Step-by-Step Through the Bankruptcy Process
The constant credit collection phone calls and letters can make an already
stressful financial situation extremely taxing. When an individual files
a bankruptcy action with the courts, their creditors must stop all attempts
at collecting debt payments. So how do you get to this point? The first step of the process is to decide which type of bankruptcy is
right for you.
Our firm can guide you through:
If you want to take control of your financial situation, our Palm Beach
bankruptcy attorney is here to discuss the different options available
in your case. After meeting with us and deciding what chapter to file
under, we walk you through all the paperwork and help you ensure all information
is accurate and up-to-date before presenting it to the bankruptcy court.
Once filed, an automatic stay will go into place to stop your creditors
and debt collectors from taking any more action.
Usually a client only appears only once in court when they file for
Chapter 7 bankruptcy. When filing under
Chapter 13, it may require more than one appearance in court, as a specific repayment
plan must be crafted and official approved before moving forward. In addition,
a trustee must be appointed in both cases to administer the sale of assets
and repayment of creditors.
