Ask whether they will help you with credit cards and loans, foreclosures and repossessions, medical bills, and other kinds of debts.
Ask if they will keep you updated on the status of your bankruptcy.
Ask if you can refer your creditors to the preparer immediately.
Ask if they will help you keep your property and give you advice on re-establishing your credit.
Ask whether you’re able to receive legal advice based on an analysis of your individual financial situation.
A bankruptcy preparer cannot answer “yes” to any of these questions. Only an attorney can answer “yes” to these questions and can be your advocate with the court and your creditors.
With the help of an attorney, you can stop repossessions, you can stop wage assignments. You can eliminate credit card debt or, if necessary, establish a no-interest payment plan.
Call me and I will personally answer your questions. - John M. Miller, Attorney at Law
