Your New Year’s Financial Resolution



With the new year, our thoughts often turn to resolutions or ways we can improve our lives and increase our chance of catching the brass ring. Perhaps you’ve decided to lose weight, stop smoking or get more exercise. While you are thinking about your goals in those areas, consider also your financial health. Do you have a lot of debt clutter that needs to be discarded? Are there elements so toxic they threaten to destroy your financial life? Do you just need to get a fresh start? Consider how The Law Offices of Melanie Tavare, an experienced bankruptcy attorney in Oakland and Hayward, can help you organize your way to financial strength.

When to Seek the Assistance of a Bankruptcy Attorney.

  • Are creditors or collection agencies calling you?
  • Are you paying one credit card with another credit card?
  • Are you unable to pay more than the minimum payment each month?
  • Do you have unpaid medical debt you can not resolve?
  • Do you owe back taxes?
  • Are you being sued by a creditor?
  • Are you taking cash advances or using your credit cards to pay for necessities like groceries without paying off the card each month?
  • Is your home in foreclosure or is the repo man threatening to haul your car away?
  • Is financial stress eating at you and interfering with the rest of your life?

If you say “yes” to any of these questions, you could benefit from discussing your situation with a qualified bankruptcy attorney. Consumer bankruptcy attorneys work with clients who must manage many different personal financial issues. For some, perhaps a tax issue is the pressing concern; for others, defending a foreclosure or seeking a loan modification is the best answer; for many, a bankruptcy case might help solve a number of debt problems.

How Can an Experienced Bankruptcy Attorney Like the Law Offices of Melanie Tavare Help?

An experienced bankruptcy attorney can help answer questions like these to determine quickly the type of help that will benefit you most. For instance, you can learn:

  • Whether you could benefit from a debt management or debt settlement plan or neither;
  • When a Chapter 7 straight bankruptcy case can be the most efficient and cost effective route to financial freedom;
  • Whether bankruptcy can help clear up your tax problems (along with other debts), or whether an offer in compromise makes more sense;
  • What a Chapter 13 repayment plan case can do that a Chapter 7 cannot;  
  • If filing a bankruptcy will stop a lawsuit brought by a credit card company;
  • Whether a bankruptcy case is the best way to save your house from foreclosure or your car from repossession;
  • Whether a bankruptcy will stop a wage or bank account garnishment;
  • and the answers to many other questions.
