Why You Need a Bankruptcy Attorney
It is certainly logical to think that if you are struggling, hiring someone to help you isn’t a cost-effective solution. The truth is that even the U.S. Bankruptcy Court recommends that individuals going through any type of bankruptcy process should work with an attorney. Because choosing not to do so can result in losing all of your assets, or debt may not be properly discharged. Working with an experienced attorney can help increase your chances of the best possible outcome.
Bankruptcy Laws Are Not Set Up to Be Easy for You
It may surprise you to learn that bankruptcy laws have been in place since the 1800s – and they were never designed to help debtors. They were there to freeze the assets of the debtor from a free-for-all from creditors while the debtor was in prison.
Today, debtor’s prisons have been outlawed and people have the option of a “fresh start” by filing bankruptcy. Still, the laws are not simple. For many years debtors were slowing getting more rights and options, but in 2005 the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act was signed and the bankruptcy laws took a sharp turn toward the favor of creditors.
