Bankruptcy can be a daunting process, whether you're filing as an individual or for a business. Filing bankruptcy without the help of an attorney can be even more confusing and stressful, and mistakes can be costly. Local bankruptcy attorneys can provide you with legal advice about the different types of bankruptcy, whether it's a Chapter 7, Chapter 11 or even a Chapter 13, and how they might apply to your situation. Bankruptcy attorneys can also help you with all of the required filings and represent you in court.
No two bankruptcies are the same. Your debt load, ownership of exempt and nonexempt assets and your income all affect how you will file your bankruptcy case and its outcome. In some cases, you may need to agree to a long-term repayment plan. In other cases, you may get a fresh start. In either case, bankruptcy may help you protect your property and assets.
If you are not sure if bankruptcy is right for you, discuss your situation with local bankruptcy attorneys and determine if bankruptcy can give you the relief you need. While bankruptcy may be a last-resort, having a bankruptcy attorney negotiate with creditors on your behalf may help creditors understand the seriousness of your situation and to ensure that any agreements reached are properly documented and enforceable. For legal advice specific to your situation, simply fill out the request form and local attorneys will contact you shortly.
