Skilled Philadelphia Bankruptcy Lawyer

Bankruptcy law involves the procedure or legal method by which a debtor is relieved of financial liability for its debts by establishing a court-approved reorganization plan or plan for partial repayment. A bankruptcy proceeding can either be entered into voluntarily by a debtor or initiated by creditors. After a bankruptcy proceeding is filed, creditors generally may not seek to collect their debts outside of the proceeding. The debtor is not allowed to transfer property that has been declared part of the estate subject to proceedings. Furthermore, certain pre-proceeding transfers of property, secured interests, and liens may be delayed or invalidated. Various provisions of the Bankruptcy Code also establish the priority of creditors’ interests.

The Philadelphia bankruptcy lawyer advisors work to give financially insolvent individuals and debtors of commercial enterprises relief from indebtedness. The Philadelphia bankruptcy chapter 13 attorneys can assist in a number of insolvency matters, ranging from the preparation of restructuring plans to making arrangements with creditors.

Philadelphia Bankruptcy Chapter 7 Lawyer

A bankruptcy filing under Chapter 7 is called liquidation. It is the most common type of bankruptcy proceeding. Liquidation involves the appointment of a trustee who collects the non-exempt property of the debtor, sells it and distributes the proceeds to the creditors. Not dischargeable in bankruptcy are alimony and child support, taxes, and fraudulent transactions. Filing a bankruptcy petition automatically suspends all existing legal actions and is often used to forestall foreclosure or imposition of judgment. After 45 or more days a creditor with a debt secured by real or personal property can petition the court to have the “automatic stay” of legal rights removed and a foreclosure to proceed. When the court formally declares a party as a bankrupt, a party cannot file for bankruptcy again for nine years.

Philadelphia Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Lawyer

Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows an existing Pennsylvania business to reorganize and refinance to be able to prevent final insolvency. Often there is no trustee, but a “debtor in possession,” and considerable time to present a plan of reorganization. The final plan often requires creditors to take only a small percentage of the debts owed them or to take payment over a long period of time. Chapter 13 is similar to Chapter 11, but is for individuals to work out payment schedules.
