Many people seeking bankruptcy feel overwhelmed and confused by the process. While filing for bankruptcy isn’t intended to be difficult, the very nature of the process can be for the untrained person. Meeting with a Dallas bankruptcy attorney prior to filing is essential to the successful outcome of your case, here is why:
Case review — a quality bankruptcy attorney won’t sell you on their services, but will offer a free consultation to review your case. It is important that you are able to ask questions about your financial affairs and discuss all of your options, even those outside of bankruptcy. An attorney will be able to help you review your options and make the best decision for your financial future.
Guidance — throughout the bankruptcy process you will be required to complete documents, file paperwork with the court and outline the plan for your case. While it is possible to do this alone, having a bankruptcy attorney can make the process much easier. They can walk you through each step of the way and ensure you have everything you need for a successful discharge of your debts.
Mediation — dealing with creditors is one of the worst aspect of being in debt. When you file for bankruptcy, your attorney becomes your mediator. Creditors will be prohibited from contacting you and, instead, must go through your attorney. You won’t have to worry about credit collections or how payments are going to be made to creditors, your attorney will organize all of that for you.
