Timeline of a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy begins when a Debt Advisors attorney files your petition for relief with the bankruptcy court. The court will enter an Automatic Stay order prohibiting most of your creditors from taking or continuing any collection or legal action against you. The harassing letters and phone calls must stop once your case is filed.
    • The court will mail notice of the bankruptcy to all of your creditors, assign a bankruptcy trustee to your case and set a date for your hearing.
    • Thirty to forty five days after your case is filed, you will attend the meeting of creditors. The court-appointed trustee will preside over this meeting. You will be asked to testify under oath as to the accuracy of the statements in your petition. However, most of your creditors will not appear at the meeting, and you will not appear before a judge. The meeting is very informal, and, in most cases, will last no more than five or ten minutes. Your attorney will attend this meeting with you.
    • The bankruptcy trustee will file a No Asset Report with the court.
    • You will then receive your bankruptcy discharge. The discharge is a court order that prohibits your creditors from collecting debts.

Under the 2005 bankruptcy code amendments, you must complete a financial management course before the court will give you the discharge. Mike and Chad can refer to an approved financial management counselor.

  • review rating 5  As a customer I was very glad with the level of service I received. I was both nervous and ashamed that I was going through the process of filing. My attorney was nonjudgmental, professional, and very knowledgeable. I had lots of questions and he patiently answered each of them helping me feel more confident in my decision making. I was unable to pay all fees up front and was happy to learn that there was a payment option where payments were deducted from my account until paid in full. Upon my final payment the process ran quickly and smoothly. I always felt like my best interest was at the forefront front the filing process, followup phone calls, reminder phones calls, the court date and discharge. I called the offices 3 years after filing and still, they were welcoming, supportive and informative even though I am not a current customer. This was the first step to me reestablishing myself as a conscious borrower and consumer.

  • review rating 5  A few years ago I found myself drowning in debt, after doing some research I decided I would get some help in dealing with that debt, so I reached out to Debt Advisors Law Offices. I was scared, nervous, and embarrassed that I had gotten to this point but after my first meeting with Debt Advisors I knew I was making the right decision. They made me feel comfortable and confident in my decision to move forward. The best part was it was all on my time, I felt no pressure from them which was amazing. They were always available to answer my questions and help me through the process. A couple years after my case closed, I reached out to get some information and within that same day they responded to me and remembered me! Truly a wonderful firm to work with!
