From Attorney Peter Francis Geraci’s, The Complete Book on Bankruptcy

If your house is worth a lot of money, or even if it is only worth more than your mortgage plus homestead exemption, you may not be able to file a Chapter 7 and still keep the house. You may have to do a Chapter 13 repayment plan to protect your equity in the house. It is necessary to bring in a recent appraisal if you want competent advice from your attorney. You do not need an expensive appraisal. You may already have one if you have recently refinanced the house, or if you recently purchased it. A letter appraisal from a local real estate agent will do.

 

Example: Mr. and Mrs. Robertson have fallen behind in their house payments, because Mr. Robertson was ill for 6 months. They were served with a foreclosure suit, and want to save their house. They have no other bills. Their neighbors, the Smiths, have a lot of bills, but they are current only on their house payment.

The Peter Francis Geraci Chapter 7 or 13 Solution: The Robertson’s can file under Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Act to pay the 6 months of arrears, and foreclosure costs, over as long as 36 months. They have to start paying their regular mortgage payments again, but the mortgage company has to stop the foreclosure, and accept regular payments again. The Smiths can file under Chapter 7, and discharge all of their debt, and they can keep their house since it is worth $80,000, and their equity is less than $15,000 allowed as exempt from creditors under Illinois law. Other states have other laws relating to homestead.

Reach Financial Goals With Geraci Law

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a GREAT way to discharge your debt. You can discharge your credit debts, medical bills and remaining balances after repossessions.

Reach Financial Goals With Geraci Law

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a GREAT way to discharge your debt. You can discharge your credit debts, medical bills and remaining balances after repossessions. It puts you on track to reach your financial goals.

Think about it. You are making your minimum credit payments every month, but then USING the same credit because your cash is gone. Add high interest rates and you are in the middle of a vicious never ending cycle of credit use.

Take how much you are spending in minimum payments every month. Take the credit card monthly minimums and multiple it by 12. This is how much you are paying EVERY YEAR in credit card minimums.

This is money you are giving away to the banks. Invest in YOUR future instead of the banks. At $1,200 in minimum credit payments per month – that’s $14,400 per YEAR you could put toward retirement, down payment on a house, buying a car for cash. It’s an opportunity to create a better situation for you and your family.

Geraci Law is here to help you REACH your goals. Our attorneys and staff make the process hassle-free so you can focus on your future.

Reviews from PFG Geraci Law Clients 

Below are REAL reviews from Geraci Law clients.

For Attorney Sharon Hunt, “Finding yourself in a position where you’re 25 years old, in over your head in CC debt and recently unemployed was, needless to say, stressful and embarrassing. When I started considering my options-bankruptcy felt scary and like an option that could ruin my future. When I made the decision to move forward with this option. I looked into who I felt would make me feel taken care of. Peter Geraci and the firm represented themselves in such a way that I felt comfortable going in for my consultation and after speaking with Attorney Jonathan Parker I knew I was in good hands. He was kind, professional and direct. He made sure I understood all of the options and the process. I’m currently waiting to have my meeting of creditors and feel confident that Geraci Law has done everything to make this go as smoothly as possible and all taken care of.  Thank you Geraci Law & team!”

For Attorney Joseph Blaha, “Very helpful very informative 5 stars to GERACI and 5 stars to our attorney JOSEPH BLAHA he truly is one of kind. He answered all of my questions to the up most level of professionalism. Even with my children present, he was patience understanding of me and my wife situation. Even when my wife left to go get our other daughter. He explained all the forums to her as well. So if you are ever in need of help with a chapter 7 or 13 I recommend Joseph Blaha at Geraci!”

For Attorney Mark Levine, “Great staff. Mark Levine was knowledgeable and helpful every step of the way, and helped us navigate a number of potential roadblocks with ease. If you’re buried in debt and need help, we would definitely recommend consulting Geraci Law.”

Can I file another Chapter 13 after dismissal, or after Chapter 7 Discharge?

When you filed Chapter 13, you had a plan, based on your income, expenses, and debts, which you had on the day you filed! But things can change. What do you do when you are in a Chapter 13 and change jobs, lose income, or get more debt or expenses?

Bankruptcy.jpgWhen you filed Chapter 13, you had a plan, based on your income, expenses, and debts, which you had on the day you filed!  But things can change.

Being Sued? Call Geraci Law Today!

What is a lawsuit?   It’s a bill collector asking a court for a JUDGMENT!  Why do creditors hire lawyers to get a JUDGMENT?  lawsuitBecause then they can use the Court to COLLECT!!  First they hire the sheriff to serve you with the complaint.  If you don’t have a defense, they can then get their JUDGMENT!

How do creditors COLLECT?  First, they may record the judgment with the County you live in or have property in.  Then it becomes a “lien” or “right to collect when sold”.  That means they can sell your real estate, or personal property!!!  Serious!

Next, they can ask your bank or employer to turn over your money or paycheck!  Whooops!

How can you stop a lawsuit or judgment?  Pay them!  If you can’t pay them, get a free phone mini-consultation with Geraci Law.  Chapter 7 can eliminate debt.

Anything…But Bankruptcy?

Why do people waste all their money on phony debt consolidation frauds, give their pensions to pay day loans, and walk away from their houses, instead of getting bankruptcy protection?

Why don’t more people file bankruptcy?  Because they are either ill-informed, or ashamed to be in need of help? NOOOO….. They think the CURE is worse than the ILLNESS!

FMegaphone Hand, business concept with text Get Out of Debt, vector illustrationor the same reasons, some people actually kill their spouses instead of getting a divorce, or suffer and die of cancer instead of going to the doctor.  They drive their car with the red engine light on until it blows the engine.  Many people will do the opposite of what is good for them.

Bankruptcy Isn’t Personal – It’s Business

Donald Trump never filed for bankruptcy. Trump’s companies have. He utilized laws in place to protect himself and reorganize his company’s debt.

The most recent bankruptcy filing was in 2009. Trump was elected President of the United States in 2016 showing people did not care about the financial distress. He used bankruptcy as a tool to restructure for future success. When asked about bankruptcy, Trump said, “Basically I’ve used the laws of the country to my advantage and to other people’s advantage just as Leon Black has, Carl Icahn, Henry Kravis has, just as many, many others on top of the business world have.”Trump

Taj Mahal Casino Resort, the Plaza Hotel, Castle Hotel & Casino, Trump Plaza, Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts and Trump Entertainment Resorts filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The companies consolidated debt in order to pay off creditors and remain open.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/debtwire/2015/08/18/a-trip-down-donald-trumps-bankruptcy-memory-lane/#3af6b7d04609

DebtTrump realized that his businesses needed bankruptcy protection, and would not survive unless they used the bankruptcy laws to reorganize the company’s debts. If you have sufficient income, you may be able to reorganize your own household “business”, with a Chapter 13 Debt repayment plan.

Can you afford to file a Chapter 13 debt repayment plan?  Do you have at least $200 a month left over after regular expenses?  Then you may be able to mash all your debt into one payment you can afford, keep your vehicle, house and pension, and get an interest free repayment plan.
