Our Representation in Bankruptcy Filings involving Medical and Hospital Debt
To permanently rid yourself of certain types of debt, including medical and hospital bills, you must file your bankruptcy under Chapter 7. To qualify for protection under Chapter 7, you must submit to a “means test,” demonstrating to the bankruptcy court that you lack the means to repay your creditors over a 3-to-5-year period.
At Schlissel DeCorpo, we will carefully examine your financial situation to initial assess whether we believe you will be eligible to permanently discharge debts in Chapter 7. If so, we will handle all filings and documentation to complete the means test, and will be your advocate throughout the Chapter 7 proceeding.
