The Step by Step Process of Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

During our meeting, our experienced attorneys will take a close look at your documents and will let you know if you are eligible for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. If you are earning too much income and cannot qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, we値l advise you of your rights under a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. In this session, we値l also inform you about our transparent and modest legal fees, so you are clear about our fees.

2. The next step is the bankruptcy means test, which you have to clear in order to qualify under Chapter 7. While an overwhelming majority of our clients filing for bankruptcy clear this test easily, we値l give you additional options and guidance just in case you fail the test.

3. Once you are clear to file for bankruptcy under Chapter 7, we値l help you complete all necessary paper work. As your bankruptcy attorney, we will make sure to complete all necessary documents before filing your case.

4. We値l appear at the court with you at the initial hearing. Before the hearing, we値l brief you on what to expect and the types of questions which will be asked.

5. You値l be required by law to take a credit counseling class. We値l help you get enrolled and fulfill this requirement. It is easy and can be done either online or over the phone.
