If you are facing overwhelming debt, it can be a stressful and scary experience. Having debt collectors calling you and harassing you can make you feel like your world is closing in on you. You may even start to feel like you have failed. If this is the situation you are facing, it is time to seek help. We see Wisconsin residents everyday that are struggling financially and we assist them with taking control over their financial lives.
Below are a few tips on how to get started on obtaining the debt relief you need:
- Retain the best lawyer for you. Not all law firms are the same. The attorney that your neighbor uses may not be the best fit for you. You should schedule an initial consultation with your lawyer and make sure he or she can answer all of your questions. Most importantly, make sure the attorney is somebody you feel comfortable with and that you can trust.
- Once you retain a lawyer, don’t be afraid to email or call him or her if you have questions about your case. Communication is the key to any successful relationship, including the one between you and your attorney. Remember, it is your case and you have a reight to know what is going on in it.
- If you file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, it is important to cooperate with the Trustee assigned to supervise your case. In other words, provide any requested documents, meet your deadlines and make your plan payment on time. The Trustee is a part of your life for the three to five years your case is pending, so you want to make things go as smoothly as possible.
