Get answers on how to eliminate debt and stop creditor harassment

When you are unable to keep up with your bills and see no way out, attorneys Cox & Sanchez counsel you about your options for eliminating your debts.  Our bankruptcy law firm helps you decide if Chapter 7 in St. Petersburg or Florida is right for you.


A Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to be relieved of certain debts when you receive your discharge:

  • Credit card balances
  • Medical bills
  • Personal loans
  • Foreclosure deficiencies
  • Repossessions
  • Certain IRS debts
  • Threats of repossession
  • Garnishments
  • Judgments

When your Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition is accepted, the court assigns a bankruptcy trustee to marshal your assets and pay your creditors. However, in most Chapter 7 bankruptcies, your property is exempt, so you can keep your house. There are numerous exempt assets that both Florida bankruptcy law and federal bankruptcy law allow you to keep.  These exemptions are complex and the bankruptcy attorneys at Cox & Sanchez help you understand which ones apply to you.
