- I am concerned about lawyer fees, can I request a payment plan?
Our firm offers flexible payment plans to meet your specific budget.
- Will my credit be ruined if I file bankruptcy?
No! Since you will have fewer debts and a lower debt to income ratio and you will likely return to paying your bills on time after your case concludes, your credit score may be as high as 720 post discharge in some cases.
- I cannot lose my house or car, are they at risk if I file bankruptcy?
In the majority of cases if your car and house do not exceed a certain amount and you are current with your mortgage company and car lender, in most cases, these assets are not impacted when you file.
- I do not want to lose my tax refund
In a bankruptcy there are protections, or credits, that allow you to exempt your tax refund to a certain extent, everyone's case is different and the firm will be able to explain exactly how much and what can be protected when you receive your tax refund.
- Is it true that deadbeats file for bankruptcy?
Not true! Most of the people filing for bankruptcy are good honest hard working people, just like you and me, who file as a last resort after months or years or struggling to pay the bills. You are completely wrong in thinking that you are deadbeat if you file bankruptcy. If you need to file bankruptcy it can be one of the most responsible steps you can take for your family's happiness, prosperity and future.
- What is the financial sweatbox, is it dangerous and how can I avoid it?
The financial sweatbox is a term for the time before a person files for bankruptcy. This period goes beyond struggling, with asset depletion and debt collection lawsuits, people stuck in the sweatbox are dangerously waiting and forgoing basic necessities like food, to avoid filing bankruptcy.
- What is a long struggler and how can I avoid reducing assets?
A study found that 66% of those waiting to file bankruptcy were long strugglers, or those who endured the financial sweatox for 2 years or longer. By the time they file long strugglers typically had half the assets vs. filer who does not wait 2 years.
