File For Bankruptcy From The Safety Of Your Home

File For Bankruptcy From The Safety Of Your Home

by | Dec 28, 2020 | Bankruptcy, Covid-19

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought a lot of difficult times on people around the world. However, one side benefit that it has brought has been the ability to handle processes online that have not been viable before.

You can now file for bankruptcy without ever leaving your house, and you can even attend your court hearings via telephone as well

Before Covid-19, you would need to appear physically at our law office, and a bankruptcy attorney would need to witness you physically sign the documents. As many people were already stretched to the limit with work and family schedules, it was often difficult for them to make it to the office physically. Traffic delays alone would account for a considerable number of missed appointments.
We have made these changes to do our part in helping people through this difficult time. As such, you can file your case without ever needing to step foot in our office.

Step One

Right off the bat, we conduct your free initial consultation with you by phone. We will review all of your debts, lawsuits, assets, income, and expenses with you during this conversation. Our objective with this call is to get a feel for your entire situation. At the end of your free consultation, we will clearly explain why Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy may be a good option for you.
We offer you the ability to speak directly with an experienced bankruptcy attorney who will analyze your case’s specific facts and answer any questions you might have.

If you choose to move forward with either Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy, we will require you to give us your social security number and birthdate so that we can then pull your credit card to process your bankruptcy petition.

If you have received any lawsuits or other bills that you would like for us to include in your case, scan and email them to us, or if you don’t have a scanner, a well-shot photograph will suffice.

Step Two

This step is the signing appointment, where we will go through each page of the bankruptcy petition with you via Zoom’s screen share function to make sure that it is perfect. When the review is complete, we will use DocuSign to sign the court’s required signature papers electronically.

We will be able to file your Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy case shortly after your signing appointment, so your court protection will begin immediately. We will also mail you a hard copy of the bankruptcy petition after your case is filed, which will require you to sign and send the documents back to us.

Whether you are considering a Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy case, it is essential to work with an attorney that you trust to help you through this challenging process. Please don’t hesitate to call us or use the live chat feature of our website. We will be happy to see you through this process every step of the way.
