Fort Worth Bankruptcy Attorney
Financial problems are, unfortunately, a common household issue. The question that many individuals with financial problems have is: at what point do financial problems turn into a major issue? When should you ask for help? At Huebner Law Firm, PC, I can help you understand whether or not bankruptcy is the right option for you.
Signs that it might be time to consider filing include:
- You are unable to afford basic necessities including rent, groceries, gas, or utilities without using credit.
- You have fallen behind on your mortgage payments by more than a month.
- You have fallen behind on your car payments and are unable to catch up.
- You have suffered a major loss of income due to a job loss or pay reduction.
- You have experienced a medical emergency or some other sharp increase in expenses.
- You have fallen into a cycle of taking out cash advances and payday loans.
- You have acquired tax debt that you cannot pay off within one to two years.
- You have received notice of foreclosure or repossession.
What Are My Options?
If one or more of the above statements are true, and you are frequently losing sleep and suffering from stress and anxiety over your finances, filing for bankruptcy might be in your best interest. This is not a sign of failure. Rather, this means that you are taking the first step toward regaining control of your finances and finding relief from debt.
You have two options for filing for bankruptcy:
- If you have a lot of unsecured debt that you wish to eliminate, you can file for a discharge under Chapter 7.
- If you have mostly secured debt or high-value property you do not want to lose, you can file for a Chapter 13 and have your debts reorganized in a more manageable payment plan over a longer period of time.

Why should I file for bankruptcy
There are a number of benefits to bankruptcy, including avoiding foreclosure and putting an end to creditor harassment. Filing can also help resolve issues concerning repossession, past-due taxes, child support payments, and wage garnishments. If you’ve been sued because of a debt, filing for bankruptcy can also help you fight the lawsuit. I can help you understand what filing can mean for you and your family.
Will I lose all of my property
You might be surprised to hear that individuals who file for bankruptcy often lose little to nothing. Every case is different and the amount that you might have to forfeit depends upon a number of unique and complex factors. However, our firm is proud of our success in helping clients retain those assets that are important to them.
Can all debts be discharged
Most debts can be discharged in a bankruptcy, but not all. Some debts—such as most taxes, child support and alimony payments, and student loans—are nondischargeable, meaning they cannot be eliminated altogether. Fortunately, for these debts, it is possible to reschedule or re-organize your payments to be more manageable.
How does bankruptcy work
Bankruptcy can work in one of two ways. First, by filing for a form of bankruptcy referred to as Chapter 7, you can eliminate all dischargeable debt, including credit cards, car loans, mortgages, medical bills and more. Second, you can file a form of bankruptcy known as Chapter 13, which works to re-organize your debts to give you a longer period of time to pay them off. Chapter 13 is preferable to individuals dealing with nondischargeable debts, do not qualify for Chapter 7, or have high-value assets that they wish to protect.
Why do I need a lawyer
You could certainly file for bankruptcy on your own, but it’s not recommended. You’re already anxious enough without the added complexities of navigating the legal process. Having a lawyer handle your case takes the responsibility off of your shoulders and ensures that every detail will be handled correctly and on time. Not sure you can afford an attorney?
