Why Do I Need a Bankruptcy Lawyer?
Some behaviors to avoid before filing for bankruptcy include:
- Maxing out your credit cards, especially on luxury or extravagant items
- Taking out payday loans
- Hiding assets
- Paying off loans from relatives and close friends
- Deciding not to file income taxes
- Withholding information on your bankruptcy petition or from your lawyer
- Making fraudulent statements on your bankruptcy petition
To their own detriment, many people engage in the above activities. A solid lawyer with experience in bankruptcy will advise you to bet truthful and thorough in every aspect of the process.
A Complete Petition
Working with a veteran bankruptcy lawyer will result in your petition being properly filled out and filed the first time. In order to complete your bankruptcy claim correctly, you must be specific, patient, and thorough. A smart and experienced bankruptcy attorney can facilitate this process for you.
Dealing with Creditors and the Trustee
Also, your attorney will act as the buffer and clear-minded, logical communicator with your creditors and your trustee. This is important, as your attorney has the opportunity to make sure that you go through your day-to-day routine without being interrupted by your creditors or distracted by the court. This will afford you peace of mind, which is extremely important when you are in such a situation. Plus, you’ll benefit from the services of an attorney who is totally committed to your welfare.
Planning for Your Future
Along with providing you with first-class legal services, a savvy bankruptcy attorney will work with you to plan your fiscal future. After someone files for and is granted bankruptcy, they can be totally overwhelmed by their feelings of loss and uncertainty. It is essential that you plan properly for your future and ensure your financial stability. Remember that bankruptcy signals a new beginning for you.
