Bankruptcy Fees Are Affordable
I’ll show you how most people can find the money to pay a bankruptcy lawyer. Bankruptcy clients are always broke. We lawyers know that. Yet, we need to get paid before we can get you out of debt. Here's some ways and means to make that happen for you.
Find out the cost for a bankruptcy lawyerLawyers are not all the same. You will find there are big differences between lawyers in what they know, what they charge, and their level of friendliness. Most bankruptcy lawyers won't charge you anything for a consultation. That's a generous offer. How many doctors will do that for you?
All bankruptcy lawyers are going to cost money. But the fees will vary, sometimes by quite a bit. But first, take advantage of the free consultations. You will learn alot about what what you need to know to get through this. Keep telling yourself the cost is a whole lot less than having to pay for the debts that you owe.
Stay mindful of the cost. You don't want to throw money away. But you already know that the cheapest lawyer is not necessarily going to be the lawyer that you should go with.
Most bankruptcy lawyers, (and I know dozens if not hundreds of them), keep fees down for their bankruptcy work. Most of us are not trying to get rich off of you. Lawyers don't get rich representing clients who are broke. At least as far as I know, they don't. (But if you think we can get rich off of broke people, please explain how to do it. I'd sure like to know.)
Tip One: Are you still paying debts that will be dischargeable in your bankruptcy?Are you still paying debts that will be dischargeable in your bankruptcy? If so, there is your answer. Your lawyer will usually be able to give you the OK to stop paying the debts. That same money should be enough to get your entire bankruptcy paid for in just a month or two.
Instead of paying hopeless debts for the rest of your life, pay for your bankruptcy. After that, the money you have been spending on payments can be yours for the rest of your life.
Tip Two: No extra money in your budget? Examine other resources.Have you saved a few bucks in your IRA account or 401k? If so, you can't make a wiser investment than getting out of debt. Withdraw a few bucks. Pay a lawyer. Solve your problem.
Expecting a tax refund? Most working people get a tax refund every Spring. This Spring, spend yours on a fresh start by paying for your bankruptcy.
Sell something. Lots of clients have an old car or motorcycle they don't need.
Friends and family. Won't they you loan you money for something that will finally fix your problem?
