Please continue reading and reach out to a dedicated Rockland County bankruptcy attorney from the Law Offices of Allen A. Kolber, Esq. today to learn more about initiating the bankruptcy process and how we can help you through it. Here are some of the questions you may have:

Where can I find the forms for initiating the bankruptcy process?

Along with the assistance of your attorney, you will file forms initiating the bankruptcy process on the United States Courts’ website. Your attorney can help ensure you’ve gathered all the appropriate forms and filled them out correctly. You should also note that it’s not uncommon for the bankruptcy court to require individuals to fill out additional forms for certain special requirements. With a competent legal team in your corner, you will have peace of mind knowing you’re taking all the steps needed to move toward a more financially stable future.

How do I file for bankruptcy in New York State?

Once we will out all the necessary forms, we’ll go over them together, and as long as you understand and approve, we’ll file the forms on your behalf. The importance of retaining competent legal counsel during this process cannot be stressed enough. We can assess your situation, determine the bankruptcy Chapter that’s best for you, and truly assess whether you have to file for bankruptcy at all. In some cases, those facing financial hardship can obtain relief through means other than bankruptcy. If you qualify for one of these means, such as a loan modification, we can take you through that process as well. If you have any further questions, give us a call today so we can begin working on your case.
