There is a great deal of confusion among the general population as to what bankruptcy is, how it works and who is eligible.

Bankruptcy is a federally guaranteed measure that allows individuals to eliminate debt or reorganize it and pay it off over a manageable period of time. Bankruptcy allows you to discharge unsecured debts related to loans, credit card bills and medical care bills, to give just a few examples. In some cases, it may even be possible to discharge student loan or tax debt. With offices in Toms River and Neptune City, we file bankruptcy for individuals and businesses in Monmouth and Ocean counties and throughout New Jersey.

There are many types of bankruptcy:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy: Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the simplest and fastest way to get rid of debt.

  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy: If you earn too much be eligible for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, or if you have assets you would lose by filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the best choice for you.

  • Chapter 11 bankruptcy: Chapter 11 bankruptcy offers business owners a way to hold off creditors while reorganizing their operations for future success.
