Maryland bankruptcy protection allows you to repay or discharge (i.e. you do not have to repay) all or a portion of your debts. Our Maryland bankruptcy lawyers protect people and their assets through:

  • Chapter 7 Maryland bankruptcy
  • Chapter 13 Maryland bankruptcy
  • Chapter 11 Maryland bankruptcy

Depending on your circumstances and whether you file for Chapter 7, Chapter 13 or Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, some remedies that our Maryland bankruptcy lawyers can provide to our clients are:

  • remove a second and/or third loan from a home altogether such that you only have to continue paying on your first mortgage;
  • reduce your monthly mortgage payments;
  • reduce car payments or extend the length of your car loan;
  • reduce the overall loan amount and/or reduce the interest rate on your car loan;
  • regain the possession of a vehicle that has already been repossessed by your lender (prior to its auction sale) so that you can drive it again;
  • discharge all of your debts so that you will not need to repay any of your current debts anymore;
  • provide you with more time to slowly repay your past due amounts on your home loan, over as much as 5 years while you still own and live in your home; and/or
  • discharge old income tax debts that you just cannot repay.
