The Bankruptcy Process

Understanding the Bankruptcy Process

The bankruptcy process involves several stages, beginning with an initial consultation with a California bankruptcy lawyer who can review your financial data and determine if you are qualified to file for bankruptcy.  Working with an attorney isn't a legal requirement, but is strongly advised due to the complexities and technicalities of bankruptcy law.  You must also decide if you will be filing bankruptcy under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  The next step is to receive mandated credit counseling from a government-approved organization.  Once you have completed the counseling, you can file your petition with the court. 

A trustee will be appointed form the U.S. Trustee's Office to review your petition.  The Trustee may also appear in court to ask you questions about the information contained in your petition.  Before discharging your debt, the law requires you to complete a financial management class.  Both the credit counseling and financial management class are conducted by telephone.
