Understand Your Options!

If your Debts are like water coming in your boat faster than it is going out, Bankruptcy may be the answer.

Bankruptcy Filing Time Limitations etc Filing bankruptcy often involves the needless emotions of fear, shame, blame or guilt. These emotions do not mean filing bankruptcy is not right and what you need to do. Often, bankruptcy is the only way to get your life back on track on a budget you can afford. Read More

Events like fire, flood, and disasters happen. Even the best people can find themselves unable to cover their mortgage payments. If you miss mortgage payments for two months or longer you go into foreclosure. With a foreclosure you face a simple financial decision to keep it or let it go back. We help you properly go down one of two paths. Read More

A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy can do everything a Chapter 7 can – only better. Chapter 13 has more tools to deal with a wider variety of problems a Chapter 7 can’t solve. A Chapter 13 can ensure a mortgage is caught up over time. It may be you can’t qualify for chapter 7 yet. Perhaps you filed another Chapter 7 less than eight years ago. A Chapter 13 can manage or cure a defaulted secured debt. Read More

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is quick and inexpensive – the process is over in just about four months, and no payments are made to the court. You don’t have to turn in an annual budget or ask permission later to sell or buy property. But there are other reasons to choose chapter 7. Read More

How to File Bankruptcy Without Losing Your Home

In over 30 years, almost every person who came to my office recognized their family was more important than bank profits and emotions. That hasn’t changed. The mistake most people make is in waiting too long before they talk to an attorney. They fail to plan their bankruptcy and learn the basic rules. People transfer assets improperly and lose it. They mortgage or spend assets they could have kept. Debtors will often cash in retirement and savings to repay unsecured debts but end up filing bankruptcy anyway. Do not mortgage or lose a home because of non-expert advice from a friend, relative or accountant. If you plan properly you may come out of bankruptcy more profitable or with more equity than when you start. For people who plan first, I wrote this book for you.

Nick C. Thompson

Louisville’s Bankruptcy Attorney who

wrote the book on how to file bankruptcy!

I have over 30 years of experience and have filed between 3,000 and 4,000 Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 cases, besides the foreclosure cases. I studied tax, accounting, and engineering. I am not a CPA, but I had the training and sat for the CPA exam and ran an accounting division of an oil company. I decided not to enter accounting as a profession. I am a lawyer by nature, and mathematics is more of a hobby. I have written manuals and produced audios and videos on how to file Bankruptcy and defend foreclosure cases. I have taught Bankruptcy to other attorneys in continuing legal education seminars, and I am a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA) and American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI).
