Experienced Bankruptcy Attorneys Serving individuals and Families of Southeast Michigan
Each year more than 1,000,000 Americans file for protection under the federal bankruptcy laws, according to the American Bankruptcy Institute. Most of these people are average working families who try to pay all of their bills but find themselves in financial trouble. The sudden loss of a job, medical bills, a divorce, or even a natural disaster can quickly wipe out a life's savings. For many, bankruptcy provides a second financial chance.
Bankruptcy is usually used as a last resort, after other attempts to solve a financial crisis fail. Melder & Melder, P.C. is a debt relief agency and, among other services, provides legal assistance to people and businesses seeking relief under the United States Bankruptcy Code. Call our attorneys to find out if you really need to file bankruptcy, or if an agreement can be reached with your creditors.
The Basics of Michigan Bankruptcy Law
In its most basic form, bankruptcy law is a consumer protection law. It is a Federal process, which allows consumers to have their qualifying debts forgiven. The law recognizes that bad things sometimes happen to good people, and consumers sometimes simply do not have the ability to comply with creditor's repayment demands. Bankruptcy law is a unique type of law based on forgiveness rather than punishment.
Filing for bankruptcy puts into effect the "automatic stay," which stops creditors from trying to collect any debt from you. The automatic stay immediately stops creditor phone calls, collection letters, wage garnishments, creditor harassment, lawsuits, bank levies, and all other types of harassment, intimidation and scare tactics by creditors.
