The Worst Mistake You Can Make: Not Seeking A Lawyers Advice

Bankruptcy is not something that you should do alone. Despite many websites that say you can file for bankruptcy by yourself, supply the paperwork (for a fee) and describe the process for you, by not hiring a lawyer to save money you could be costing yourself severely. It is easy to make mistakes on paperwork, or miss filing deadlines (which will get your case dismissed). A lawyer that is experienced with Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 bankruptcies knows how to protect your assets, streamline the process, and be an advocate on your behalf when you need to communicate with creditors, trustees, and the court.

This is one of the biggest financial decisions of your life.
