At Lentz Law, our qualified Nebraska bankruptcy attorneys can assist businesses and individuals with:
- Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Individuals and businesses may qualify to liquidate non-exempt assets in exchange for a discharge of unsecured debts.
- Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. Partnerships, corporations, and other types of business entities can use this type of bankruptcy to operate normally while they reorganize their debts and obligations.
- Chapter 12 Bankruptcy. Family farmers can use this type of bankruptcy to reorganize their operation.
- Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. If you wish to avoid liquidation, this type of bankruptcy allows you to keep your assets and commit to a payment plan designed to repay debts over several years.
- Foreclosure. Bankruptcy can stop the foreclosure process and save your home if you file before a trustee sale has taken place.
- Wage Garnishments. Bankruptcy’s automatic stay can put a stop to wage garnishments, and you may be able to recover some of what was taken from your paycheck.

How To File Emergency Bankruptcy
Are you experiencing incoming foreclosure, wage garnishment, or threats from debt collectors? If you qualify, an emergency filing, also known as a “skeleton filing,” may help. An emergency filing is essentially the same as filing for bankruptcy, but without completing all of the filing forms at the time of filing.
Filing an emergency bankruptcy activates the automatic stay immediately just like when an individual files a regular bankruptcy filing. Foreclosure will be stopped or delayed and attempts to collect your debt will cease. What happens next? You have 14 days to complete the rest of your bankruptcy paperwork. Failure to submit the rest of your petition on time will result in the dismissal of your case.
Keep in mind that although emergency bankruptcy sounds convenient, it may not always be the best option, especially if your debts or your financial situation is complicated. To be sure if this option will work best for you, reach out to an emergency bankruptcy attorney at Lentz Law, PC, LLO -- your initial consultation is free!
