What is bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is a process whereby, a person has their debts discharged. To do that, we’ll meet with you and get a list of your assets and creditors. We then file a large petition with the federal court here in downtown Fort Myers. We file that, and an automatic stay is imposed as a matter of law, which means that creditors have to stop harassing you. We go to a meeting of creditors, where questions are asked and eventually, after that, you receive a discharge, which basically means that your debts are legally forgiven. If you have further questions, please give us a call.
