Loan Debt

Debt Relief Assistance in Woodland Hills

At Merritt, Hagen & Sharf, LLP, we have helped our clients recover from many different types of debt—including those not typically discharged in bankruptcy such as student loans and tax debt. If you are dealing with overwhelming loans that you do not feel you can repay, we can help you achieve financial freedom and stability through viable federal debt relief options. For many of our clients, declaring Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy is the right solution.

For others, an alternative to bankruptcy such as debt negotiation or settlement is the more strategic option. Whatever your situation may be — no matter how complex or frustrating — we can help you assess the circumstances that affect you and examine the options available to you in order to achieve the most favorable outcome.

Benefits of Bankruptcy for Loan Debts

If you are dealing with large amounts of secured debt — such as home loans or car loans — Chapter 13 bankruptcy could help you keep your property while giving you the time you need to repay what you owe. Secured debts are those that hold physical property, such as your home or vehicle, as the surety or collateral for the loan. If you are behind on your mortgage payments and are receiving foreclosure notices, then filing under Chapter 13 could be an excellent way to keep your property while forcing your lender to accept an extended repayment schedule — usually between 3 and 5 years. We have helped many clients with overwhelming mortgage loans to regain control of their finances and keep their homes. The same options can apply to car loans.

Many types of unsecured loans, including medical bills and credit card debt, can be discharged in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Also called straight or liquidation bankruptcy, this form of federal debt relief allows filers to option a financial clean slate by discharging most — if not all — of their debt. In addition, the Woodland Hills bankruptcy attorneys at our firm have been able to help many of our clients protect their assets in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Learn more about how we can help you keep your property when filing for liquidation bankruptcy by setting up a case evaluation with our lawyers today.
