Types of Bankruptcy We Handle

We will analyze your case and advise you on the best path to take.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Often referred to as liquidation bankruptcy, Chapter 7 bankruptcy is designed for individuals and businesses that are unable to repay their debts. This type of bankruptcy allows for the discharge of most unsecured debts, such as credit card debt, medical bills, and personal loans. At The Law Offices of Gus Michael Farinella PC, we will:

Guide You Through the Process: From start to finish, we will be by your side, providing guidance and support to help you achieve a successful discharge of your debts.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 bankruptcy, also known as "reorganization bankruptcy," is ideal for individuals with a steady income who wish to repay their debts over time. This type of bankruptcy allows you to create a manageable debt repayment plan, typically lasting three to five years. Our team at The Law Offices of Gus Michael Farinella PC will:

Assess Your Eligibility: We will evaluate your income, expenses, and debts to determine if Chapter 13 is the best option for you.

Develop a Repayment Plan: Our attorneys will work with you to create a feasible repayment plan that meets the requirements of the bankruptcy court.

Support You Throughout the Process: We will provide ongoing support and representation, ensuring you remain compliant with the terms of your repayment plan.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Chapter 11 bankruptcy commonly known as business reorganization bankruptcy, is designed for businesses and individuals with substantial debts who need to restructure their financial obligations. 

This type of bankruptcy allows for the continuation of business operations while developing a plan to repay creditors. At The Law Offices of Gus Michael Farinella PC, we will:

Analyze Your Financial Situation: We will conduct a comprehensive analysis of your business's financial health to determine the viability of Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Develop a Reorganization Plan: Our attorneys will work closely with you to develop a detailed reorganization plan that addresses your debts while allowing your business to continue operating.

File and Manage Your Case: We will prepare and file all necessary documents, manage creditor negotiations, and represent you in court proceedings.
