3 Advantages of Working with a Bankruptcy Lawyer

When you are considering filing for bankruptcy, you likely are deeply and seriously financially struggling. Therefore, you might also be wondering how you could possibly pay a bankruptcy lawyer to help you with your bankruptcy or financial concerns. Here at the Law Office of Melissa Stewart, formerly Groff Law Firm, we understand that you are going through a difficult time professionally, personally and financially. We want you to know that even during these hard times, a bankruptcy lawyer can be to your benefit. Here are a few advantages to working with a bankruptcy lawyer that you should consider.

  1. Help avoid legal ramifications of improper filing. Filing for bankruptcy is not a simple thing to do. There are different types of bankruptcy and you need to meet certain standards in order to file for them. Additionally, filing bankruptcy can affect you for decades afterwards, sometimes your lifetime. When you work with a bankruptcy lawyer, you can move forward with an educated decision.
  2. Enjoy proper representation during proceedings. Many people don’t realize that filing for bankruptcy is a federal process and you will likely need to go to court to present your case. Having a bankruptcy lawyer on your side makes the process smoother and easier for everyone involved, often with better outcomes.
  3. Understand your options moving forward. When you file for bankruptcy, you don’t just get to erase all your debt and start over. A bankruptcy lawyer can help navigate foreclosure possibilities, future civil suits, and other creditor problems.
