We will review your assets and your liabilities. We will explain the bankruptcy process and answer any questions you may have.

Schedule an appointment with your Bankruptcy Attorney to fill out the paperwork.
When filing a bankruptcy petition, it is important that you work with an attorney who has experience in filing bankruptcy petitions with the courts. When you meet with an attorney at Berger, Fischoff, Shumer, Wexler & Goodman, LLP, we will prepare all of the necessary paperwork required by law.  You will never meet with a paralegal; always an experienced bankruptcy attorney throughout all steps of the legal process.  Once a modest fee is collected your papers are filed with the courts and you are protected under the Federal Bankruptcy Code.

Determine the nature of debt you have and who you owe.
It is very important to understand who you owe and how much you owe and whether the debt is secured or unsecured. To accomplish this, you can gather all your bills and run a credit report. On our website you can review a list of documents we ask our clients to bring with them when they meet with our attorneys.

Appear in Court.
When you file a bankruptcy petition you will have to appear in Court. For some this can cause anxiety. At Berger, Fischoff, Shumer, Wexler & Goodman, LLP, we are there with you in the courtroom and through all steps of your bankruptcy proceeding. The process is an orderly one and once it is completed you can start to rebuild your financial life.

Credit Counseling.
