Eliminating Credit Card Debt Through Bankruptcy
Credit card debt, like other types of unsecured debt, can be completely eliminated through Chapter 7 bankruptcy. If you do not qualify for Chapter 7 or it is not in your best interests, you may also seek credit card debt relief by filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Credit card debt is sometimes referred to as “zombie debt,” because it never seems to go away. Debt collection services often buy old credit card debt accounts for pennies on the dollar, then go after the debtor seeking the full value of the debt. If they obtain a judgment against you, even if the debt is from years ago, they can garnish your wages, seize money from your bank account and take other legal action against you. Filing for bankruptcy not only stops them from doing so, but can also resolve your underlying debt problems.
