Credit Concern? Call Geraci Law!

Banks are cutting access to credit. Are you overwhelmed with bills? Are you worried about debt? Call Geraci Law.

Credit Concern? Call Geraci Law!

Have you noticed your available credit is cut? Did you see an account get closed? Credit card companies are cutting available lines of credit. Over 30 million people applied for unemployment as a result of the pandemic.

With the number of people unemployed, banks consider credit too big of a risk. So if you are late with payments, if you haven’t used the card – odds are the credit line will be cut.

If you are RELYING on credit to get you to the next paycheck, it’s not a great long term plan anyhow. Instead consider bankruptcy.

The cash you are spending on minimum payments that is NOT paying off the balances with interest could be the money you have as a safe hold. Create a budget and stick to it but you can’t create a budget until you deal with the past due balances.

Filing for bankruptcy is a FASTER way to handle your debt. Credit counseling, making minimum payments will cost you THOUSANDS in interest and it could take YEARS to pay off the balances. Your credit score still takes a hit and typically will take LONGER to get on the path to rebuilding.

You do NOT need credit cards. Realigning your budget and using a debit card could save you thousands. If you want a credit card, then pay it off every month. Only use the credit card for what you can pay off so you can AVOID interest. That timely payment every month can help you reestablish a payment history.

So if your credit line is cut, if your cards are maxed out, if you are simply overwhelmed by the debt – call us. It’s a free conversation that can change your life for the better.

5 Chapter 7 Common Questions

5 Chapter 7 Common Questions

Geraci Law wants to be a resource to you during these uncertain times. Here are answers to five common questions about filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Read previous posts about unanswered questions about Chapter 13 bankruptcies (5 Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Myths, What Can a Chapter 13 Do for Me?).

Will I lose my house or my car?

It’s important to meet with an attorney. Geraci Law does not want you to “lose” anything you do not want to lose. There are several factors in determining if you KEEP your house and car:

  • How much equity is in the house?
  • How many people are on title to the house?
  • Are you current with your payments?

These are some of the questions you will review with your attorney. The reason you hire an EXPERIENCED law firm like Geraci Law is to make sure you can keep what you want to keep. If your house is at risk, we’ll talk about alternative options like a Chapter 13. Geraci Law will provide your options to protect what you worked for.

Can I buy a house or car after filing a Chapter 7?

Filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy does not determine your financial future. Instead, it eliminates your CURRENT debt. Geraci Law clients have gone on to purchase homes, cars, boats, etc. The FIRST step before buying a house, car or any other asset, is to deal with your PRESENT debt. Solve that problem first and then save money for a down payment. Geraci Law will do anything we can to help you get on track to achieve your financial goals.

How much does bankruptcy cost?

The short answer is it’s a LOT LESS than your current debt most times. Geraci Law can file cases for no money down. We will work with you on payment plans that fit your budget. We will work with you to figure out a plan to get you out of debt. For fee quotes, call us. Let’s talk to figure out a plan.

Can I file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy if I am working?

YES! Many Chapter 7 filers are employed. Geraci Law can help you if you are working full-time, part-time, unemployed, disabled or retired.  Talking with an experienced Geraci Law attorney can help determine your Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 options based on your income, expenses a debt.

I filed before – how long do I have to wait before I can file another Chapter 7?

It is an eight year wait from the date you filed your previous Chapter 7. You eligibility is determined by the date when your Chapter 7 was FILED not discharged. If it has NOT been eight years, you can review your options for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

CHAPTER #3 WHAT CAUSES PEOPLE TO NEED TO FILE BANKRUPTCY

This is an easy one. Because most stuff other than bankruptcy is fraudulent. That means someone somewhere, on the internet, or maybe in Russia, or maybe your own bank, wants your money, and will say anything to get it.

