Shreveport Lawyers for Life After Bankruptcy Matters

Believe it or not, the bankruptcy laws are there to help people. Specifically, they are designed to provide a way out when debt is ruining your life. Of course, there are consequences involved. But, the effects of filing for bankruptcy are not as bad as many people think.

The Cook Law Firm, APLC, handles a variety of bankruptcy and debt relief matters. We are dedicated to helping people get a fresh start after bankruptcy. We will sit down and discuss your options and explain the pros and cons to the various options based on your unique situation. Whether through Chapter 7, Chapter 13, or other options, we can help you get back on track.

Life After Bankruptcy — What to Expect

Bankruptcy has a bad reputation, laced with many myths and misconceptions. The reality is that bankruptcy provides relief to your financial distress. It could be within a few months with Chapter 7, or a few years if Chapter 13. Here are some other realities about the effects of bankruptcy:

  • You will have less debt (and in some cases, none at all).
  • Your credit rating will improve over time — at first it may go down, but for some, the rating actually improves as a result of the bankruptcy.
  • The bankruptcy will stay on your record for 7 to 10 years, depending on what type you file.
  • You will be able to get credit, buy a car or purchase a home, but it might take some time or you might have higher interest rates at first.

The most important thing is that you will be giving yourself a chance to restart and rebuild. You won't be harassed by creditors. You will be free.
