Your First Step

To a Fresh Start


stoppinggarnishmentsHelping You Keep Your Property

Losing your car, personal property, bank accounts or paycheck to aggressive creditors can have devastating consequences. This may not only cost you your job, but your marriage, health and livelihood. We are here to help.

At the Bankruptcy Clinic, PC, we use the bankruptcy laws to stop repossession, garnishment and attachments on your property. Our bankruptcy attorneys have helped over 10,000 people in Southern Illinois obtain debt relief and a fresh financial start. We can help you, too. Contact us to schedule a free consultation.

Garnishment and Repossession Actions Are Stopped Immediately

A skilled bankruptcy lawyer at our firm will review your financial situation and explain your bankruptcy options. These include a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing, which can help you eliminate debts and stop repossession, wage garnishment, creditor harassment and judgment actions.

The day we file your Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy, all repossession, garnishment and attachment proceedings are stopped. We can lift a freeze on your bank accounts while stopping any withholdings on your paycheck. We can even remove judgment liens on your home you may not have even known about. Our firm will handle all aspects of your case efficiently and affordably.

You Can Keep Your Vehicle and Your Property

In a bankruptcy, you can keep your vehicle and your personal property. We can reduce or eliminate many of your other unsecured debts so that you can afford payments on the property most valuable to you — such as your home and car. In a Chapter 13, we can structure a repayment plan allowing you to keep your vehicle by reducing or modifying your payments to a level you can better afford. In doing so, we can free up extra cash and reduce the stress in your life.

Recover a Repossessed Vehicle

If your car, truck or SUV has been repossessed within the last 20 days, we may still be able to recover it through a Chapter 13 filing. You may have to pay a towing charge and storage fee back through your repayment plan, but that might be minimal compared to the cost of buying another vehicle. Of course, it is always much easier if you come see us before your vehicle is repossessed.

Take the first step toward a fresh financial start by calling the Bankruptcy Clinic, PC.
