Choosing Your Bankruptcy Lawyer
Debt relief and bankruptcy is planning for you or your business' financial future and can be a complicated process. It is important to interview a bankruptcy lawyer before you retain him or her.
A bankruptcy attorney does much more than just fill out forms. It is not obvious what financial information is important or what the consequences of that information may be. Your bankruptcy forms may be correct but that does not solve your problem. There may be issues in your case that you didn't think about or were not told about.
Before you file for bankruptcy you must understand how to protect your money and property, what debts and taxes can be eliminated, and when and where to file for bankruptcy. Filing a bankruptcy case may not be the best option for you while other alternatives described in this Site might be.
Interview the Lawyer
You should use your first consultation with a bankruptcy attorney to talk about your financial condition, needs, priorities and goals. He or she should give you a general idea about your debt relief options and make initial recommendations. You should receive an estimate of the fees and costs you may incur for legal services.
