Timeline: Retaining The Attorney

Once you have decided to move forward with filing a bankruptcy, you can retain the attorney by making a down payment toward the total cost of the bankruptcy and signing the retainer agreement.

We will then open your file and you will receive an email with the instructions to complete the pre-filing credit counseling course and a list of additional information needed to file your bankruptcy petition. You can continue to send payments toward the balance of your fees and of course contact us with any questions or concerns you may have.

Additionally, you can inform your creditors that you have retained the attorney for bankruptcy. Give them our name and telephone number and they will begin to call our office to check on the status of your case rather than continue to bother you. This will hopefully ease some of the pressure caused by nagging phone calls to your home, cell phone, and office.

We are a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code.
