Chapter 7 Bankruptcy


Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows individuals, couples, and even businesses to discharge most if not all unsecured debt and takes approximately 90 to 120 days to complete.  Mansfield Law Corporation carefully analyzes your assets, obligations, income, and expenses to determine whether you can pass the income "means test" to file Chapter 7.  We analyze the best approach to your secured debts. If we believe it is the best option for you and we understand that the Court and lenders will allow you to do so, we work to ensure you can keep cars with loans or leases and homes subject to loans.  Mansfield Law Corporation prides itself on having its attorney work directly with clients and strives not hire appearance attorneys to represent you at your hearings.  We provide personal attention from start to finish.

Call us to learn more.


Chapter 13 Bankruptcy


Your income may allow you to make low interest or no interest payments to creditors over time.  The payment under a Chapter 13 plan is based on your ability to pay and not the size of your debt.  The best part is that you don't have to struggle to pay high interest and the balance of many of your debts is eliminated at the end of three or five years.  Chapter 13 allows homeowners with "underwater" second mortgages to remove those liens against their homes.  It allows repayment of taxes over time.  Chapter 13 plans also restore mortgages to current status while allowing homeowners to make payments on the missed payments over time.

We are focused on bankruptcy law. We design complex Chapter 13 plans to simplify your debt situation.

Call us today to design a Chapter 13 plan that makes your life easier and eliminates your debt.


Chapter 11 Reorganization


Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows us to use the full range of bankruptcy tools to solve your financial emergency and put your business or your personal financial life back on track. Chapter 11 provides for reorganization.  It involves your creditors and requires extensive negotiation and consultation with those creditors to reach a plan or vote on a plan that is right for your situation.  In Chapter 11, significant contracts and leases can be revised. Debt schedules can be modified.  Secured debts can be adjusted.  Some debts can even be reduced to asset value and paid over the life of the plan.

Not many local firms excel at Chapter 11 work.  We do.  Our firm is focused on bankruptcy law.
