We are continuing our series of articles highlighting some of the reasons to consider hiring a qualified bankruptcy lawyer. Charleston has many attorneys, but it is important to understand that not all are familiar with filing bankruptcy. Just as you probably would not hire an estate planning attorney to handle your divorce, it is advisable that when filing bankruptcy, you consider hiring a bankruptcy attorney who is familiar with the process. Our previous article discussed how a bankruptcy lawyer understands what you can and cannot do when it comes to filing bankruptcy. We also covered how a bankruptcy lawyer can help you determine which type of bankruptcy is best for you. Let’s look at two more reasons why you should consider engaging a bankruptcy attorney.
A Bankruptcy Lawyer Will Handle All the Paperwork
There is a lot of paperwork associated with filing Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. A bankruptcy lawyer is familiar with the paperwork and knows what information is needed to submit a successful filing. A qualified bankruptcy attorney also stays on top of the latest requirements and any changes to the law that may affect your filing.
A Bankruptcy Attorney Will Represent You in Court
A qualified bankruptcy lawyer is familiar with the requirements of the court, including important deadlines that must be met. Having a bankruptcy attorney represent you in court takes these burdens from you so you are better able to focus on making a fresh new start.
Bottom line, engaging a qualified bankruptcy lawyer can save you time, spare you from a lot of headaches and red tape, and significantly increase your chances of a successful filing.
