Bankruptcy law can be confusing and complex. Our experienced attorneys will protect your interests, explain your options, and minimize the chance for errors or missteps in your filing.
The Process of a Bankruptcy Case – What to Expect
The first step in a bankruptcy case is the initial consultation with an attorney and a paralegal at our Jacksonville office. There is no cost or obligation for this first visit, which normally lasts 45 minutes to an hour. We will take a detailed look at your situation. Your rights and options will be explained. And we will help you come up with a plan of action.
If you decide to retain us to represent you, your next appointment will be with the bookkeeping department, where you will pay a down payment and open a file.
We will help you analyze your eligibility for different forms of debt relief and advise you on which form of relief will most likely be beneficial to you. We will also help you get an appointment with a credit counselor for your pre-bankruptcy credit counseling briefing.
We will give you a specific homework assignment: gathering the financial records, documents, and other information you will need as part of your bankruptcy filing.
You will appear at the Federal Courthouse about 40 days after filing your bankruptcy for the Meeting of Creditors (also called the 341 Meeting). One of our attorneys will be with you at the meeting. If you are in a Chapter 13, there will be another court appearance for you a few months after the Meeting of Creditors.

At the Bankruptcy Law Firm of Lansing Roy, P.A., we not only help you navigate the bankruptcy process, but we also offer assistance and services to help you emerge from bankruptcy with a stronger financial footing.
