If you are deeply in debt it can be very hard to see any way to the other side, to a life that doesn’t involve constant worry and sleepless nights. With each passing day the stack of bills and collection notices grows ever higher and the feeling of hopelessness ever more defeating. Even knowing about the option of filing for bankruptcy and the relief it can offer presents as just another impossible obstacle in your path. How can you pay for the lawyer and court fees when you’re already broke? It’s not like you can put it on a credit card! Bankruptcy seems like an option only for those who don’t need it.
Some will decide to try to file bankruptcy without an attorney to save on the fees. This approach is without a doubt proof of the adage “penny wise and pound foolish.” Bankruptcy laws are so complex that attorneys who don’t specialize in it won’t even file their own bankruptcies if necessary, choosing to be represented by an expert in bankruptcy law. Without that expertise and knowledge you could be risking so much more than a lawyer’s fee and the harm can be irreparable. You could actually end up in much worse shape that you were to begin with no recourse.
Understand that from the time you file for bankruptcy your financial obligations are going to be significantly reduced immediately. If you are eligible for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy you can permanently eliminate your unsecured debt which includes credit cards, medical bills, utility bills, and more. This will make it easier to pay the bankruptcy attorney fees for the services that will help you start a new life without creditors calling and harassing you and without impossible debt hanging over your head.
Bankruptcy lawyers understand your problem. They see it every day. It costs you nothing to make an appointment for a free consultation to discuss your situation and help you find your way out of it, including a way to pay the attorney’s fees.
