When considering filing for bankruptcy, you should take time to do research and weigh your options. So, you may be asking yourself if it is easier to take a DIY approach to bankruptcy and file on your own. Before making any decisions, you will want to read more:
Problems With Filing On Your Own
It is entirely possible to file for bankruptcy on your own, but be cautious, as there are many technical details. A lack of knowledge of bankruptcy law can prevent you from obtaining a successful discharge in a Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 case. For instance, local and state laws also help determine how your case will be completed. If you rely on a website for information, it may only be stating information on federal statutes and not considering your local and state laws and/or regulations. Or, that website may not have been updated to include changes to the laws.
How an Experience Attorney Can Help
Not all bankruptcies are the same, so you want someone on your side that can understand all the ins and outs of the local system can maximize asset protection and get you results. You may run into extra expenses and/or the loss of assets if you make any mistakes in your DIY filing. An attorney can help you avoid these problems. An attorney can also leverage laws like the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) to sue any creditors that continue to contact you after filing.
