A Houston bankruptcy lawyer can offer you help in a number of ways. This will start with the decision-making process of whether you will file in the first place. This is an important choice. Filing your petition will immediately stop all debt collection action against you, placing an automatic stay on creditor contact, lawsuits and even foreclosure. If your case is completed properly, all of your eligible debt will be discharged, leaving you free to face a fresh start. However, this is an aggressive action and it may have negative consequences if it is approached improperly or if it is truly not the right choice for you. An attorney can help you by giving you accurate information that lets you make your own decision.
Through the entire process of any Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 case, your lawyer will help by protecting your rights as a debtor, properly applying the laws to ensure that your property is protected and in all helping your case go as smoothly and efficiently as possible. This will help you achieve the debt relief you are seeking.
