Grandmother Successfully Files for Bankruptcy to Better Care for Family

An unmarried woman in her mid-50s had incurred more debt that she could handle after her daughter could no longer support herself or her own daughter. Before the Cleveland bankruptcy attorneys with LHA were contacted, the woman was being sued on one of her credit card accounts and was bracing for the following scenario: 25% of her paycheck was about to be garnished – income she could not afford to do without.

Though our client tried to be a good mother by helping to take care of her family, it was at her own detriment. When the Cleveland bankruptcy attorneys with LHA were contacted, she was desperate for help. Despite getting a new job, the pay was not enough to repay her debt. The burden of that debt over time had built up to an overwhelming amount.

After reviewing her case and filling the correct paperwork, our Cleveland bankruptcy attorneys succeeded in filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy on her behalf – effectively erasing all her debts and allowing his client to move forward caring for her family at her new income level.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
