Filing for Bankruptcy With a Qualified Attorney

Due to the complexities of bankruptcy law, filing for bankruptcy without an attorney is ill-advised. Also known as filing pro se, filing for bankruptcy without a qualified lawyer puts you at risk for long-term financial setbacks. The bankruptcy litigation experts at Todd Cushner & Associates are here to help ensure your bankruptcy case achieves your desired outcome. With over 19 years of experience, our team of bankruptcy attorneys has earned the trust of individuals and families throughout Westchester County.

What Are the Advantages of Filing for Bankruptcy With a Qualified Attorney?

Filing personal bankruptcy under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 takes careful preparation and understanding of legal issues. Misunderstandings of the law or making mistakes in the process can affect your rights. Court employees and bankruptcy judges are prohibited by law from offering legal advice.

The following is a list of ways your lawyer can help you with your case.

  • Advise you on whether to file a bankruptcy petition.
  • Advise you under which chapter to file.
  • Advise you on whether your debts can be discharged.
  • Advise you on whether or not you will be able to keep your home, car, or other property after you file.
  • Advise you of the tax consequences of filing.
  • Advise you on whether you should continue to pay creditors.
  • Explain bankruptcy law and procedures to you.
  • Help you complete and file forms.
  • Assist you with most aspects of your bankruptcy case.

United States Courts

United States bankruptcy courts have nothing to gain monetarily by recommending that you obtain qualified legal counsel for your case. So, why do they do precisely that? Because the United States judicial system wants you to receive a fair legal outcome. And the best way to accomplish that is by being represented by a qualified, knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney. Representing yourself in bankruptcy court exposes you to various unintended negative ramifications.
