Helping you find debt relief
When mounting debt begins to feel unmanageable, bankruptcy can provide relief. At the Law Office of J. David Outtrim, P.C., we can help you decide whether filing for bankruptcy is the most effective way for you to take control of your debt.
Negotiators of debt relief options
Bankruptcy is not your only option for managing extensive debt. Attorney Outtrim routinely works with creditors to develop out-of-court solutions that avoid bankruptcy. Frequently, we can negotiate a smaller debt amount payable in more manageable monthly installments.
Debt analysis assistance
At the Law Office of J. David Outtrim, P.C., we have been assisting people with overwhelming debts for more than 21 years. We analyze your case to determine if bankruptcy will advance your immediate and long-term financial goals. We review your debts, income and expenses, and explain the full effects of bankruptcy on your family, business, home ownership and access to credit. If bankruptcy is the right choice, attorney Outtrim can provide detailed information about the bankruptcy process and a complete picture of the outcome you should expect. Our upfront approach to bankruptcy gives you confidence in your financial future.
Reprieve through automatic stay
Filing a bankruptcy petition automatically triggers a stay, meaning creditors must immediately stop collection efforts, including lawsuits, letters and phone calls. We can correspond with your creditors from the moment you file for bankruptcy and act entirely on your behalf.
Your bankruptcy options
Chapter 7 bankruptcy
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is available to individuals and businesses looking to quickly and simply resolve their debts. Provided you pass the court’s means test, Chapter 7 bankruptcy grants you relief from debts through the liquidation of your non-exempt assets. Because many household and personal items are exempt, you can make a fresh start with limited disruption to your life.
Chapter 11 bankruptcy
For corporations, partnerships and sole proprietorships, Chapter 11 bankruptcy permits your business to continue operating while you pay creditors under a reorganization plan.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy
An option for families facing foreclosure or for those with higher incomes, Chapter 13 bankruptcy permits you to pay off debts under a court confirmed installment plan extending three to five years. This option provides numerous advantages, including the possibility of keeping your home.
