Beyond Debt Relief - 8 Incredible Benefits of Bankruptcy

You are likely considering bankruptcy because you need relief from overwhelming debt. This includes immediate things like relief from collections and long-term relief from crushing debts that you simply cannot pay back no matter how long you had to do so. Bankruptcy provides both immediate and long-term debt relief.

Beyond the basic relief you expect, bankruptcy can provide same extraordinary benefits that you would never expect. In this blog post from your Lycoming County, Tioga County and Potter County bankruptcy lawyers, will give you details these unexpected benefits of Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy:

1. Undo Judgment Liens on Your Home

Through judgment lien “avoidance” you can often permanently remove a judgment lien.  This will allow you to sell or refinance your home without having to pay off the judgment.  

2. Get Back Your Driver’s License after an Unpaid Judgment

You can reinstate your license lost because you did not pay a debt from an uninsured or underinsured motor vehicle accident.

3. Reinstate Your Driver’s License from Failing to Pay Tickets

Reinstate your license when suspension is for unpaid traffic infractions.

4. Get Out of an Unaffordable Payment Plan with the IRS/State

Bankruptcy may allow you to deal with an IRS payment plan that you can not handle and provide other tax relief.

5. Prevent Debt Collections from Re-Starting after Being “Stayed”

Bankruptcy doesn’t just stop debt collection temporarily.   It will permanently deal with your debt.

6. Bankruptcy Can Often Reduce Some or All of a Tax Lien’s Financial Impact

In some situations, a tax lien can be made either wholly or partially ineffective. Besides saving you lots of money you get the peace of mind that your home is not at risk.

7. Avoid Paying Your Ex-Spouse Most of Your Property Settlement Debts

Chapter 13 allows you to discharge—write-off—some or all non-support obligations of your divorce.

8. Get Out of Your Vehicle Lease through Bankruptcy

If you want out of your lease – great news.  You can surrender the vehicle and be done with the monthly obligation.
