Practice Areas & Laws in Georgia

DebtStoppers is a Georgia bankruptcy law firm focused on supporting people in Atlanta who want to eliminate their debt and retake control over their financial situation. We help families find financial freedom through one of the two types of personal bankruptcy.

With Chapter 7, you can eliminate your debts by discharging them. While Georgia laws permit a court-appointed trustee to sell off some of your assets to repay your debts, our clients usually keep most — if not all — of their possessions.

Chapter 13 laws enable you to consolidate your debts into a 3-to-5-year repayment plan. Instead of discharging your obligations, you'll make reasonable monthly payments and receive total asset protection as long as you stick to the payment plan.

Regardless of the chapter you choose, DebtStoppers can guide you through each step of the process. Our accomplished Georgia lawyers have years of experience helping families like yours and can customize a plan to overcome your financial difficulties. Call or text us today at 678-673-2142 to request a complimentary debt analysis.

What Should I Know About Filing Bankruptcy in Georgia?

Even though the bankruptcy process was created under federal law, you should find a local lawyer to guide you. Each state has its own little quirks in interpreting the rules, so having a qualified Georgia attorney by your side is crucial. Our DebtStoppers lawyers have years of experience with Georgia laws and can lead you through the process.

Why Are So Many People Filing for Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy laws can be the key to setting you free from your debts. If your balances keep growing, and you keep falling deeper and deeper into debt, you might feel like you have no way out. You might feel stuck and like you'll always be trapped in your debts. When you feel imprisoned by your debts, the laws enable you to eliminate them and start over with a clean slate.

Bankruptcy lets you wipe out consumer debts, including:

  • IRS tax debts
  • Credit cards
  • Payday loans
  • Medical bills

The laws also offer the relief of an "automatic stay." The moment you file for bankruptcy, the court will issue a court order the requires your creditors to halt any collection activities they are pursuing on your debt.

The automatic stay stops and prevents:

  • Creditor harassment
  • Foreclosure
  • Repossession
  • Wage garnishment

Your creditors won't even be allowed to call you!
