Credit Card Debt Relief in Pennsylvania

When credit card debt is high, one bad month or missed payment can start a chain reaction of late fees and added interest. If you’re feeling like you may never be able to get ahead, it may be time to consider personal bankruptcy. In many cases, credit card debt can be discharged in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. When debt is discharged, you are no longer legally required to pay it, and creditors are prohibited from taking further collection action. Request your free case evaluation today.

Creditor Harassment in Pennsylvania

When you’re already feeling the stress of large debts and mounting interest, the last thing you need is creditor harassment. The federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Pennsylvania FDCPA hold debt collectors to a standard. If you’re receiving frequent harassing telephone calls, being threatened with arrest, receiving calls at work after you’ve requested that they stop or otherwise being abused or deceived by debt collectors, help is available.

Filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows most Pennsylvania residents to discharge (eliminate the legal obligation to pay) many unsecured debts, including credit card debt, medical bills, old utility bills, many judgments and even some tax debt. If your income just won’t stretch to cover your outstanding bills, it’s time to find out whether Chapter 7 might offer the relief you need to move forward on a stronger financial footing.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Pennsylvania

If you’re earning regular income and making every effort to pay your bills but just can’t catch up on past due balances, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may provide the relief you need. In a Chapter 13 plan, you may be able to stretch out those past due bills across a three to five year repayment plan, putting a stop to the constant pressure and the accumulation of late fees. Chapter 13 often makes it possible to create a manageable repayment plan while retaining assets, including homes and cars.

Pennsylvania Foreclosure Prevention

For most people, filing bankruptcy will stop foreclosure proceedings immediately. That’s because an automatic stay is issued in most bankruptcy cases, prohibiting further collection action for as long as the stay is in effect. With the clock paused on foreclosure action, some homeowners are able to create a Chapter 13 bankruptcy plan that protects their homes. If you’re facing foreclosure and wondering whether bankruptcy might be the answer for you, don’t delay—schedule your free consultation right now.

Wage Garnishment in Pennsylvania

Wage garnishment is very limited in Pennsylvania. Although debt collectors may threaten to garnish your wages for delinquent credit card balances or past-due medical bills, Pennsylvania law allows for wage garnishment only in very specific circumstances. For example, wage garnishment may be used to collect some student loan debt, tax debt and child support.
