Illinois Bankruptcy Lawyer FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions About Bankruptcy

What is bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is a process that is used under the law to help those struggling with debt to reentering into a controllable financial situation once more. It allows cumbersome, unmanageable debt to either be discharged or restructured so that the person in question can move forward with their life once more.

Can every kind of debt be discharged?

There are many different kinds of debts. Some kinds of debts are eligible for discharge and will be the key focus as Attorney Daniel S. Khwaja represents you in your Bankruptcy. Unfortunately, not every single debt you have incurred will be able to be discharged. Debts such as those owed to government agencies, those owed for spousal and child support, those for court judgments in personal injury cases, and those racked up after the bankruptcy was filed will not be eligible to be discharged. Illinois Bankruptcy Lawyer Daniel S. Khwaja will review your various types of debt and advise you on which are eligible for discharge in your own personal situation.

Will I lose everything I own if I file for bankruptcy?

This is a common bankruptcy myth that is not true at all. You will not be left at the end of the process with a cardboard box or forced to start from scratch. State laws vary on what is exempt from bankruptcy, but these can include jewelry, heirlooms, industry tools, as well as cars and homes up to a certain value.

Am I limited to filing for bankruptcy once in my lifetime?

You are not limited to one bankruptcy filing, however, depending on the bankruptcy type or "chapter" you filed, there are certain waiting periods that must be observed.
