If you are looking into bankruptcy you are probably doing so as a last resort. A common misconception about people who file bankruptcy is that they are in financial trouble because they have lived lavishly and spent money irresponsibly. This is not at all what we are seeing here in San Antonio (and not what we are hearing from other bankruptcy attorneys throughout the country). Most of our clients are experiencing financial difficulty because of circumstances outside of their control. Many have insurmountable medical debt from an illness or injury. Others have experienced job-loss during the recession. Military families often experience tremendous financial strain during times of active military duty. We know that financial stress can seem impossible to overcome. We can help you overcome these problems and move on to a brighter future.
Did you know? The origin of debt forgiveness can be traced all the way back to the Bible with the Jubilee year every five years and then to the cancellation of debts every seven years. In the United States, bankruptcy laws were enacted in the 1800’s. Although these laws have been reformed many times over the years, one thing remains constant, in the United States you are protected under the bankruptcy laws and you do not have to live your life in debt.
How much does it cost to file bankruptcy in San Antonio?
The cost of your case depends on the chapter (7 or 13) of bankruptcy you file, if you are married or single, and on the complexity of your case. We understand that if you are looking into bankruptcy, cost is a factor. Our fees are comparable to those of other law firms in the San Antonio area and we offer affordable payment plans. Call our office and we can answer your questions about attorney fees and court costs of bankruptcy. During your free consultation with the lawyer, he will go over the details of your case and let you know what it would cost for you to file bankruptcy, including attorney fees and court costs. While some law firms in the San Antonio area will advertise a flat-rate fee for bankruptcy, that can be misleading. When you see a very low flat-rate fee for bankruptcy, you have to ask if attorney fees and court costs are included in that price and what happens if your case is slightly more complex than the standard bankruptcy?
Are you being harassed by payday loan companies? Call us. We can put a stop to the calls and threats!
