Filing a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy means, if nothing else — paperwork. There are forms to document your income, your assets, your secured and unsecured debts, your home, your investments, the property exemptions you’re claiming, and on and on and on.
Bankruptcy is a complex administrative undertaking. Because of that, and because the process can be confusing — a great many people choose to have a lawyer help them with the process.
Unfortunately, there is more to the process than just paperwork. To get our clients the meaningful debt relief and substantial fresh start they need — to make certain that bankruptcy is the right choice — to position them to be in a strong place to move forward both personally and financially once it is complete — we do more than just fill out forms. For that kind of bankruptcy help — call our Norfolk law office directly at (757) 410-9263 or contact Berkhimer Law online.
