Bankruptcy can help many people who are facing lawsuits, wage garnishments, bank account levy or only making minimum payments on their debts. There is a common misconception that a person must be destitute to qualify for bankruptcy relief these days. But, it is often people with regular income who are making minimum monthly payments on their debts who can benefit most from a bankruptcy filing. See a list of Bankruptcy Indicators.
Filing for bankruptcy is a serious legal proceeding that can severely affect your financial life and overall well being. People forget it’s an actual legal proceeding with a judge and courtroom assigned to each and every case and and mistakenly think it’s ok to take a chance on their attorney, but you shouldn’t compromise on representation in any legal proceeding.
Technically, any attorney could handle your case, but it is not a good idea just to get any lawyer to represent you in legal court proceedings. You should make sure you are represented in court with someone who can successfully advocate on your behalf in a legal process.
Schedule an Appointment for your Confidential Consultion. We will provide you with a questionnaire and a list of documents and information we will need for your consult and to file your bankruptcy. Typically, the documents needed fall into the following categories: (1) income (pay statements, income taxes, bank statements, etc.); (2) expenses; (3) assets; and (4) debt (invoices, statements, bills, collection letters, lawsuits, etc.).
