Filing Bankruptcy in Minnesota With Assistance of Qualified Counsel

When people are in financially dire circumstances, they often believe that the quick fix solution to their problem may be taking out a second mortgage, obtaining a home equity line of credit or borrowing against a 401K or other retirement plan, withdrawing money from an IRA or even relying on their credit cards in hopes of being able to ride out what they hope is a short term financial storm. The reality is the “quick fixes” mentioned above often lead into further and deeper financial distress when instead the consumer should be considering filing for bankruptcy in Minnesota. Many consumers turn to the Internet for information and answers to their debt problems, but you should be warned that there is a lot of inaccurate information throughout the Web. Before you take action, it is a sound idea to consult with a knowledgeable bankruptcy lawyer who can explain the bankruptcy process, assess your financial situation and explain your options to help you obtain debt relief.

Common Bankruptcy Misconceptions

One of the biggest misconceptions about filing for bankruptcy in Minnesota is that you can just walk into any courthouse at any time and declare that you are bankrupt. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The United States Bankruptcy Code is a quite complicated set of laws. There are a myriad of procedures that you must correctly adhere to in order to be successful when filing for bankruptcy in Minnesota.

Another mistake people make is they believe that filing for bankruptcy in Minnesota on their own is easy and doing it pro se (on their own without a lawyer) will save them time and money. It really is not as easy as printing out some forms you find online, filling them out, mailing them in and then thinking your debts are no longer yours. People who choose to go this route may end up having their bankruptcy petitions dismissed, or suffer having sanctions levied against them because they are not compliant with the bankruptcy laws and necessary procedures.

Our experienced bankruptcy attorneys are here to help you navigate the process properly in order to ensure your petition is successful and smooth. Our goal is to educate you about personal bankruptcy in Minnesota and provide you effective representation so that you attain financial relief.

We perform careful analysis of your financial situation in order to help determine what solution best serves your needs.

By dispelling many bankruptcy myths for you and, if retained, making sure your petition, schedules and statements necessary for filing bankruptcy are accurate, timely and complete, we can help you build confidence in the process and in your future.
