Filing for Bankruptcy in Wisconsin

Although it's not an easy decision to make, filing for bankruptcy can give you a fresh financial start. If you're facing the following scenarios, you may be considering solutions for debt relief:

  • Home foreclosure
  • Legal action from creditors and debt collectors
  • Repossession
  • Wage garnishment
  • Back taxes

The Wisconsin bankruptcy lawyers at Sigman Janssen are ready to discuss your options. Based on your income and outstanding expenses, we can determine what type of bankruptcy is right for you and walk you through the filing process. We have the resources to help our clients find financial relief through the following types of bankruptcy:

Chapter 7 — Filing for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 usually moves quickly. Many people are granted complete relief in as little as four months. In most cases, Chapter 7 can eliminate medical bills and credit card debt. Many people fear losing valued assets, but many assets are considered exempt under federal and Wisconsin state law.

Chapter 13 — Filing for bankruptcy under Chapter 13 reorganizes your debts into a three- to five-year payment plan. This allows debtors to pay off debts–and can prevent home foreclosure or loss of property–with a smaller, more manageable monthly payment.

Certain types of debt cannot be discharged under either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, including:

  • Child support
  • Alimony or maintenance
  • Student loans
  • Violation fines, such as traffic tickets
  • Income tax debts from within three years

Filing for bankruptcy can seem like a complicated process, but the Wisconsin attorneys at Sigman Janssen have the knowledge to guide you through every step. Contact us today, and let us put our experience to work for you.
