By Noyes Law Office, P.C. |

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to discharge most, if not all, of your outstanding unsecured debts, such as credit card bills.

Will Missing Financial Records Hurt My Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Case?

By Noyes Law Office, P.C. |

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is designed to give Iowa debtors a “fresh start” by discharging their legal obligation to pay certain pre-bankruptcy debts.
