Jupiter Bankruptcy Lawyer
Bankruptcy Hearing Jupiter, Stuart, and Port St. Lucie FL
Filing for bankruptcy is usually not an event most clients would ever considered before they come into my office. My clients live along the coast of south Florida in Jupiter, Stuart, Port St. Lucie, West Palm Beach and as far north as Vero Beach. Coming into my office, they may have done some cursory research on the Internet, but still have many questions and many fears. This is very understandable. Bankruptcy is a very big decision and should be discussed openly with a bankruptcy attorney. It can be difficult to select the right Bankruptcy Lawyer. In my opinion, your Bankruptcy lawyer should be professional, intelligent, and someone who is available and knows what is going on in your case.
Once a client has decided and can meet the means test requirements to file a chapter 7 Bankruptcy. There are many procedural bankruptcy questions most clients want to know. When will I go before the judge? When will this be over? Is it over when I go in front of the judge?
First and foremost, in most Chapter 7 Bankruptcy cases, you will never appear in front of a Judge. Once the Chapter 7 Bankruptcy petition and schedules are filed. The Chapter 7 Bankruptcy 341 hearing/meeting of creditors is scheduled. This occurs 20 to 40 days after the date the case file. My office is informed within seconds of the filing: the date, the time of the hearing, the trustee assigned to your case and the Judge that will oversee the process. The discharge is issued usually within 60-65 days of the hearing. The time table for most Chapter 7 Bankruptcies is usually 100 days or less from the date of filing.
I spend time with you to discuss what is going and explain the process. We discuss will discuss your schedules and schedule a meeting before the 341 hearing to go over your filing with you before you go to the meeting.
