Initial consult usually free.

Helpful to 1 out of 1 people

Many bankruptcy attornies offer a free initial consultation and you should listen to their advice because they know how much filing bankruptcy may hurt you more than the unpaid bills.  They may also have money management strategies to help you get smart about how you handle money.

If you have to file bankruptcy, the attorney will figure how to get their fees.  You may have to sell some things to make it work, but they know how to do that. And, trying to do a bankruptcy without an attorney is stupid!!  Too many complicated laws to deal with.

Laws vary from state to state. It also depends if you're filing chapter 7 or chapter 13. Go online and read everything you can. Some debts cannot be wiped out in a chapter 7, such as civil judgements and school loans.
