Will My Bankruptcy Attorney Charge Me for Dealing With Court Papers? – Anna

“Dear Steve,

I am planning to see a bankruptcy attorney, but I have a few questions. I received court papers and I have a certain amount of days to respond. Will a bankruptcy attorney charge me separately for each? (filing for bankruptcy and the court papers) Also, what do you think about the legal aid society and bankruptcy?

Thank You


Dear Anna,

I assume those court papers are in regards to a lawsuit against you for a debt. That will simply be part of your bankruptcy filing and the sooner you can file the quicker that will be addressed.

There is some pro bono bankruptcy assistance out there but I understand the waiting times are long and the criteria for receiving such assistance is strict. It doesn’t hurt to check it out though, click here.

    Remember, the federal bankruptcy laws can help you if you use them!if you are considering bankruptcy, you may be wondering which one is best for you. It is very important to find an attorney who will always be accessible, and who will be able to devote as much time as necessary to every aspect of your case.

      I just wish more people would be less intimidated about reaching out for advice from a bankruptcy lawyer and evaluate all of their options. People accuse me sometimes of pushing bankruptcy but ultimately what I’m pushing most is information and informed consent.
