Talk to an Omaha Bankruptcy Lawyer to Discuss your Alternative Debt Relief Solutions
Many Nebraska residents need a fresh financial start, but may think bankruptcy is not an option for them. Even if you own a home, a car, and have a job, this is simply not the case. Nebraska bankruptcy attorney Burke Smith has helped residents of Omaha, Lincoln and greater Nebraska obtain financial freedom while keeping all of their possession. Each case is unique and results cannot be guaranteed, but you owe it to yourself to talk to an experienced bankruptcy attorney.
It is common for people with a steady income to think they are not eligible to file bankruptcy. Many Nebraska residents, with a good income but excessive debt, are able to gain financial freedom through a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. This process helps you to get out of debt, typically for an amount substantially less than if you paid your creditors directly. If you feel you can’t make progress against your debt or you are behind on your mortgage and are threatened with foreclosure, contact our Omaha bankruptcy lawyers today.
Debt collectors may attempt to exploit you and make you feel as though you must pay them. That is rarely, if ever, the case. Federal law protects consumers from being harassed, abused, or deceived by debt collectors. As experienced Nebraska bankruptcy attorneys, we will enforce your rights and handle your debt collectors for you.
Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy allow individuals a number of exemptions. This means that you can keep certain items free and clear, without the value of the exempt item counting towards the amount you owe creditors. An important part of what we do is analyzing the property our clients own and determining the maximum amount and type of exemptions that they are entitled to under the law. Attorney Burke Smith and his associate Dana Ulrich have extensive experience in calculating and maximizing the exemptions claimed by their clients.
If you’re behind on your mortgage payments and are worried about keeping your home or stopping a foreclosure, filing a chapter 13 bankruptcy may offer you the protection you need.
