If you decide to seek Bankruptcy relief, you can represent yourself, you can hire an attorney to represent you, or you can get help in some localities from a bankruptcy petition preparer who is not an attorney. The law requires an attorney or bankruptcy petition prepare to give you a written contract specifying what the attorney or bankruptcy petition preparer will do for you and how much it will cost. We know your worries and concerns relating to bankruptcy and approach your case with dignity and compassion. There are several factors that play into bankruptcy: unemployment, job loss, medical bills, unexpected emergencies, and divorce (to name a few). Sometimes, it just becomes too much; although, you may prefer to remedy your financial responsibilities on your own.

The following information helps you understand what must be done in a bankruptcy case to help you understand how much service is needed. Although bankruptcy can be complex, many cases are routine, and can be completed in a reasonable amount of time.
Most people will experience illness, divorce, foreclosure, or job loss during some time in their lives. Finding yourself in such a situation can be stressful because debt can build up quickly. This can put someone at a disadvantage when it comes to financial planning.
Bankruptcy allows people with large unmanageable debts to find some relief. At the same time creditors are also treated fairly during the bankruptcy process.
There are two types of bankruptcy: Chapter 7 and Chapter 13:
- Chapter 13 bankruptcy
Allows the debt owed to be paid back in a three to five year repayment plan. One keeps all their property but has to pay a certain monetary amount to the trustee. This is usually done by individuals with a steady wage or income.
- Chapter 7 bankruptcy
The debt that is owed can be reduced by agreeing that the trustee can take personal property and sell it to pay off the debt. There are some property that is exempt from being sold, or liquidated, in this way. State laws dictate how much they can take.
A skilled attorney can guide and ensure this process is done right.
