New York City Bankruptcy Lawyer
Financial issues come upon us as individuals and business owners that sometimes we are unable to cope with on our own. A job loss, a serious illness, divorce, a severe economic downturn, or the arrival of a global pandemic forcing a shutdown of local businesses – any financial emergency, whether sudden and unexpected or slow in coming, can place financial obligations beyond the reach of the debtor to repay without help. Help is available, though, through bankruptcy protection. A bankruptcy filing provides immediate relief in the form of an automatic stay on collection activities. While under protection from creditors, debtors have the breathing room to form a plan to deal with their debt. Individuals, households, small businesses and major corporations all emerge from bankruptcy free of debt or with a lighter debt load, back in control of their finances and ready to move on without the constant stress and worry unmanageable debt can bring.
