What not to do when filing for chapter 7 bankruptcy

Feeling overwhelmed by a massive amount of debt? Feeling the weight of the economy piling on your shoulders?

At Blick Law Firm, we understand that filing for bankruptcy can be a very difficult and emotional process. However, it is important to remember that bankruptcy protects and provides relief for people overwhelmed with debt.

Bankruptcy laws liquidate assets to pay debts or create repayment plans to help people make a fresh, financial start. People with businesses are also able to file bankruptcy for orderly distributions of liquidation or financial re-organization. Most bankruptcy cases are filed under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code. Federal courts have exclusive jurisdiction over bankruptcy cases, so they cannot be filed in a state court.

The difference between a successful and an unsuccessful bankruptcy claim lies in correctly filing information and paperwork. Make sure you take the proper steps and precautions when filing for bankruptcy. Blick Law Firm has the expertise to assist you with your bankruptcy claim. We guide our clients every step of the way to answer any questions that may arise and ensure your claim is successful.

In today’s economy, filing for bankruptcy is common and often the best alternative. Rise above your current financial situation and take control today. Call Blick Law Firm to set up your FREE consultation to see if you qualify for a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.
