Special Debt Situations

At Charles J. Schneider, P.C., our bankruptcy attorneys take the time to understand the special financial, family, employment, health or business issues you may be facing. We are committed to helping you get the maximum benefit the Bankruptcy Code provides. Our law office is conveniently located in Livonia, Michigan, and we serve clients throughout the Detroit metropolitan area.

The following pages describe special debt situations as they relate to bankruptcy:

  • Foreclosure: While most people facing foreclosure wish to keep their homes, there are others who are willing to accept a financial loss and move forward, particularly if their house is unaffordable. Whatever your goal may be, our lawyers can help.

  • Credit counseling and debt negotiation: It is important to explore other debt relief options before filing for bankruptcy. However, you must be very wary of credit counseling and debt consolidation deals that seem too good to be true.

  • Emergency bankruptcy filings: In some situations, it may be necessary to file a Chapter 7 or 13 case immediately in order to protect an important asset.

  • Wage garnishment: Filing bankruptcy will put an immediate stop to a wage garnishment, which can harm your ability to pay for necessities.

  • Government benefits and bankruptcy: Social Security, workers' compensation and other government benefits are fully protected in bankruptcy.

  • Employment rights: While there are laws protecting current employees from discrimination because of bankruptcy, employers sometimes ignore them.

  • Bankruptcy litigation and appeals: Our lawyers are fully qualified to handle contested bankruptcy cases and bankruptcy appeals. Attorney Charles J. Schneider has obtained three opinions in the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
