Woodland is in a town located in Clark and Cowlitz Counties. However, most of its 5500 residents live in Cowlitz County. The town was named by its first merchant and postmaster for its wooded setting.
Woodland has about 1,965 households and 1,398 families. A little over 40 percent of the households have children under the age of 18. Woodland is also home to the longest running civic community festival in Washington, Planter’s Day. This day is dedicating to celebrating the completed construction of dikes along the Lewis and Columbia Rivers, which prevent the annual flooding in the Woodland area.
Bankruptcy in Woodland
In Woodland as in other town in the United States, people can suffer financial hardship. Although one may have a job that pays well, debts do add up. A person may run into temporary misfortunate – such as the loss of a job or a large medical bill – that can contribute to financial downfall.
However, there are avenues of recovering from large debts and financial issues. Filing for bankruptcy is a way to get one’s debts cancelled or to find some flexibility in paying those debts back. Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy filings are two ways to assist a person in getting out of debt and getting back on track to rebuilding his or her credit and reputation within the community.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
A Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows most of one’s debts to be cancelled unless the debts a person has are outside of the purview of Chapter 7. Additionally, any debt that must be paid back can be paid through the sale of non-exempt assets or property.
The good news is that most property or assets are exempt, so a person filing for a Chapter 7 can keep most of his or her property.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is different from a Chapter 7 in that one does not have to sell his or her property to repay their debt. Instead, one can propose a repayment plan to the bankruptcy court. This repayment plan is a way of paying back all or a portion of the debts the individual has.
