Finding Freedom From Secured And Unsecured Debt
When in financial distress, sometimes people must choose between making a credit card payment and putting that money toward their mortgage payment. Most opt for the latter choice because they do not want to lose their home. This scenario illustrates the difference between secured and unsecured dent — secured debt is backed by some form of collateral, like a house, while unsecured debt, such as credit card debt, is not tied to any tangible object.
The attorneys at the Miami law office of Kingcade Garcia McMaken help clients analyze their finances and determine the best path to debt relief. While you may not care about paying your unsecured debt, it does not mean that the creditors won’t make every attempt to collect from you.
If you have a large amount of secured debt, Chapter 7 bankruptcy may be a good option for those who qualify, as it completely eliminates all of a debtor’s secured debt. However, if you do not qualify for Chapter 7 under the means test, Chapter 13 can also provide debt relief through a structured, customized repayment plan. Types of secured debt include:
- Mortgages/home loans and other real estate loans
- Cars, boats and other motor vehicles
