Bankruptcy

When should I contact a bankruptcy lawyer?

  • I’ve lost my job, my bills are piling up, and I can’t afford to pay them.
  • I can’t afford my mortgage but I want to save my home.
  • I receive calls from creditors or bill collectors.
  • My credit card debt is overwhelming.

Why should I hire a lawyer?

Filing for bankruptcy can be an extremely complex and lengthy process. Hiring a lawyer who is familiar with bankruptcy forms and procedures will ensure that your case is filed correctly and due dates and payments are made on time. If a case is not filed correctly, your petition could be dismissed and you may lose certain protections.

How do I choose a bankruptcy lawyer?

Because filing for bankruptcy is complicated, it is important to hire a lawyer who is familiar with the process and has past experience with bankruptcy law. All of the bankruptcy attorneys on the BBA Lawyer Referral Service have past experience helping debtors file for bankruptcy.
