  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: This is known as Liquidation. However, it truly allows a “fresh start” by discharging your consumer debt. It is most frequently used for personal financial relief, and protection of assets. Most – if not all – of your debts are eliminated quickly, and you will usually keep all your assets and property. You must meet certain requirements and income restrictions to file Chapter 7, and in some instances there may be a liquidation of certain assets that are not protected by the asset exemptions that the bankruptcy law allows. Attorney LaPré knows how to best use those exemptions to your benefit. He will educate you about those exemptions, and how they work to protect your estate.
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: this is known as reorganization. Through his thorough knowledge of Chapter 13, Attorney LaPré will get some or most of your debt discharged, while not only protecting assets, but also doing certain other things within the parameters of Bankruptcy Law, such as sometimes being able to eliminate a second mortgage entirely, or reducing the interest and balance owed on auto loans. There are qualifiers built into the law that provide for these benefits of Bankruptcy Law, and Jack LaPré knows when they will apply and will inform you. With a court-approved debt repayment plan, Chapter 13 stops foreclosure, repossession and creditor harassment, and helps you reorganize the debts in a way that better meets your income and your family needs.

There are numerous reasons for debt problems, including: illness and medical expenses, loss of a job, divorce, and difficult economic times. With over thirty years of experience Jack LaPré knows how to explain your choices and options clearly and thoughtfully. You will feel relieved and more knowledgeable about your rights after your very first consultation with Attorney LaPré.
