Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Maybe you have been injured and can not work, or lost a job because of the economy, or your investments have failed. If your financial health has passed the point where you just can not see a way to recover, then bankruptcy may be your only practical choice. The post 2005 Bankruptcy reform process is complex and unpleasant. Typically 50 pages of forms based on statistical data from your County and your personal financial situation are required for a simple bankruptcy filing. Advice from a skilled attorney is critical in moving the process forward while protecting your rights.
Do you know the law? Do you know how the law applies to the facts of your case? Do you know where to find the median income of people living in your County and the Federally mandated allowances for your County for everything from clothing to cars to food. Do you know when you can over-ride these criteria to qualify for bankruptcy protection, with acceptable justification, in preparing your petition to the Bankruptcy Court? All attorneys offering bankruptcy advice, or services, are considered by law a debt relief agency. Hence, we are a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code. We have the tools, knowledge, skill and ability to make the unpleasant experience of your going through the bankruptcy process efficient, effective and less stressful.