1. “bill consolidation” is usually a fraud scheme There is no way to “consolidate” all your bills into one lower payment you can afford, pay your vehicles and mortgage and tax debt first, and stop every single creditor from bothering you, adding late charges, or suing you. No way. None. Nada. Except for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Oh, there’s that word again “bankruptcy.”

2. “Loan modification” Fraud schemes like “Legal Helpers Loan Modification” just stole people’s money and disappeared with millions. Banks usually string you along for months and lose your paperwork, making things worse. Then all they do is take your 30 year loan and turn it into a 40 year loan to “get” you a lower payment. Great, now you’ll die before you pay them off and they’ll get your house back after collection mostly interest payments.

3. “Credit Counseling” Possibly the worst fraud. Some of them pose as law firms. Some are “lawyers” who really should be in jail. Being a lawyer makes them try to take as much as the first year’s payments up front as fees”. They usually last a year before getting indicted and put out of business.

4. “Debt settlement” Definitely the worst. Run, do not walk, as fast as you can from these skunks. Legal Helpers Debt Resolution” and others stole $50 million or more and faded into the night. Their imitators are still around, and so are the lawyers involved. They only lost their law licenses for a couple years. Nice payday on your money!

All these schemes play on your guilty, embarrassment and confusion. They can’t stop late fees, repossessions, lawsuits, foreclosures, license suspension, or anything else. So, beware of “bill consolidation, mortgage modifiers, debt settlement and credit counseling”. We usually see folks who have paid $3,000 to $5,000 to bill consolidators, and have nothing to show to it, when they could have filed Chapter 7 or 13 and really solved their problems and gotten a true fresh start.

Bankruptcy is very predictable. Everything is in writing, and while there are a lot of stupid lawyers who do lose $3000 or $5000 of their client’s money in Chapter 7’s, and take Chapter 13 cases that fail quickly after they get paid, Geraci Law does not engage in shady practices. So why pay the same, and not get the name? Ask your friends and family, and even your boss at work. Chances are they’ll say, “talk to Geraci Law.”

Geraci Law Reviews

MELAttorney Mark Levine

I am a repeat Geraci Law client and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone! I came back after 10 years and was able to see my same attorney Mark Levine which made me very happy. Geraci & Mark provide excellent service. They are punctual and polite and professional and they are always attentive to our questions. They have answers for whatever questions we have. Definitely recommended!

 

MEGAttorney Megan Hayes

I wanted to say thank you to Meg and Marc. Since I sat down with Marc originally, he took the time and effort to really treat me like I was his own brother. He was really passionate about helping me. Both Marc and Meg helped me get my life back on track. No one communicates like they do. They are on point. They make sure I don’t forget about anything. With everyone busy these days, it’s truly comforting to have a company who cares that you are on track with your future. You are all very personal and I thank you for that!

KUL

Attorney Christine Kuhlman 

I had put off contacting a bankruptcy attorney out of fear of the process and the unknown. I didn’t want bankruptcy to turn my life upside down. At the same time, I was constantly stressed about my debt and whether I was on the verge of having my life turned upside down because of my inability to pay creditors.
After my initial phone call to Geraci Law I was contacted by Attorney Christine Kuhlman and we scheduled a video call. Inside of mere minutes of our call I felt confident that I was in good hands. My nerves settled down as Attorney Kuhlman explained the process and answered my questions. I followed her instructions as we stepped through the process. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly things moved along. It became clear that bankruptcy wasn’t going to be some long, seemingly endless process that I feared. I felt empowered.
The Client Corner proved to be an excellent tool through which documents were provided and exchanged. Keeping track of what I completed and needed to complete next was easy and effortless on my end. At no point did I feel that my case had fallen aside. It seemed that Attorney Kuhlman handled my case in the same manner that she would handle her own. Now that my case is ready to file (a mere week after first contact) I can stop wasting energy worrying about my financial future as though it were a lost cause. I feel that I have a large part of my life back.
Thank you Attorney Kuhlman and Geraci Law!
