Are You Considering Bankruptcy?
Have you decided filing for bankruptcy is your best option, but you’re not sure if you need the help of a bankruptcy lawyer? You may feel somewhat hesitant to reach out, but you will benefit greatly from having a legal expert and advocate fighting on your behalf. Here are four reasons you should seek legal counsel.
Protect from Creditor Harassment
After hiring an attorney to handle your case, you won’t have to deal with harassment from creditors or collection agencies. You will be instructed on what type of creditor behaviors are considered abusive and be made aware of your rights.
Help Knowing Which Chapter to File
Do you need to file Chapter 7? Or does your situation require Chapter 13? A bankruptcy attorney can help make this determination. Their experience and expertise can help you find the best options for your situation.
Error-Free Petition and Paperwork
There is a lot of paperwork and a lot of filing as part of the bankruptcy process. Anything not filed or filled out correctly can complicate an already complex process. There are also many documents needed to accompany the application. Lawyers can help ensure all the paperwork is handled correctly and provide legal advice throughout the filing process.
Peace of Mind
You don’t have to worry about carrying the responsibility all by yourself. You can rest knowing it is all being handled properly with your best interest in mind. You’ll receive expert advice, guidance and support to help you through.
