     shutterstock_2151359099The prospect of filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy can be daunting. For those of us with high anxiety, it can push you to the far edge of your comfort zone, and beyond. Even for those with lower anxiety, the thought of filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy can be overwhelming. Unfortunately, there are ways to make a bad situation worse. These are two things you should watch out for when filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Minneapolis, MN. 

One, do not try to file Chapter 7 Bankruptcy on your own. It is a fool’s game. Solicitors of free or fee based software will suggest you can do this on your own. I wish you could see the faces I have seen from people who thought the same thing, only to have the bankruptcy cost them 5 times as much as lawyer would have because they don’t know what they are doing. 

     In law school, when we discussed even a lawyer representing themselves, we said the lawyer has a fool for a client. Bankruptcy lawyers are trained in bankruptcy law and neutral. They are paid to tell you the truth and steer you clear of potential land mines in bankruptcy, and there are a lot of them.

     Second, when you hire a lawyer use your gut. Unfortunately, there are some law firms who race to the bottom to be the cheapest law firm in the world. Those are not the law firms you should hire. If they don’t think their service has any value, why should you? I have seen law firms willing to take your clothing and furniture as collateral for their fees or suggest they can beat any price. A race to the bottom. Avoid these firms like the plague. 


     Instead, when the time is right, or when you are ready to get your life back, reach out to Minnesota’s most kind and helpful bankruptcy law firm by going now to www.lifebacklaw.com. You will be so thankful you did.
