BRIDGING YOU TO A BRIGHTER FUTURE

Is Your Bankruptcy Attorney a Miracle Worker?

Working with a bankruptcy attorney is essential. You could file on your own, but it’s the last thing you want to do. If you’ve struggle to manage your finances or you’re dealing with unexpected life circumstances that led to your bankruptcy, you don’t need to stretch yourself too thin by also taking on a bankruptcy.

A qualified bankruptcy attorney can take over and ensure that everything that needs to happen to build a better financial future gets down in a timely and proper manner.

A good bankruptcy attorney is able to handle even the most complicated case. To the average person, especially one who has never been through bankruptcy, this magic performed by a bankruptcy attorney might even make him or her seem like a miracle worker.

Bankruptcy Attorneys are Experts at Filing

There’s a lot that goes into filing for bankruptcy. You need to work with someone who understands the bankruptcy code, local bankruptcy laws, and how the bankruptcy court works. Having someone in your corner who knows how to protect your assets and manage your creditors is an essential part of bankruptcy success.

To view some of the forms you’ll need to complete when you file for bankruptcy, check out this list from Nolo.com.

Presenting Your Bankruptcy Case

In addition to all of the preparation and behind-the-scenes work your bankruptcy attorney does, he or she will also present your case to the trustee and everyone else involved. This begins at the 341 Meeting of Creditors.

The 341 Meeting of Creditors is often the most intimating part of filing for bankruptcy. Your attorney will attend this meeting for you and ensure everything goes as planned during the meeting – or at least handle any issues that do not go as planned.

Trustees have the authority to ask a lot of questions and clarify any information they have regarding your bankruptcy petition and schedules. Your attorney can manage these questions, but even more importantly, avoid the questions in the first place. It’s all in how your bankruptcy case is presented. If the paperwork is completed and correct, it’s less likely you’ll feel as if you are getting the third degree during the 341 Meeting.

Dealing with the Bankruptcy Court

No matter the reason, dealing with court can be an intimidating experience. It’s even worse when you are filing for bankruptcy because you are put under a microscope and judged for your financial issues.

The best bankruptcy attorneys are able to present your case in the best light possible. They’ve already laid the groundwork for smooth sailing and they’re able to guide you through the final phase of the process.

Bankruptcy is a process and it’s one that has been used by millions of people. However, every case is different and when it’s your turn to file for bankruptcy, it helps to have someone on your side guiding you through the process step by step.

As simple as bankruptcy is for some, it can be unpredictable and turn into something complicated. There’s too much at risk for you to try to go it alone. You need a miracle worker turning your worst financial situation into your greatest opportunity.
