The Bankruptcy Process

How Bankruptcy Works

The first step in the bankruptcy process is determining whether or not this legal option is the best solution for your debt problems. Once you have decided to file for bankruptcy, there are numerous procedures that must be followed before your debts are discharged. An experienced Cerritos bankruptcy attorney can help you understand how bankruptcy works, and provide valuable assistance in filing a petition for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. A knowledgeable lawyer will also skillfully represent you in court.

"Before submitting your petition, it will also be necessary for you to take a credit counseling class from a federally approved organization."

Before submitting your petition, it will also be necessary for you to take a credit counseling class from a federally approved organization. These classes are usually conducted by phone or on the internet and last one to two hours. After your credit counseling session is completed, your petition can be filed. A Trustee will be appointed to review your petition, as well as attend your hearing. During your court appearance, you may be asked additional questions regarding your financial situation which your attorney can help address. Before discharging your debt, the court will also require you to complete a financial management class.
