Here Are Some Things You Should Know About Bankruptcy

At Shults Law Office we are often asked similar questions by clients who are afraid of the idea of facing bankruptcy and who have come to us for legal assistance. Although each client's case will have its own unique circumstances, filing for bankruptcy is not an isolated occurrence. We've compiled answers to a few bankruptcy FAQs we hope can alleviate any concerns you may have.

Q: Should I File For Bankruptcy?

A: Filing for bankruptcy is typically a fast process, one that can help you resolve your financial issues. Under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, a lawyer can help you relieve your debts, as well as stop creditors from harassing you with phone calls, threats of collections, lawsuits and more.

Q: What Does The Bankruptcy Process Look Like?

A: Most cases will take about three to six months to resolve. When you file for bankruptcy, your creditors have a 90-day deadline to file proof of your debt, contest your case and request payment from you. Since this can become complicated quickly, it is in your best interest to have an attorney who can guide you throughout the entire process.

Q: Do I Get To Keep My Car And House?

A: This depends. With Chapter 7 bankruptcy, it is often necessary to liquidate assets in order to pay off debts. However, our attorney will work with you to determine the wisest course of action and see which liquidation options will work best for you. Our aim is to save items that are important and essential to you as you move forward and rebuild your life. This may include your home or a vehicle that allows you to get to and from your job.
