Englewood Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Information

Are You Considering Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a reorganization of your debts. This form of bankruptcy allows you to retain your property and pay back all or part of your debts over three to five years using your income if you meet certain eligibility requirements, so Chapter 13 is not for everyone.

Why a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lawyer Is Important

Any form of bankruptcy is complex, and an Englewood Chapter 13 bankruptcy lawyer can evaluate your financial circumstances and ability to repay your debts to determine if you are eligible. A lawyer can help you prepare the necessary legal documents and represent you at bankruptcy proceedings.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances - such as being charged with a crime - where you should always seek experienced legal help.

Top Questions to Ask a Lawyer

  • What is the usual process to resolve my case? How long will it take to resolve this?
  • What are likely outcomes of a case like mine? What should I expect?

An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic "road map" on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you've laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.

How to Find the Right Attorney

  • Determine the area of law that relates to your issue. Attorneys specialize in specific practice areas around legal issues within the broad field of law.
  • Seek out recommendations from friends, family, and colleagues. A successful attorney or practice will typically have many satisfied clients.
  • Set up consultation appointments to get a better understanding of your case as well as gauge your comfort level with different attorneys. Find the attorney who is the right fit for your needs.
