When debtors cannot reasonably pay off their debts it is time to consider Chapter 7 bankruptcy.  It becomes crucial when creditors begin to implement wage garnishments, file law suits against you, and start the process of repossession of your vehicles and property.  The bankruptcy filing must be done correctly though or the bankruptcy court may throw it out.  When that happens, the court makes you wait 180 days to re-file.  This can be disastrous if wages are being taken to satisfy debts and repossessions are occurring.  Therefore, it is urged that debtors needing assistance contact a chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyer in Tucson that is skilled at discharging debt through filing for chapter 7 bankruptcy protection.
