Why can't I use an online service to file bankruptcy or file a case on my own?

Be wary of websites that promise to fill out the bankruptcy forms for you or to file a bankruptcy for you when you are not meeting with a lawyer approved to practice law in Texas.  If something goes wrong in your bankruptcy, you may be on your own.  Personally, while observing creditors meetings or while sitting in bankruptcy court, I have seen cases go seriously wrong because someone filed a bankruptcy by themselves without an attorney or relied on an online service.  Bankruptcy is complicated and includes a lot of required forms and has strict deadlines.  Failure to timely file forms, correctly complete forms, and meet deadlines can result in your bankruptcy case being dismissed.  When a bankruptcy is dismissed your debts are not discharged and you no longer have bankruptcy protection.  If you refile, you must start over from the beginning, pay the filing fee again, and may face additional legal hurdles that would not have occurred had the case been filed correctly in the first place.

If you are struggling with your finances and need a rapid way to eliminate your debts, bankruptcy may offer the relief you seek.  I recommend using a qualified Fort Worth bankruptcy attorney.  As an experienced and dedicated Fort Worth bankruptcy attorney, I can offer advice on how to proceed based on your particular situation.  You and I can meet face to face to discuss your options.  I look forward to helping you become debt free.  To schedule a FREE consultation, please contact me at (817)-732-7590 or (972)-819-3861.  You can also send me an E-mail or complete the Free Case Evaluation.
