  Same day service usually available for emergency filings to stop lawsuits, wage garnishments & foreclosures.  

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.

Chapter 7              
Chapter 7 vs. 13  

While it is true that some taxes will not be discharged, others can be. Some federal taxes may be excepted from discharge if they are over 3 years old and meet all other criteria for discharge. Income taxes under three years old are usually not dischargeable in bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy Myths  

Debt Collection


Student loans are generally never dischargeable in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy but there are exceptions.  Unfortunately very few people qualify because the "undue hardship" provision of bankruptcy is reserved for extraordinary circumstances that are likely to continue for an extended period of time - not a short duration - such as a very serious illness or disability.  But there are alternatives such as forbearances, refinancing through Direct Loans, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
