The pressures of financial hardship, especially during COVID-19, may lead to the need to declare bankruptcy. The process is complicated though, and in order to make sure you are filing for the right category of bankruptcy, you may need a bankruptcy attorney to guide you through the steps.

Bankruptcy is a legal means through which individuals and business can get relief from serious financial troubles. It also provides certain rights to creditors, allowing them a share of the debtor’s assets based on the priority of their claim to the funds.

Filing for Bankruptcy

Different types of bankruptcy are available for people in different circumstances.
