Know Your Rights Before You Act
One of the most common misconceptions when it comes to bankruptcy is that most people aren’t eligible when, in fact, most people with serious debt problems are actually able to file under Chapters 7 or 13. It is important to keep in mind, however, that working with an experienced and courteous Florida bankruptcy lawyer can make all the difference.

What are some benefits of filing for bankruptcy?
• Your debts such as credit card debt are “discharged” (removed)
• Your home, car and certain other property can’t be taken to pay creditors
• You can eliminate or modify “secured debt” like a mortgage or car loan
• Chapter 13 bankruptcy may save you interest charges on unpaid tax bills
What are some disadvantages to filing for bankruptcy?
• Nonexempt property (heirlooms and vacations homes) could be liquidated or sold to pay off creditors
• It will remain on your credit history for 10 years and will become public record
