This is part 1 of 10 in the bankruptcy process.
You might not need to declare bankruptcy. Bankruptcy may not eliminate all of your debts, so it’s best to speak with a trustee to find out if bankruptcy will solve your debt problems. A reputable trustee will explain a number of debt relief options for you to consider. They can refer you to a non-profit credit counsellor if you have additional questions about options that a trustee cannot help you with.
If the trustee does not refer you to a credit and debt counsellor for information about other options to help with your debt problems, contact us and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.
