Florida Bankruptcy Services is a Chapter 7 bankruptcy preparation service.  We are located in Gulfport, Florida (next to Saint Petersburg) and have been in business for 15+ years. 

 
 
         
 

Our fees are set by the bankruptcy court - $200.00.

         
 

We come highly recommended by our clients, trustees, local attorneys, and our local legal aid office. Why?  All the chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcies we prepare are straight up by the book and you wouldn't want it any other way. 

 
 
 
         
 

If you live in the Tampa Bay area (Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk, Manatee, or Hernando county) it would be our pleasure to help you get you out of debt.

 
 
 

 

     
 

We see clients by appointment only because filing bankruptcy is a private matter that should not be shared.

You have the right to ask for a credit score.  Credit scores are numerical summaries of your credit-worthiness based on information from credit bureaus. You may request a credit score from consumer reporting agencies that create scores or distribute scores used in residential real property loans, but you will have to pay for it. In some mortgage transactions, you will receive credit score information for free from the mortgage lender.

Our Hours  

You have the right to dispute incomplete or inaccurate information.  If you identify information in your file that is incomplete or inaccurate, and report it to the consumer reporting agency, the agency must investigate unless your dispute is frivolous.

Monday thru Friday  
9:00 am thru 5:00 pm  
               
Note:  our hours are flexible.  

Consumer reporting agencies must correct or delete inaccurate, incomplete, or unverifiable information.  Inaccurate, incomplete or unverifiable information must be removed or corrected, usually within 30 days. However, a consumer reporting agency may continue to report information it has verified as accurate.  Consumer reporting agencies may not report outdated negative information.

In most cases, a consumer reporting agency may not report negative information that is more than seven years old, or bankruptcies that are more than 10 years old.

       
                   
       

Access to your file is limited.  A consumer reporting agency may provide information about you only to people with a valid need  usually to consider an application with a creditor, insurer, employer, landlord, or other business. The FCRA specifies those with a valid need for access.

       
       
                   
       

You must give your consent for reports to be provided to employers.  A consumer reporting agency may not give out information about you to your employer, or a potential employer, without your written consent given to the employer. Written consent generally is not required in the trucking industry.

       
       
       
                   
       

You may limit “prescreened” offers of credit and insurance you get based on information in your credit report.  Unsolicited “prescreened” offers for credit and insurance must include a toll-free phone number you can call if you choose to remove your name and address from the lists these offers are based on. You may opt-out with the nationwide credit bureaus at 1-888-5-OPTOUT (1-888-567-8688).

       
       
       
       
                   
       

You may seek damages from violators.  If a consumer reporting agency, or, in some cases, a user of consumer reports or a furnisher of information to a consumer reporting agency violates the FCRA, you may be able to sue in state or federal court.
