Civil Litigation, Criminal Law, Bankruptcy, Probate
Bankruptcy has developed a negative stigma, but the reality is that many ordinary citizens find themselves with more debt than income and need to file bankruptcy. Skinner & Associates believes this solution is a last resort—if you feel trapped by debt, we can help, finding alternative solutions for many people. Designed to exchange all your debt for all your assets, the different chapters allow you to keep some money in the bank along with various personal items and equity in your home, car, and etc. The city of Columbus alone experiences almost 16,000 cases a year, so you are definitely not alone! While there are numerous chapters of bankruptcy, Chapters 7 and 13 are most common. A Chapter 7 can be over in as little as 3 months, while Chapter 13 takes longer to pay off. Not all debts can be discharged, however. To discuss all the options you have for repaying and eliminating your debt, contact our law firm in Reynoldsburg or Westerville.
