What is Bankruptcy?
Bankruptcy is a complex area of law, even more so after the 2005 changes in the law. Although you can represent yourself in the proceedings, we do not recommend doing so. We also do not recommend picking an attorney with whom you are not entirely comfortable. Filing bankruptcy is one of the biggest financial decisions of your life, and bankruptcy done wrong or incomplete, can deny you the entirety of the relief you are entitled.
Bankruptcy laws are designed to protect debtors like you against harassing creditors in various fashions. It can also help you recoup money a creditor has taken from you recently, either by a garnishment or setoff. It also can stop a garnishment or foreclosure, but doesnt necessarily mean you will have to lose your house or your car. This is why it is imperative to pick a good attorney.
