As you prepare to meet with your new bankruptcy attorney, it’s important you cover all aspects of your case. Here are four essential questions to ask your attorney about your bankruptcy case:
“Should I file for bankruptcy?”
Bring records of all of your relevant financial information when you meet with your bankruptcy attorney, including all loan and financing documents you have. Your attorney can use them to determine your current financial state and whether bankruptcy is a viable solution to your money issues.
“Do I have any other options?”
Bankruptcy is a major move. A good bankruptcy attorney can help you determine if you have any other options. However, if bankruptcy is right for you, don’t hesitate to file; you don’t want to sink into extreme debt if you’re not already there.
“What chapter of bankruptcy should I file for?”
Your bankruptcy attorney can explain the differences between Chapters 7 and 13 (the two most commonly used chapters in the United States), their long-term implications and which is more suitable for your situation.
“How long will the bankruptcy process take for me?”
The bankruptcy process works differently for everyone, and your financial situation may either make it easier or more challenging. Knowing how long filing for bankruptcy will take for your situation will help you decide whether it's the right choice for you at the time.
