Total Bankruptcy is a consumer resource, providing hundreds of pages of information about each state's bankruptcy laws, the bankruptcy process, bankruptcy filing requirements, and general financial, economic and consumer protection information to consumers across the country.
We strive to provide the best online bankruptcy resources available, and to provide as much information as possible about issues like Chapter 7 bankruptcy eligibility and means testing, the differences between the Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy Codes , pre-bankruptcy requirements, non-dischargeable debts, bankruptcy exemptions and more.
However, we also recognize that when it's time to actually make a decision about filing for bankruptcy, it can be a good idea to talk one-on-one with a bankruptcy attorney in your area.
Would you hire a criminal lawyer for a real estate closing, or a patent attorney for a divorce? Of course not. Finding an attorney for your case can be difficult.
And if you seek referrals from friends and family, you may end up with a lawyer who did a great job with your brother's traffic ticket or your grandmother's will, but maybe isn't really a bankruptcy lawyer.
When you talk with a sponsoring bankruptcy lawyer through Total Bankruptcy, you know exactly what to expect: that attorney has chosen to participate in this national effort to inform prospective bankruptcy petitioners like you.
Total Bankruptcy was founded one of the country's most prolific consumer bankruptcy attorneys and is sponsored by consumer bankruptcy lawyers across the country.
After working with thousands of consumer bankruptcy clients, the team knows what kind of information is important to people who are considering filing bankruptcy and what kind of resources you may be looking for.
We also know how difficult the decision to file for bankruptcy protection can be, and how important it is that you have accurate information to help you make calm, educated decisions to protect your financial future.
Every case is different. We know there's no one "right answer" for everyone.
We also know, though, that good decisions require good information.
Make use of the resources on the Total Bankruptcy website and educate yourself about bankruptcy in general. Then, if you think that filing bankruptcy might be the right option for you, speak with a bankruptcy lawyer in your area.
There's no commitment--just an opportunity to get your questions about bankruptcy answered so that you can make a better decision about whether Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy might be right for you.
