Many of us are suffering with our finances during the pandemic. In this workshop, we will explore solutions to financial problems, including the different procedures for starting the bankruptcy process. We are going to discuss the conditions required to apply each of the following chapters 7, 11, and 13 concerning bankruptcy laws. We will also teach options for avoiding bankruptcy and what to do when filing for bankruptcy is not an option.
Situations that we are going to focus on:
1. What is the difference between a Chapter 7, Chapter 11, or Chapter 13 bankruptcy? How are they different?
2. How does bankruptcy affect my credit score? How can I get my score back quickly?
3. What happens if I do not qualify for bankruptcy? What options do I have besides bankruptcy?
