For many debtors, filing for bankruptcy could breathe new life into their financial life. But, finding the information applicants need to get their Florida bankruptcy case started can be confusing. In particular, applicants without legal support from our lawyers in Gainesville & Ocala might be unaware of how to protect their property when declaring bankruptcy. Florida’s exemption laws allow debtors to keep their property depending on the bankruptcy chapter. For Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases, contact us today for a case consultation.
Like any other legal process, filing for bankruptcy is best left in the hands of an experienced professional. Please note that while applicants may file for bankruptcy on their own, they still need to pay all of the required filing fees. Bankruptcy attorney, Ken Hesser, can help debtors complete all the necessary paperwork for bankruptcy and get it right the first time. Doing so can help them avoid any complication down the road that would further prolong the already-lengthy bankruptcy process. The following includes a brief breakdown of the bankruptcy filing process.
In the U.S., there are several types of bankruptcy (referred to as chapters) available for individuals, businesses, and married couples — the most common being Chapter 7, 11, and 13. A lawyer can help you determine the best type of bankruptcy for you, depending on your assets, expected earnings, the debt amount, among other factors.
