Metairie, New Orleans, Covington, Mandeville, LaPlace, Slidell- Bankruptcy
Lawyers / Civil
Financial times are tough for everyone right now. And for many of us, overwhelming
debt, family expenses, unexpected medical bills coupled with the loss
or reduction in household income can make paying the monthly bills an
impossible task. Eventually, the stress of checking your own mail box
or even answering your own phone can become too much stress to bear. In
the end, some creditors may seek repossession of your property, foreclosure
on your home and/or garnishment of your wages.
Fortunately, our government has long recognized the need to help people
like you and the US Bankruptcy laws exist for the sole purpose of affording
financial relief to those in your situation by providing a fresh financial
start. As a federally designated debt relief agency, the experienced attorneys
at Bacchus Law Group, LLC can help you file for bankruptcy protection.

The Importance of a Bankruptcy Consultation
Many people are very misinformed about what Bankruptcy really is and what
it can do for them. Despite the media hype surrounding the bankruptcy
reform of 2005 or the irrational stigma attached to Bankruptcy, most people
still benefit greatly from the filing of a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
A consultation tailored to your specific financial situation with an experienced
attorney of Bacchus Law Group, LLC may save you thousands of dollars,
your home, your car and more importantly, your sanity.
The attorneys of Bacchus Law Group, LLC meet with Louisiana citizens every
day who leave our offices surprised to learn that they can eliminate their
debt and, in most cases, still keep their home, car and personal possessions.
Even if a Chapter 13 repayment plan is the right option for you, many
people are surprised to know that you can still obtain a discharge of
some, if not all, of your unsecured debt.
Bankruptcy is never anyone's first choice, but for many of us, it is
both the only choice and the right choice. If you truly a desire a fresh
financial start, schedule an appointment today with an experienced bankruptcy
attorney at Bacchus Law Group, LLC. If you already know that you would
like to file bankruptcy and want us to get started on your case directly
after the consultation, please download, print and fully complete the attached
Bankruptcy Questionnaire and
Required Document List.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is that portion of the Bankruptcy code which affords
debtors the opportunity to eliminate most, if not all, of their unsecured
debt. And in many cases, you can retain your home, car and personal belongings.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is that portion of the Bankruptcy code which affords
debtors the opportunity to repay all, or a portion, of their debts over
a period of time. The majority of debtors interested in a Chapter 13 plan
are those who are late on their mortgage and/or car payments but want
to keep those assets and need time to catch up. The advantage of a Chapter
13 is that an "automatic stay" will prevent creditors from further
contacting you and it will cease foreclosure, repossession and any garnishments.
Again, even if you file under Chapter 13, you can still obtain a discharge
of some, if not most, of your unsecured debt. For more information and
frequently asked question about Chapter 13, click
Credit Counseling/Debtor Education Requirement
Under the new Bankruptcy laws, debtors are now required to take a pre-filing
credit counseling course AND a post-filing debtor education course. But
don't fret, Bacchus Law Group, LLC utilizes the convenient services
of an internet based course to allow you the convenience of doing so from
your home. Please see
Summit Financial Education to get started. Also, we recommend that you purchase both courses together
in order to save you money.
