What should I expect when filing for bankruptcy? 

Right after filing for bankruptcy, two things will happen:

  • A case number will be assigned to your bankruptcy 
  • A trustee will be assigned to your case

The trustee will walk you through the filing process, including assessing your bankruptcy forms and requesting additional documents incase additional verification is needed. Additionally, they will assist you with the meeting of creditors.

Whether you have filed for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, the automatic stay will also go into place at this point. This ensures protection from creditors and means that they will not be allowed to take any collection steps against you.

Is there a downside to filing for bankruptcy?

Filing for bankruptcy can bring you a sense of financial security because most of your debts will be wiped away, depending on the chapter you file under. In many cases, you can regain control of your financial state and the abusive phone calls from creditors cease.

“Bankruptcy” is seen as a dirty word, however, and there is some weight to that. When you file for bankruptcy, it will impact your credit score. Additionally, your property may be ceased and you may experience trouble obtaining a loan in the future. 

If you’d like to discuss your case with our team at RAK Law Firm, our bankruptcy attorneys are here to help. We can help you weigh your options and know whether bankruptcy is the best route for you.

What is the process of filing for bankruptcy?

Once you’ve made the decision to file for bankruptcy, you likely are wondering what happens next. You likely already understand the concept of bankruptcy, but it will be important to work with a knowledgeable attorney to guide you through the process. 

Once you have your respectable Florida bankruptcy attorney set, the process will look like the following:

  • Two mandatory counseling sessions will take place
  • You will then file for bankruptcy with the court
  • Depending on which chapter you filed under, your assets will be liquidated or you will begin repaying a portion of your debt
  • You will then undergo a required education course before your debts can be discharged
  • Finally, the long awaited event of the debt discharge will occur

If you need assistance during any step of the bankruptcy process, our team is available to be your guide. Call (813) 750-0513 or contact us online!
