Bankruptcy And Job Loss

Guiding You To A Better Future

A period of unemployment can be a discouraging time, and with little or no income coming in, your debts become unmanageable. However, help is available through the bankruptcy system. Many debts can be reduced significantly or completely eliminated by filing bankruptcy. The extra cash flow you receive can make a significant difference in your life. You can get a fresh start and look forward to a future that is free from out-of-control debts.

Protecting Your Property And Unemployment Benefits

Many people filing Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy are able to keep all of their property. Certain types of assets, including 401(k) and IRA accounts are completely exempt, meaning that creditors cannot touch them. Unemployment benefits are exempt as well. Paul Camarena will take full advantage of the various bankruptcy exemptions in order to protect as much of your property as possible.

What Will Potential Employers Think?

Many unemployed people worry about the effect a bankruptcy filing will have on their reputations and their job prospects. While some employers do conduct background checks on job applicants in the final stages of the hiring process, discriminating against a job applicant on the basis of bankruptcy is against the law. Besides, bankruptcy no longer carries the stigma it once did. Many of America's most successful and high-profile business people have filed bankruptcy and then gone on to make their fortunes.
