The Reasons Why You Want to Hire a Bankruptcy Lawyer

Why It’s Not a Good Idea to Handle Your Own Filing

The Reasons Why You Want to Hire a Bankruptcy LawyerYou’re struggling to meet your financial obligations, either because you lost your job, you’ve been sick or injured, or you’ve gone through a divorce. You may not own a lot of property and your financial circumstances may seem simple. Should you consider handling a bankruptcy filing on your own? What are the benefits of working with a knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney?

How a Bankruptcy Lawyer Can Help You Get a Better Outcome

Though it may seem simple, the bankruptcy process can get complicated in a hurry. It’s almost always to your benefit to hire an experienced bankruptcy lawyer. Here’s why:

  • A good bankruptcy attorney will help you determine whether bankruptcy is really in your best interests. Will you be able to discharge the debts that are causing most of your problems? Would it be easier to work directly with your creditors and put together a repayment plan?
  • An experienced bankruptcy lawyer will be able to immediately advise you as to whether you qualify to permanently discharge debts through Chapter 7, and will help you decide the best course of action, should you have options.
  • A proven bankruptcy attorney will know what assets you can keep, as well as what debts may be discharged. Though Texas has among the most liberal bankruptcy exemptions in the nation, you still want a knowledgeable person to ensure that you get to keep as much as possible.
  • A knowledgeable bankruptcy lawyer can help you determine whether to file your bankruptcy petition before or after a divorce, and can help you understand the potential tax implications of a bankruptcy petition
  • An experienced bankruptcy attorney can provide counsel on whether you should continue making payments to creditors
