Laws and Practice Areas in Illinois

DebtStoppers is an Illinois asset protection law firm committed to helping people in Chicagoland get out of debt and take back control of their finances (and their lives!) Every day, we help people who are in over their heads file for relief through Chapters 7 and 13 of the bankruptcy laws.

Chapter 7 enables you to wipe out or "discharge" your debts. Technically, the laws allow for the liquidation of your assets to pay back creditors, but this hardly ever happens.

Chapter 13, on the other hand, is a repayment plan. It allows you to restructure your debts and pay them back over 3 to 5 years through reasonable monthly payments. You never lose any property with Chapter 13.

No matter what type you file, DebtStoppers can help you along every step of the way. We have years of experience assisting people like you, and our skilled Illinois attorneys can develop a custom plan to overcome whatever financial hardship you are facing. Call or text us today at 312-913-0630 to schedule a no-cost personal economic evaluation.

Reasons to File for Bankruptcy and How DebtStoppers Can Help

Bankruptcy laws can be your path to financial freedom. When your bills keep piling up, and you keep slipping further and further into debt, it can feel like there is no way out. If you are overwhelmed by the amount of debt you have, the laws allow you to wipe it out and start fresh.

Through bankruptcy, you can eliminate:

  • Unpaid parking tickets
  • Camera
  • Payday loans
  • Credit cards
  • IRS tax obligations
  • Medical bills
  • And more!

Another way bankruptcy laws can provide relief is through an "automatic stay." As soon as you file your petition, the court will order your creditors to IMMEDIATELY stop any and all collection activity on your debts.

This means you won't have to deal with any more creditor harassment. And even if your creditors have initiated foreclosure, repossession, or wage garnishment, the minute the court issues the automatic stay, they have to STOP! They won't even be allowed to call you.

DebtStoppers has made it our mission to help people like you wipe out their debts and start to flourish again. Call or text us today at 312-913-0630 to schedule a free consultation with one of our qualified Illinois lawyers. We can help you get your finances back on track!
