Even if you believe that bankruptcy could help you reclaim control of your finances, it is only natural to be concerned about the process of moving forward. You will have a number of questions on your mind, including but not limited to:
- What type of bankruptcy is best? Chapter 7 or Chapter 13?
- How much does it cost to file for bankruptcy?
- What is the process of filing for bankruptcy in my state?
- What is the long term impact of a bankruptcy filing?
- Is there another option that makes more sense?
While the final decision is yours to make, there is nothing wrong with enlisting the help of others along the way. This includes your family, such as your spouse, as well as a bankruptcy attorney.
There are many benefits of deciding on bankruptcy with the help of an attorney. Even if you are unsure if you want to move forward, a qualified professional can look at your situation and help you make up your mind.

- Information on the pros and cons of Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. This is what you need to better understand what you would be getting into by filing.
