A Preview of the Process
After you have completed the first step of calling us at McCullough Eisenberg
and scheduling your free case evaluation, we can then continue the process
of helping you file for bankruptcy. As your representation, we start by
getting a better understanding of which bankruptcy plan is best for you
and your case.
We collect and examine your financial information, such as:
- Your tax returns
- Credit reports
- Paycheck stubs
- Bank statements
- Other financial statements
We can then use this information to file a petition with the court so that
the court can set a date for your 341 hearing (also known as the Meeting
of the Creditors). At this hearing, your court-appointed bankruptcy trustee
may question you about the information provided and discuss issues relating
to the bankruptcy, such as confirmation of your debt discharges. Once
an agreement is established in this hearing, your bankruptcy trustee may
liquidate your non-exempted assets to pay back your creditors (at this
point, your creditors' collection efforts stop). During this time, your
Warminster bankruptcy attorney may write Cease and Desist letters, enforced
by the courts, to your creditors who are not cooperating.
Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Right for You?
Each bankruptcy case is unique, and it is hard to know which bankruptcy
plan is best for you without a specific case evaluation. However, there
are certain common advantages and disadvantages in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Some benefits to a chapter 7 bankruptcy include:
- Gives you a “fresh start” discharge of certain debts
- Immediate halt of creditors’ collection efforts on date of filing
- No minimum debt requirement
- A quick process lasting between three to six months
