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?
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.
