In these difficult times, circumstances beyond your control may find you heavily in debt.  No matter how hard you try, you are unable to pay your living expenses and make significant payments to lower the debt you owe. Your creditors will not work with you to reduce the debt and fees imposed only increase the amount of the debt.

Soon you start receiving harassing phone calls from debt collectors, the threat of lawsuits from your creditors, the entry of judgments against you and wage garnishment. The stress and worry over your financial situation can cause problems in your personal, family and professional life.
Does this sound familiar? If so, know that you are not alone. If you qualify, filing for bankruptcy may provide a solution for your financial problems and provide you with a “fresh start”.
Bankruptcy can be a complex process. You should rely on an experienced bankruptcy lawyer to make sure you choose the bankruptcy that is right for you. Attorney Magda Abdo-Gomez will guide you through the bankruptcy process from start to finish.
An individual debtor can file for debt relief under:
