Our new website is designed to provide accurate and helpful information to people who may be considering filing bankruptcy under the United States Bankruptcy Code.
Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) January 16, 2012
Raleigh Bankruptcy lawyer Damon Chetson announced today that his firm has launched a new and expanded website focusing on bankruptcy issues for people living in Raleigh, Cary, Apex and the rest of North Carolina.
Since the economic downturn in 2008, the United States has witnessed a record number of bankruptcy filings, said Mr. Chetson. The weak economic recovery means that people are still considering bankruptcy as an option to help them escape from mountains of debt.
"Our new website is designed to provide accurate and helpful information to people who may be considering filing bankruptcy under the United States Bankruptcy Code," said Mr. Chetson. "Even if you decide not to file, we hope the information provided at least helps you understand your options."
Most individuals file for bankruptcy under Chapter 7, also known as liquidation bankruptcy, or Chapter 13 where they pay back some of the debt owed under a bankruptcy plan.
"Bankruptcy can eliminate all or some dischargeable debt," adds Raleigh criminal lawyer Damon Chetson. "Bankruptcy is one of the few ways to potentially stop foreclosure and save your home."
The new website also features a quick bankruptcy calculator that allows visitors to see whether bankruptcy might be a viable option.
"Filing a bankruptcy petition is not something that should be taken lightly," said Mr. Chetson, a Raleigh criminal lawyer. "If you wish to file bankruptcy, you should consider consulting with a bankruptcy attorney about your financial situation."
With explanations on how to defend against abusive debt collectors, how bankruptcy affects student debt, tax liens, and secured debt, how to get a copy of your free credit report, and how you can potentially save your home, the website seeks to provide a comprehensive resource for people facing financial difficulties.
