Chapter 13 bankruptcy helps many people who have fallen behind and can’t catch up. Chapter 13 can also help people who want to keep property that serves as security for a debt, such as a home or car. If you have regular income but are running short every month, watching late fees mount as you juggle your bills and never seem to make any headway, find out whether a Chapter 13 repayment plan might give you the breathing room you need.

Stop Home Foreclosure in Michigan

We’re frequently asked the question, “Can bankruptcy stop foreclosure?” In the long-term, the answer depends on the specifics of your situation. However, bankruptcy can pause the process. In most cases, an automatic stay takes effect as soon as the bankruptcy petition is filed. The stay stops collection action, including foreclosure. In some cases, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may help you avoid foreclosure altogether. Schedule a free consultation to learn more.

Michigan Wage Garnishment Laws

In Michigan, up to 25% of disposable income may be withheld, so long as that leaves at least 30 times the minimum wage. That can be a significant drop for a family on a budget, and can send your finances into a downward spiral. Fortunately, in most cases, bankruptcy can stop wage garnishment and, in many cases, wipe out the underlying debt. If your wages are being garnished or you’ve received notice of a garnishment, act now to learn more.
