What is the Bankruptcy Process?
Filing for Bankruptcy Protection in Oklahoma
With the changes made to federal bankruptcy laws in 2005, many consumers mistakenly assume they cannot file bankruptcy to eliminate their debt and achieve a fresh start. Although the process has become more complicated, you can still file bankruptcy, but it is more important than ever to have a skilled bankruptcy lawyer looking out for your interests.
At Dana McDaniel & Associates in Tulsa, Oklahoma, we understand that bad things do happen to good people. Despite how hard you have worked, you may simply be unable to get caught up, and bankruptcy may be your best option. We strive to help people find the relief and peace of mind that comes with debt relief.
Before Filing for Bankruptcy Protection
You need to determine the right course of action before you file for bankruptcy. A knowledgeable bankruptcy lawyer can help you determine whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy is the best option for you. Dana McDaniel will get to know you on a personal level and help you prepare for bankruptcy, including the administering of a means test and setting you up with the required credit counseling.
After Filing for Bankruptcy Protection
Once you file for bankruptcy, an automatic stay will go into effect. This requires that your creditors stop harassing you and removes the threat of wage garnishment. Throughout the process, we will be working with a bankruptcy trustee to examine your filing and set up the parameters for your bankruptcy. A meeting will be held with the trustee under both the (Chapter 7) process and the Chapter 13 process.
