Lee's Summit Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Lawyer
Independence Debt Relief Attorney
Located in the Kansas City area, the Law Offices of Gerald W. Furnell, LLC, assists clients with Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceedings. Unlike Chapter 13, which can extend a client's fresh start for up to five years, a Chapter 7 filing eliminates debt immediately. This immediate debt relief helps individuals and families to gain a quick, fresh start on the path to financial well-being.
In order to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Missouri individuals and families must meet certain income guidelines. If you fall below these guidelines, there is a presumption that you qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy relief. If you are above the guidelines, your attorney will have to explain to the court why you still qualify. If you are unable to qualify for Chapter 7, you may still be eligible for Chapter 13 bankruptcy relief.
Federal courts publish certain official bankruptcy forms, which must be used to file and take action in bankruptcy cases. We often recommend that potential clients complete one of these forms to determine if Chapter 7 bankruptcy is right for them. Please visit our Resources page for a link to a form. We can discuss it with you during a free and confidential consultation.
At the Law Offices of Gerald W. Furnell, LLC, we will help you explore all of your financial options before making big decisions about personal bankruptcy and your debt situation. We know that being in debt can be overwhelming. We also understand that debt often comes from situations that are beyond your control. A divorce, a layoff, and an unexpected illness can all contribute to mounting debt. We believe that your lawyer's job is not to judge you but to help you obtain the relief you need and deserve.
