Is Bankruptcy Right for Me?

Bankruptcy Attorney West Palm Beach

Bankruptcy is a viable debt relief solution for most people.   A Bankruptcy isn't just a way of making all your debt disappear; some Bankruptcies set out a plan to pay back some of your debts in 3 to 5 years. The first step is to retain a Bankruptcy Attorney in West Palm Beach.

Bankruptcy is a process provided under federal law that allows individuals, married couples, partnerships, corporations, municipalities, and certain other entities to reorganize or eliminate liability for debts, thereby allowing them either a fresh start or an orderly liquidation. This is why you should hire an experienced Bankruptcy Attorney who knows how to navigate the process.

In order to determine if Bankruptcy is right for you, first you need to ask yourself:

  • Do I live paycheck to paycheck?
  • Have I had to decide between paying a bill or buying food?
  • Is the bank about to foreclose on my home?
  • Did I loose my job and have debt but no income?
  • Do I suffer from an illness that prevents me from working?
  • Are creditors constantly calling me requesting payment?

Although there are limitless questions you could ask yourself to determine if Bankruptcy can help you, if you answered YES to ONE, or more, of these questions above, a Bankruptcy might help you greatly!

Our Bankruptcy Attorneys spend much of the week in different Bankruptcy courthouses in South Florida, so if you are looking for a Bankruptcy Attorney in West Palm Beach, a Bankruptcy Attorney in Fort Lauderdale or a Bankruptcy Attorney in Miami, the Rivera Law Firm is your solution.
