Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Brooklyn, IL - for as little as $675


Are dealing with an enormous amount of debt?  Are you trying as best you can to stay afloat?  Do you find yourself constantly trying to manage your bills (but not having enough to stay current)?  Have you recently had your wages garnished, or your bank levied, or a lawsuit filed against you by one of your creditors?  Has it reached a point at which your debts have been turned over to a collection agency?  Are you now trying to figure out your rights and options?


If your financial situation has reached a point at which you have no idea how you are going to pay for all your debts, then it is probably time to consider a Brooklyn, IL Chapter 7.  This type of filing will get rid of all your unsecured debts (such as credit cards, medical bills, payday loans, old gym memberships, overdrawn bank accounts, etc.).  And it will also stop any wage garnishments, bank levies, or lawsuits that have been filed against you by one of your creditors. 

Very often, however, people will decide to forgo bankruptcy.  They make this decision because they want to try as hard as they can to pay off their debts.  But most of the time, this entails making minimum monthly payments to your creditors.  A good example would be credit cards.  Monthly minimums on a credit card can be as low as $20.  But if you miss a payment (or if your cards are maxed out), then the monthly minimum can get very high indeed.  What’s worse, the vast majority of these monthly payments are going towards interest as opposed to principal.  This in turn puts you in a situation in which you are taking one step forward, and three steps back.

Brooklyn, IL is a city in Southern Illinois with a motto of “Founded by Chance, Sustained by Courage.”  Brooklyn, IL was initially formed by a group of former slaves who traveled from across the country.  The population of Brooklyn is approximately 750.

When you file for bankruptcy, the government describes it as a “fresh start / clean slate.”  In other words, it is a chance to start life fresh, move forward, and regain your financial footing.  It should not, therefore, be viewed as something to be ashamed of.  The number of people, famous and otherwise, who have filed for bankruptcy in our country is a virtual Who’s Who of movers and shakers in American business, education, and political history.  Bankruptcy is a chance to focus on the future, and to let go of the past.
