Frequently Asked Questions

Why Do You Need a Bankruptcy Lawyer?

Consumer bankruptcy lawyers handle creditors, clear debt, and set up payment plans when you file for bankruptcy.

Does Filing For Bankruptcy Take a Long Time?

It takes between four and six months. The process of filing for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 typically takes between four and six months, if everything is in order before the filing occurs. There are a lot of moving parts when filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and if any one of them is missed or delayed, the process can be slowed down or stopped.

What Will You Lose If You Declare Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy under Chapter 7 wipes out most types of debt, such as credit card, medical bills, and personal loans. A bankruptcy discharge from a court judge relieves you of your obligation to pay these types of unsecured debt.
