3 Tips to Help You File for Bankruptcy at Home

File for Bankruptcy at HomeFile for Bankruptcy at Home

It might surprise many people to learn that you can file for bankruptcy from home. Not only does this make filing safer and easier during the COVID-19 pandemic, but it also means that people who were home-bound prior to the outbreak are able to file.

What do you need to know if you are considering filing for bankruptcy from home?

1. Filing Bankruptcy from Home is Safe and Secure

The number one question bankruptcy lawyers receive when clients learn they can file from home is whether or not it’s safe to do so. Obviously, filing from home is safer when it comes to exposure to illness. But are you trading one risk for another?

Does filing for bankruptcy at home put sensitive financial data at risk in a cybersecurity breach?

The truth is filing from home is just as safe as filing conventionally. In some cases, your information is more secure because paper copies of your bankruptcy documents aren’t passing through the hands of so many people.

And if you aren’t convinced that it’s safe to file from home, we’ll work with you to ensure you have all of the digital protection you need. We’ll ensure the process goes smoothly and that your risk of filing electronically isn’t any greater than it would be if you were leaving your house.

2. You Still Need an Attorney If You File for Bankruptcy from Home

Filing from home is convenient. It removes a great deal of the burden of the filing process, but it doesn’t change the process entirely. You still need professional guidance and support, even when filing from home.

Any time you file for bankruptcy, no matter how you do it, you have obligations and responsibilities. These don’t change when you decide not to file in person.

An attorney helps you through the process, ensures everything you submit to the court is correct and completely, and is there to answer your questions every step of the way.

3. Filing from Home Removes a Lot of the Pressure and Intimidation of Bankruptcy

One of the best things about filing from home is that it alleviates some of the pressure you’re under when you file. In most cases, people’s concerns about filing are understandable but unwarranted. Cases run smoothly and there was no reason to worry. But this doesn’t mean there isn’t anxiety involved in the process of filing for bankruptcy when doing so conventionally.

At a time when you are already feeling the stress of unpaid bills and credit problems, you don’t need more anxiety.

Filing from home alleviates the usual worries that come with conventional filing. The process is as stress-free as possible.

Should You File for Bankruptcy from Home?

Filing for bankruptcy from home is more efficient and takes less time. Since all of the meetings are held via phone or online, the process is convenient. It also allows you to get things moving along as quickly as possible. It’s one of the best options you have if you are struggling financially.
