Helping You Understand the Bankruptcy Process in Texas

Feelings of shame and embarrassment often accompany thoughts of bankruptcy. It is therefore common for individuals contemplating bankruptcy to wonder whether their bankruptcy will become common knowledge in their community.

Any bankruptcy is part of the public record. It is therefore impossible to “hide” or suppress the facts of your bankruptcy. However, it is unlikely that your friends, family or employer will find out about your bankruptcy. Why?

When you file a bankruptcy case, notice will be sent to your creditors. Unless you owe people close to you money, there is no way your friends, family or employer will be informed of your bankruptcy as part of the legal process. Non-creditors would have to request information from the courts to determine whether you filed for bankruptcy. Fortunately, this action rarely occurs.

If you face financial challenges and are concerned about who will learn about your potential bankruptcy, contact me to discuss your options. I am attorney Carrie L. Wier of the Law Offices of Carrie L. Wier.

I have assisted hundreds of clients discretely and successfully protect assets and get a fresh start in Rockwall and in the Dallas area. With 10 years of experience, I can assess your financial situation and determine whether it makes sense to file bankruptcy. If not, we can discuss alternatives to bankruptcy.

Often, the fallout from repossession and foreclosure is highly public, when bankruptcy can be accomplished in comparative privacy. For more information, please contact the Law Offices of Carrie L. Wier by calling 972-772-3083 .
