Will I Have To Go To Bankruptcy Court?

The short answer to this question is that people who file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy virtually never go to court or even have to appear in front of a judge. In fact, most of our more than 15,000 clients at Kingcade Garcia McMaken are surprised at how smoothly the process of filing for bankruptcy can go when you work with an experienced attorney.

Working to help Florida clients manage their difficult financial challenges using the tools of bankruptcy, our law firm guides you through the process and helps you build long-term solutions to your toughest money problems. We make sure you don’t go into any meeting or appear before anyone without being fully prepared.

Let Us Represent You At Every Step

For most clients seeking protection under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you will only have to appear briefly at a meeting. This meeting doesn’t happen in court and doesn’t include a judge, and in the vast majority of cases it lasts only a few minutes.

We know that one of the reasons that people avoid bankruptcy is a fear of the process involved. Our primary attorney Timothy S. Kingcade is both an accomplished lawyer and a certified public accountant, and he takes pride in providing the support and preparation every client needs.

When you are facing a financial crisis, you deserve to have a professional on your side that will address your concerns while helping you protect your financial future. If a fear of having to appear before a judge is preventing you from discussing your case with an attorney, you need to know that no one actually appears before a judge in the vast majority of consumer bankruptcy cases.
