Dissolves Most Unsecured Debt

Unsecured debt is debt incurred without a promise to return purchased property.  Examples of unsecured debt includes credit cards, utility bills, medical bills and service contracts.  Bankruptcy attorneys often include a list of unsecured debt when filing bankruptcy on your behalf.  Most unsecured debt will be wiped out depending on the type of bankruptcy filed.

Eliminates Responsibility for Secured Debt

A bankruptcy lawyer may list secured debt in your bankruptcy filings.  Secured debt is debt with collateral attached, such as a home, automobile, boat, etc.  While filing bankruptcy may wipe out some secured debt, you will be required to return the property attached to it.
