When you are struggling with your finances, it’s easy to think that going with the cheapest bankruptcy attorney you can find is the best option. However, you should know up front what exactly your attorney fees will cover. You do not want to pay a fee to a bankruptcy lawyer, only to find that you still have to pay more that was not covered in your contracted payment. Typically, you will want to find a bankruptcy attorney in Aurora, Centennial, or Parker whose fees cover the entire process, start to finish.
What Will My Centennial Bankruptcy Attorney Fees Cover?
While I cannot speak for all Centennial and Denver bankruptcy attorneys, I can tell you what your fees should take care of, based on how I do things:
1.Discussions regarding your specific financial situation
While the initial consultation is free, once retained, we would have in depth conversations regarding your specific financial situation.
Based on the information you provide, we will discuss your options – mainly looking at what type of bankruptcy is right for you. We will discuss the processes involved with the Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy and why it is the best option for you.
Your attorney fees should cover the cost of filing the petition to the Bankruptcy court. The fees vary depending on the type of bankruptcy filing.
4.In depth analysis of debts
Depending on the type of debt you carry, some of them may or may not be included on your petition. I look over all my client’s debts to determine which are eligible for discharge and make sure that all eligible debts are included.
I will fill out the extensive forms and petitions necessary for filing for bankruptcy and make sure they are filed on time. I will also keep you up to date on the process and timeline for completion.
Beyond the things listed above, your fees will cover the expertise that comes with many years of practicing bankruptcy law. When your bankruptcy is successful, I am successful. Your case is unique and you deserve someone with the knowledge and experience to handle your case as a new and individual case, giving it the proper attention you deserve for your money.
