If you are thinking of filing for bankruptcy protection, it is critical that you get good advice as early as possible. The United States Bankruptcy Court has stressed that hiring an attorney, rather than representing yourself, is highly recommended. Many bankruptcy issues can be very complex and it can be difficult to prepare the required paperwork without proper guidance.
Further, there are certain critical questions which you will need answered before you file for bankruptcy protection.
- Will I be required to pay back some or all of my debts during the years after filing?
- Which types of property can I retain?
- Which types of property must I relinquish to my creditors?
- Which debts will be discharged (forgiven) by the bankruptcy and which will remain?
