When you are struggling to make ends meet, you may be wondering if you can afford to file a bankruptcy case. The legal and administrative filing fees can seem overwhelming, but below are a few things to consider:
- Be wary of advertisements that “guarantee” a certain result for a small payment, because every case is unique and no guarantees should be made regarding the result of your case.
- Some debtors believe they can save money by using a bankruptcy petition preparer. It is important to understand that a petition preparer only completes the paperwork for your initial filings. This means that you are on your own throughout the rest of your case. A petition preparer cannot give you legal advice or help if issues arise after your case is filed.
- We fully understand that you are having money troubles and we want to help. The fees we charge are very reasonable compared to the amount of debt your bankruptcy will likely eliminate! The fee you pay to help ensure a successful case will seem like a bargain when you are free from your burdensome debt.
- Think outside the box when it comes to paying for your bankruptcy. For example, start saving money or borrow money from family or friends to pay for your bankruptcy. If necessary, we will accept a payment plan.
As seasoned bankruptcy lawyers, we understand your financial situation and we want to help. Keep in mind that whatever it takes to afford your filing will be well worth it when you receive your financial fresh start!
