Why do I need a bankruptcy lawyer?

Filing for bankruptcy should not be viewed as taboo, but some still struggle with the idea that they need help with their overall financial situation. When the time comes for you to file bankruptcy, the question begs to be asked, do you need a bankruptcy attorney to help you file? We will explore this option in today's post.

If you decide to file bankruptcy without the help of an attorney, you could wind up experiencing any of the following:

  • Loss of your bankruptcy discharge, which clears out all of your debt
  • You might lose property that could have been kept
  • You might be accused of fraud or perjury
  • Your case could be dismissed multiple times for the improper filing of bankruptcy documents
  • You might need to make multiple appearances in front of the bankruptcy judge, causing you to miss a lot of time at work

When you decide that working with an experienced bankruptcy attorney is the best course of action, you will be helped with all of the following:

  • All of your paperwork will be filled out correctly, completely and filed appropriately
  • Every action required to file for bankruptcy is handled accordingly
  • You wind up filing for the right type of bankruptcy
  • You can protect your property under the law
  • You will correctly disclose what is required to the court

A bankruptcy attorney will be able to make the filing process easier and explain all of the nuances of how to file. Your questions can be answered easily and you will not have to deal with such a stressful time in your life by yourself.
