What Is Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is an important legal proceeding provided for in the United States Constitution, which allows the bankrupt to reorganize and discharge debts. It is designed to provide relief and protection to the debtor, and to fairly distribute the debtor’s assets amongst their creditors.

How Will Bankruptcy Help Me?

Filing for Bankruptcy immediately stops most of your creditors from collecting their debts, as well as allowing you to protect your home, wages, cars, retirement, and your family. Bankruptcy can also stop harassing creditor calls, repossessions, lawsuits, foreclosures and garnishments.

Why Do I Need An Attorney?

Although you may file bankruptcy without an attorney, you should be aware that bankruptcy is a complicated process. You may lose your property and other rights if you do not know the law. If you start a bankruptcy case which is not completed, your discharge may be denied, and you may be barred from filing for several years.
