Hobart Bankruptcy Lawyers Handling Chapter 7 And Chapter 13

Choosing to file bankruptcy could be the best decision you will ever make. At Manning & Mouratides, P.C., we understand the complex nature of bankruptcy law as well as the toll that financial hardship takes on our clients. Every case is handled with personal attention to assure that the legal recommendations we provide are tailored to each client's unique circumstances.

Our Lake County and Highland area Chapter 13 lawyers can guide you through the process, which typically takes the following course:

During an initial consultation, we will cover a series of questions that determines what type of bankruptcy would be appropriate for your financial needs. You will have the opportunity to ask the questions that weigh on your mind and receive information regarding what documentation to bring in for the next meeting with your attorney.

When all necessary information is collected, we will proceed with the bankruptcy petition, sign appropriate papers and file for bankruptcy on your behalf. Approximately 30 days after this, the 341 meeting takes place with the bankruptcy trustee. During this meeting, the trustee will review the information in your petition and ask questions regarding your assets, income and debts. Having attorney Kenneth A. Manning at our firm is particularly helpful in this case as he is both a seasoned bankruptcy attorney as well as a bankruptcy Trustee, and can provide valuable insight into how the Trustee will manage your assets, ultimately helping your bankruptcy plan get approved.

Shortly after confirmation of your debt relief plan, your debts will either be discharged in Chapter 7 or your new, manageable repayment plan in Chapter 13 will begin.

It does not take long for bankruptcy to rid you of the stress of your debt. We can help you find a lasting solution so you can get a new start.
