Free Bankruptcy Book

Bankruptcy Basics” is a free book prepared by the Bankruptcy Judges Division and the Administrative Office of the United States Courts as part of their Public Information Series. It is not prepared by the Bankruptcy Law Office of Walter Metzen.

 
This book should be used as a general overview of the bankruptcy process and not as specific legal advice. This book is not a replacement for the advice of a competent bankruptcy attorney, a fact this bankruptcy book itself states in its introduction. The Bankruptcy Law Office of Walter Metzen provides a free Bankruptcy attorney consultation, during which  you will be provided information based on your specific circumstances and current bankruptcy laws. Feel free to contact us by telephone at (800) 398-3328 or via email if you have any questions concerning the materials or filing for bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy Basics
      FREE BANKRUPTCY BOOK

 

 

The Michigan Bankruptcy Law Office of Walter Metzen, offers each prospective client a free initial consultation to discuss your financial concerns as well as the possible need to file a petition for relief under the United State Bankruptcy Code. The purpose of the initial consultation is to inform you about the bankruptcy process in Michigan, whether you should file a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 and how the United States Bankruptcy Code is designed to protect most if not all of your assets through exemptions.  In an effort to make the free consultation more productive, we ask that you bring certain financial information to the meeting, or better yet, complete and send the online Michigan Bankruptcy Consultation Form.



 

The list of creditors must be complete. It must include ALL of your creditors (including family members, taxes, car loans, mortgages and leases), in one column and the amount owed in the adjacent column. The monthly budget should contain a complete breakdown of your income and expenses.

 
In addition to the above, be prepared to provide our office with dollar values for certain assets, including your home (if you own), your vehicles, and any other substantial assets, whether real property or personal property. By providing us the opportunity to review your monthly budget and to gain some understanding of the value of your assets and how much you owe to your creditors, we will be better able to assess your situation and advise you appropriately. You may schedule an appointment by either completing the Michigan Bankruptcy Consultation Form, calling our offices directly at (313) 962-4656 or by requesting an appointment via email.
