EVALUATING YOUR SITUATION
With the current economy, there are many legitimate reasons why you and your family might be struggling to make ends meet. Whether a loss of employment, a serious injury or other major life changes or circumstances, an attorney can help you avoid common pitfalls in the application process and can introduce you to alternatives to bankruptcy that you would not have known were available.
During your initial consultation, Mr. Loa will analyze your financial situation, and render advice in determining whether to file a petition in bankruptcy.
FILING FOR BANKRUPTCY
Once you’ve retained the Attorney, you will be provided the following legal services:
• Preparation and filing of any petition, schedules, statement of affairs and plan which may be required;
• Representation of the debtor at the meeting of creditors, confirmation hearing, and any adjourned hearing
• Representation of the debtor in adversary proceedings and other contested bankruptcy matters;
• Other provisions as needed
REQUIREMENTS FOR BANKRUPTCY
You will need to complete a pre-petition online credit counseling course before filing
You will also need to complete a post-petition online counseling course after the bankruptcy petition is filed and within the time frame allowed by statute. Debtor acknowledges that the bankruptcy cannot be filed without the certificate of completion of the pre-bankruptcy credit counseling. Debtor understands that no discharge of debts will be issued if the post-bankruptcy credit counseling is not completed within the statutory time frame.
Both pre-petition and post-petition credit counseling courses can be found on the Abacus Credit Counseling website: www.abacuscc.org.
Finally, we will need written authority to obtain Debtor’s credit report from a major credit reporting entity such as: Experian, Transunion, or Equifax.
