Robert A. Stiberman. Attorney with over 20 years of experience in bankruptcy law.

  • People file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy when they want to:

    • Eliminate debts
    • Stop collection calls
    • Put an end to lawsuits
  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy tends to be the most preferred because it is a quicker process compared to other forms of bankruptcy. It can also be less expensive. Many types of debts are forgiven when you file for bankruptcy. These include:

    • Credit card balances
    • Overdue utility payments
    • Medical bills
    • Personal loans
  • If you are willing to give up a house or car that secures a debt, you may also be able to eliminate mortgage or car payments. Debts that are typically not forgiven during Chapter 7 bankruptcy include:

    • Taxes
    • Student loans
    • Child support
    • Non-dischargeable debts

    At Stiberman Law, we can help you make sure that enough debt will be eliminated to make it worth filing for bankruptcy.

How Do I Qualify For Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Miami?

To qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy your family’s gross income has to be lower than the median income for the same size family in Florida. Chapter 7 can be a powerful tool when you have little or no assets and need to improve your financial situation.

How Long Does Chapter 7 Take?

While there is no set time, typically, Chapter 7 bankruptcy takes 4-6 months from the time the case is filed to the final discharge of debts. If there are no assets involved, cases can usually be discharged in just several weeks. Cases with many assets can get complicated and take longer to resolve.

Common Issues Facing Our Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Clients

Through our experience with Chapter 7 bankruptcy clients, we have helped them navigate through several common issues. These include:

  • Wage Garnishment

    This is one of the most effective tools creditors use to collect a debt. They can go after your paycheck, sometimes taking up to 25%. Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy can be an effective way to stop this from happening.

  • Mortgage or Condominium Foreclosure

    Banks, private lenders, reverse mortgage companies, as well as condominium associations can try to foreclose on your home for non-payment.

  • Expensive Vehicle Payments

    Where applicable, you may be able to lower your vehicle payments through bankruptcy.
