When Should You Consider Filing Bankruptcy?
When debt has become unmanageable, it may be time to consider filing bankruptcy. Deciding to take the first step of contacting an attorney is a positive move for an overwhelmed debtor. Do not worry about figuring out when you should file. An experienced lawyer can advise you on the most appropriate timing according to your unique situation.
From Law Offices in Neptune and Toms River, Bankruptcy Lawyers Can Help Determine The Best Time For You To File
Timing is indeed important as you plan whether — and when — to file bankruptcy. At Oliver & Legg, we can recommend a workable timetable for your New Jersey bankruptcy. In a free initial consultation, we may ask questions such as the following to help determine how your case is most likely to succeed:
- Do you have any pending surgery to be concerned about? It may be best to get that surgery before you start your bankruptcy process.
- Is your debt making you depressed? If your facts line up, it may be best for you to file as soon as possible to stop creditors from harassing you.
- Do you qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy? A discussion with an attorney and a government-mandated means test can determine the answer to this question. One of the best things about a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is that it is over with rather quickly. You can begin rebuilding your credit sooner once your burdensome debts are discharged.
- Would it be better in your case to file a combination of bankruptcies (for example, a Chapter 7 followed by a Chapter 13)? Sequencing and timing of the two will help determine the probable outcome of your bankruptcy or bankruptcies.
