Can I Do Some Of The Work On My Bankruptcy Case Myself To Save Money
We know that when you are having a hard time paying all of your bills each month, that the temptation to cut back and save money where you can is great. There are a lot of opportunities out there to minimize your expenses, such as clipping coupons, brown bagging your lunch instead of eating out, renting movies rather than going to dinner and a show, and the list goes on endlessly. But one spot you definitely do not want to try and cut back is on professional services. If you get sick with something that can’t be treated with an over the counter medication, go to the doctor. If you are being audited by the IRS, call an accountant. And if you need legal representation, call an attorney with experience in the area where you need assistance.
While many cases are handled pro se every year, the dangers and pitfalls are too great to leave things to chance. The sheer volume of legal statutes, rules, and procedures is such that it is best for a person trained in the law and with the experience of going to Court and negotiating with other lawyers to handle court proceedings. When it comes to filing for bankruptcy, money is already tight, but the issue of getting out of debt is far too significant to try and tackle alone. Rather than try and take on this extra burden yourself, call our office for help. That said, there are plenty of things you can do to help your case move more quickly, such as:
• Be sure all of your data is complete when you give it to your attorney to prepare your case.
• Finish your credit counseling courses as soon as possible, so this requirement is not hanging over your head.
• Direct any calls from lenders to your attorney, so they can receive a quick reply about your case.
We have helped many people get out debt by filing bankruptcy, and can help you too. The approach we take is one that includes your involvement, and we keep you updated every step of the way. You will feel confident that your finances are in good hands, and that your financial future is secure.
