professionals, entrepreneurs, families, business owners and the elderly. Job loss, divorce, an unexpected injury or medical condition can lead to long-term financial stress. Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows debtors to liquidate and eliminate unsecured debt, including credit cards and medical expenses. At The Law Office of C.R. Krieger in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, we are experienced with the varied issues and complexities faced by our clients. We will take the time to answer your questions, and to help you make the best decisions for your family.

What Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 7 is also known as a "liquidation". This means that non-exempt property of the debtor can be taken and sold to pay debts. As scary as this sounds, it is indeed quite rare for any property to be lost in this way. Virtually all assets are exempted under either federal or state exemption laws; however, the choice of which laws to use may be critically important to you. It could mean the loss of your home, cars, or money if improperly decided - and only an attorney can give this legal advice. Attorney C.R. Krieger has the knowledge and experience in bankruptcy exemption planning to help keep the property that's most important to you. In most cases, you can still protect your home, your car, and other personal property. In the end, the only thing we want you to lose is the obligation to pay debts.  If you do not qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you may also be able to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which allows for the reorganization of your debt.

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy for a distressed business operation may be the best solution for protecting personal assets from purely business debts. Attorney C.R. Krieger is experienced and capable of helping you to decide if this is the best avenue for your corporation or LLC.
