What Is Pro Se Bankruptcy?
Why You Need an Arlington Bankruptcy Attorney
Pro se bankruptcy is a bankruptcy where you represent yourself, going without a lawyer. During a stressful, financially difficult time, people who are considering bankruptcy often shrug off the option of legal counsel. In the face of such financial turbulence, why take on an additional expense?
The right attorney can do more than help you navigate your Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 case to the swiftest and most agreeable resolutions. A skilled Arlington bankruptcy lawyer can also structure affordable fees that won't add to your financial burdens, while helping you avoid costly errors. For 30+ years, that is exactly the kind of service Attorney Garner and her team have provided countless bankruptcy clients, and they're ready to extend the same to you.
If you are facing financial strains and want to gain the most benefits possible from the bankruptcy process, we urge you to call our office.
Advantages to Bankruptcy Representation
Depending on the circumstances and scope of your debts, you may file either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 as a consumer. Generally speaking, Chapter 13 addresses more complicated cases, but both kinds of bankruptcy can be demanding and complex. Having the representation of a skilled and knowledgeable Arlington bankruptcy lawyer is equally beneficial for all chapters.
Benefits of bankruptcy representation can include:
- Thorough assistance on significant reporting and paperwork
- Proper valuation and exemptions of your bankruptcy estate
- Assurance of legal compliance with both state and federal law
- Action against creditor harassment, especially autodial campaigns
- Defense against creditor action to lift automatic stay protections
- Vigilance against fraudulent creditor claims on your estate
- Counsel on any bankruptcy procedure or complication that may arise
You Don't Have to Face Bankruptcy Alone
Whether you're a sole filer, the head of a family, or the owner of a business, you do not have to face bankruptcy alone. During such an involved process, it's so important that your filing is protected against tampering, oversights, and altogether dismissal by a judge.
