Helping You Regain Your Financial Footing And Relieve The Stress In Your Life

Financial problems negatively impact every facet of your life — your marriage, how you interact with your children, even how you feel about yourself. If you are faced with insurmountable debt, it is important to resolve the problem immediately in order to prevent it from permanently damaging these important relationships.

Bankruptcy provides you with an opportunity to reset your financial life. At Steele Law Offices, LLC, in Glen Carbon, Illinois, we guide clients through the Chapter 7 bankruptcy process. We begin by evaluating your overall financial situation and determine if filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the best solution.

Consumer credit counseling education is mandatory prior to filing for bankruptcy. The counseling education must be acquired through a government-approved nonprofit credit counseling agency.

Chapter 7 is what many people associate with filing for bankruptcy. As a debtor, your assets are sold, creditors receive payment and you are freed from your debts. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is often used by people who are unemployed or work jobs that leave them with little money to pay their bills each month.

You must qualify to file for bankruptcy, and the rules vary depending on the type of case you want to file. The Chapter 7 means test is a formula that is used to determine whether or not an individual has enough money to make minimal payments to creditors in a Chapter 13 plan.

We have provided legal representation for individuals in bankruptcy law and other areas for more than 20 years. Once our bankruptcy lawyer has reviewed your situation in an initial consultation, he will be able to tell you if Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the best solution. If not, he can provide you with other options and refer you to other specialists who can help.
