Helping You Move Beyond Medical And Credit Card Debt

People generally do not file bankruptcy because they are irresponsible spenders. Usually, a significant event occurs that overwhelms people with debt. These incidents are often serious medical scares that can quickly lead to incurring large amounts of credit card and medical debt that can feel insurmountable.

At Janvier Law Firm, PLLC, we have helped individuals in Raleigh navigate the bankruptcy process and get back their financial lives. Our established law firm brings more than 30 years of experience to your situation, providing you with the focused advice you need to help you move forward toward a debt-free life.

Discharging Medical And Credit Card Debt In Bankruptcy

Whether you file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can discharge both credit card debt and medical debt during bankruptcy. This is also true for any medical debt that you may have paid for by a credit card.

Our legal team will work closely with you to analyze your entire situation to help you determine which debts you may be able to discharge. We are dedicated to finding an outcome that reflects your best interests and places you in a stronger financial position.

  • Advising you on whether a civil action to collect a debt is invalid because it violates North Carolina’s statute of limitations
  • Assisting you in timely designating of your exempt property to prevent the sheriff from executing on your property to collect a judgment
  • Assisting you in continuing a foreclosure hearing and/or assisting you in developing a strategy in keeping your home
