Even though hiring a bankruptcy attorney might seem unnecessary especially considering your current financial state, there are many advantages to having a professional, experienced lawyer by your side.
Most people do not have the necessary skills and expertise to navigate through the complicated process of filing bankruptcy. A bankruptcy lawyer will assist you with the required documentation, saving you from disastrous consequences if not done correctly.
When you go to court for bankruptcy, you will be asked questions by the judge, lenders and creditors. You may not know how to answer these questions without first being counseled. A bankruptcy attorney who is familiar with the bankruptcy process can help prepare you for the types of questions that will be asked, so you can be confident on the stand.
There is a significant amount of paperwork that must be completed during the bankruptcy process, and most people do not have the wherewithal or stamina to complete that much paperwork, much less complete it to the precise standards that the court requires. An attorney will assist you in completing the necessary paperwork, and counsel you on how to list your assets so they will be protected. You may wish to simply have your paperwork completed by a document preparer, however, they cannot provide legal advice.
A bankruptcy attorney will contact your creditors to stop them from calling you or sending you collection letters. This can help ease the anxiety and stress you have been experiencing with creditor harassment.
