Dallas based bankruptcy law firm Recovery Law Group lawyers say that if you find yourself under unsurmountable debt and wish to get rid of it, then you should always consult bankruptcy lawyers and hire them to fight your case, or you could suffer a plight similar to the octomom, Natalie Suleman. Her bankruptcy petition filed in April included merely 5 pages of a normal typewritten bankruptcy petition along with a list of her creditors without mentioning the priority of the debts. Generally, a bankruptcy petition is 40-50 pages long. You are required to include details about your income, assets, expenses as well as all liabilities. The petition’s 1st page requires a summary of all these points. Inability to provide these documents makes it impossible to find out what you owe, what you own and which chapter of bankruptcy you can qualify for.
Since, Natalie didn’t hire a bankruptcy lawyer and filed incomplete paperwork, the legitimacy of her Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition was questioned. When you file for bankruptcy without a lawyer, the chances of getting your debts discharged is not as good as those with a lawyer. In fact, without a lawyer, chances of getting your cases dismissed without a discharge is more. Additionally, you also risk the seizure of your assets which could have been exempted. In case you are contemplating bankruptcy filing, it is important that you consult experienced bankruptcy lawyers at 888-297-6023 to discuss your case.
