WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO TO FILE FOR BANKRUPTCY IN WEST PALM BEACH?
There are many different forms concerning your debts, assets and income which can be filled out in the comfort of your own home and brought to me for review. When I receive a client’s bankruptcy forms, I thoroughly exam said documents to ensure that my clients are not fined or are possibly facing legal actions against them due to improper filing.
After I carefully prepare your petition, it then gets filed with the court and an automatic stay is placed on all collection actions. This means no more letters or phone calls from creditors.

Within 10 days of your filing for bankruptcy, you may receive a notice from the court, which will have a meeting date and time. Depending on which chapter of bankruptcy you filed for, you may be required meet with the bankruptcy trustee and your creditors on said day to answer questions concerning you income, expenses, assets and debts. If there are no valid objections to your form of bankruptcy, your debt will be discharged.
If you filed for chapter 13 bankruptcy, the trustee may examine your proposed payment plan, and creditors have the option to dispute the plan you submitted if they do not agree to such terms. Those who file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy usually do not have to appear in court and often do not have to see a bankruptcy judge unless an objection is raised by creditors.
