With the current economy, many consumers are finding themselves a little behind on bills. Others find themselves so far in debt that there is no way out but bankruptcy. There are many reasons for racking up debt, and many more reasons for falling behind on payments. There is no shame in this and filing for bankruptcy relief is not the end of the world. It's possible to recover from a bankruptcy filing and build a high credit score again. While you are permitted to represent yourself in a bankruptcy filing, it is advisable to retain the services of an experienced bankruptcy lawyer. Retaining the services of an experienced bankruptcy lawyer offers many benefits.

Legal Knowledge

Many states and legal aid societies have put together "Do It Yourself" bankruptcy primers to help consumers handle their own cases. These primers are great for basic knowledge of the bankruptcy filing and adjudication process and how the courts work. However, a licensed bankruptcy attorney has handled thousands of different situations and knows the law as it pertains to each specific set of circumstances. In addition, your attorney may find clauses in the law that help you in your case, and look up previous case law to help you out. You might not have been able to find this information on your own, without paying high fees to services that offer legal research capabilities.


There are several different choices you will have to make when filing bankruptcy. The first and most important choice is which chapter you wish to file under. There are other issues that must be decided upon. Your attorney can give you the best advice for your particular situation and help you choose the direction in which to go. This will take a lot of burden off your shoulders and you will be able to rest knowing that you made the right choices for your own situation.

Stress Relief

Dealing with late payments and unpaid bills is extremely stressful. When you add a bankruptcy filing to that, the stress can be unbearable. Your attorney can relieve most of this burden from your shoulders. Your attorney will contact your creditors and let them know that you are in bankruptcy proceedings and they are usually not allowed to contact you until your case is adjudicated. Your attorney will also deal with filing you’re pleading with the court, handle any other necessary paperwork and may also be able to attend hearings for you. Some hearings allow you to not be present if your attorney appears on your behalf.

You can find an experienced bankruptcy lawyer by contacting your local bar association. There are bar associations in many cities and counties, and every state has a bar association. The costs of an attorney services are far less than the benefits provided. Many attorneys offer a free consultation so you can interview them before you retain them to help you with your bankruptcy case. The most important thing is to deal with your situation as soon as possible.
