What type of bankruptcy is best for me? You can file for different types of bankruptcy based on your individual or business financial situation. Each case is unique, and each type of bankruptcy has different criteria for what is required. For more information, see our pages on Chapter 7 and Chapter 13, or our page on the bankruptcy process.
Creditors won’t stop calling me at home or work. Can you help? Yes! We know that creditor harassment adds stress to an already difficult time in your life. By law, creditors must stop calling you once you have filed for bankruptcy or after they have been informed that a bankruptcy case is in progress. Once you have filed a bankruptcy petition, creditors who do not stop calling you can be punished by the court.
Why should I hire an attorney? Each bankruptcy is unique and every client has a different situation. Hiring an attorney with experience can represent you in navigating the complex legal process, and our lawyer at Campbell Law Firm will act as your trusted advisor and counselor to handle the individual complexities of your case.
What do I need to do after I have hired an attorney? It is very important that you disclose everything to your lawyer at the beginning of your case. Your lawyer needs to know about all of your assets, debts, and creditors in order to do the best job for you. Not disclosing important information can lead to case dismissal.
How much can I expect to pay when I file for bankruptcy? At Campbell Law Firm, we offer free bankruptcy consultations so there is no upfront cost to you. Our lawyer can evaluate your individual needs and decide the best course of action for your particular case. Once your case is evaluated, a fee can be quoted, and we offer payment plans to help you take the time you need to get you on the road to financial recovery.
