Filing for Debt Relief in Nevada

If you are an individual filing for bankruptcy, the first thing you need to determine is what type of bankruptcy to file for. Typically, Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy are the most common and appropriate options.

The key differences between Chapters 7 and 13 are:

  • Chapter 7 discharges unsecured debts (credit card, medical, etc.).
  • Chapter 13 creates a repayment plan for some or all existing debt.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy can wipe the slate clean and eliminate all the debt that you and your spouse owe. However, many people are unsure whether to file before or after their divorce—or if they should file together or as individuals.

Ford & Friedman is a debt relief agency and our experienced, knowledgeable Henderson divorce lawyers can advise the best course of action in light of your unique financial circumstances. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code and can put our clients back on a positive financial trajectory following their divorce.
