DuPage County Bankruptcy Lawyers

Experienced Bankruptcy Attorneys Serving Lombard, Bloomingdale, and Throughout Illinois

Many good people go through financial hardships. Tough economic times have led to countless job losses as companies downsize and/or jobs are moved overseas. In other cases, unexpected medical expenses place an undue burden on family finances, causing people to become overwhelmed with their mounting bills. If you are going through financial trouble, bankruptcy can offer a fresh start and place you on the road to financial recovery. To find out if this is the right option for you, it is best to speak with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer.

At Mevorah Law Offices LLC, we have several decades of experience helping families that are facing financial trouble get back on their feet. Our award-winning attorneys have extensive experience with all types of bankruptcy cases in Chicago and throughout northern Illinois. We are also skilled across a wide range of other practice areas; including divorce and family law, personal injury, criminal, workers compensation and immigration. Our in-depth knowledge of several areas of the law allows us to craft the most comprehensive solution to relieve your financial difficulties.

We have received recognition not only for our experience and skill, but also for our unwavering commitment to protecting the interests of each client we serve.

Individual and Small Business Bankruptcies in Illinois

We provide skilled assistance with all types of bankruptcy and related issues for individuals and small businesses. These include:

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Those who have a high amount of bills and little or no hope of paying them back in a reasonable amount of time often opt for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. For those that qualify, Chapter 7 can eliminate most types of unsecured debt. When you file, an automatic stay goes into effect halting collection activity from most creditors. You are also allowed to exempt a portion of your personal property (such as a certain amount of equity in your home, vehicle and other personal items) from being liquidated to pay off your debts, up to the maximum allowed by the state of Illinois.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 is essentially a court-approved debt consolidation plan. This option is suitable for those with steady income that need more time and/or a lower monthly payment in order to pay back their debts. Using Chapter 13 bankruptcy, debtors are able to propose a plan to repay their debts over the course of three to five years. During the process, it is often possible to significantly reduce interest on debts and come up with a lower and more manageable overall monthly payment.

The Bankruptcy Reform and Consumer Protection Act (BAPCPA) made widespread changes to the law and was intended to help protect creditors and reduce fraud. These changes placed restrictions on qualifications for filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy. In some cases, individuals are forced to opt for Chapter 13 (reorganization) if they do not meet the requirements for a Chapter 7 filing.

At Mevorah Law Offices LLC, we thoroughly examine your finances to determine your options and the best course of action. Whether that means Chapter 7, Chapter 13 or a non-bankruptcy solution, we put our experience to work to develop the best strategy to help you obtain financial relief. For a free consultation with one of our experienced Illinois bankruptcy attorneys, contact our office today at 630-932-9100630-932-9100.

We are a debt-relief agency under the United States Bankruptcy Code. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the bankruptcy code.

Creditor questioned charges within 90-120 days of filing Ch. 7. Our attorney contacted the creditor and explained the client's situation, including his medical and health situation. The Creditor did not object to the discharge or seek a reaffirmation. Client's debts were discharged.

Chapter 7 filing eliminated a large number of debts the client was left with after a divorce. Chapter 13 bankruptcy filed in 2005. During the plan client missed mortgage and trustee payments. Our attorney was successful in negotiating these payments, preventing the case from being dismissed for lack of payment. Client's bankruptcy discharged in April 2010.

Due to a client's income being above the Illinois median and her low monthly mortgage payments, her Means-Test Calculation showed a presumption of abuse. After consulting with the Firm's three bankruptcy attorneys, the responsible attorney recommended that the client purchase a "clunker" car that changed the Means-Test Calculation from a presumption of abuse to the presumption of no abuse. Client had over $118,000.00 in general unsecured debts completely discharged.

Credit Card Company threatened to oppose discharge due to the client making almost $4,000.00 in purchases during the three months before filing for bankruptcy. Mevorah Law Offices LLC negotiated with the attorney for the credit card company to drop their opposition and let the bankruptcy move forward.
