5 Reasons Why You Should File Bankruptcy Now


  • With all the financial turmoil the world is experiencing right now, lots of people are struggling to pay their bills. People are experiencing a reduction in hours, or have lost their job altogether. Others are going through financial setbacks because of medical illness or separations. No matter the cause, it is unhealthy to carry all the stress, worry and anxiety that comes from debt. If you're ready to take action, bankruptcy lawyers in queens, like the Law Office of Richard Kistnen, can help you get out of debt.

    What Should Clients Look For When Looking for a Bankruptcy Attorney in Queens?

    Searching for a lawyer to provide legal representation when you file for bankruptcy shouldn't be complicated. The most important part is that you want to feel comfortable and confident with an attorney you choose to work with. In the bankruptcy process, you will be sharing many intimate details of your life, and so it's critical that you have a lot of trust and comfort in the attorney-client relationship. You can get a sense of this by scheduling an initial consultation with a bankruptcy lawyer in Queens.

    Moving beyond connecting with someone that you feel comfortable working with would be someone with legal experience in bankruptcy proceedings. Bankruptcy cases aren't like normal plaintiff vs. defendant cases in civil court, but rather mostly administrative proceedings - until a bankruptcy issue arises. Someone without the experience of flagging these issues may not be familiar with how to address these legal questions, and can end up costing you much more in money, time, and headache.

    Another thing you may want to look for when considering a bankruptcy lawyer is whether they have experience in other legal matters, like real estate or business. This may come in handy because, often, bankruptcy issues are intertwined with other legal issues. Someone that can understand how these different issues may intertwine can be really helpful. 

    Do You Need a Certain Amount of Debt to Hire a Bankruptcy Lawyer in Queens?

    Fortunately, there is no minimum amount of debt that you need to have to file bankruptcy. Whether you have $1,000 in debt, or $1,000,000 in debt, you can choose to file bankruptcy.  

    This may become an issue with many low-income people. Often times, low-income people have rather straightforward bankruptcy cases, but it may be hard to come up with the cost to hire an attorney when compared to the amount of unsecured debt they have. (For instance, someone on limited financial means may have $10,000 in debt that they are struggling with, but it will cost money to hire an attorney to file bankruptcy.) The bankruptcy filing cost alone is over $300.

    In these cases, they may want to look for not-for-profits or other organizations to help with free or low-cost bankruptcy assistance and bankruptcy services.

    If being able to pay a lawyer is not the issue, then hiring a bankruptcy attorney makes a lot of sense. A bankruptcy lawyer can often offer quick evaluations to people, and determine who are eligible clients.

    What Do Bankruptcy Attorneys in Queens Cost?

    Unfortunately, there's no single answer for this. Every bankruptcy lawyer has their own fees for taking on these cases. Some attorneys charge for initial consultations and telephone consultations, and others don't. Some charge for post bankruptcy things, like sending copies of documents, while others (like me) don't.

    If you're filing for bankruptcy, the best way to find out what bankruptcy lawyers in Queens will cost is to contact the different bankruptcy law firms you come across, whether by phone, email, or however else they allow for contact. 

    For instance, here at the Law Office of Richard Kistnen, if you call to learn more about bankruptcy, I ask to do a quick 5-minute evaluation to see whether bankruptcy is a good fit for you. If you email me, I will ask to schedule a phone call to get a better sense of the case relatively quickly.

    Do Bankruptcy Lawyers in Queens Have Experience in Other Areas of Law, Like Real Estate or Business?

    I will say this as an experienced bankruptcy lawyer. I and many other attorneys do have experience in other areas of law. As I mentioned before, while having experience and familiarity with the bankruptcy laws may be a good start, it's also very helpful to have experience in other areas of law, like real estate and business. Issues in those areas often arise in actual bankruptcy law practice.

    Are You Ready to Hire a Bankruptcy Lawyer in Queens?

    Unfortunately, many people look at bankruptcy as their "final option" when they've reached a dead end. Reality is that the more you wait to take action on getting out of debt, the likelihood it becomes a more complex bankruptcy process.

    If you're struggling to pay your debts, whether they are medical debts, credit card debts, unsecured loans, or if you're dealing with a lawsuit, repossession, or wage garnishment, you should definitely get in touch with a bankruptcy lawyer. Here at the Law Office of Richard Kistnen, we provide competent and affordable bankruptcy service to people so that you can get out of debt and get the financial fresh start you deserve.
