What To Do And Not To Do During Bankruptcy

There are important things to do and not to do when facing a serious financial crisis or applying for debt relief through Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. One of the best reasons to work with a lawyer to resolve your debt crisis is because an experienced professional understands the pitfalls and opportunities available throughout the entire process.

At the Miami bankruptcy law office of Kingcade Garcia McMaken our respected lawyer has helped more than 15,000 Florida clients know how to take the right action and avoid the hazards. At our office we have a culture of care that puts the interests and needs of clients first. We take the time to help you protect what’s most important while getting relief from overwhelming debt.

Get The Guidance You Need

If you are considering filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you need clear and experienced guidance. The attorney you hire to help you can have a major impact on the results you get, including whether you are able to protect your home, car or property. Taking the wrong action, however, can seriously impact those results. There are important things not to do, such as:

  • Do not transfer assets or change titles
  • Do not repay debts to family members
  • Do not run up your credit cards
  • Do not choose to do nothing

When bankruptcy trustees can review transactions up to four years, things clients do leading up to filing can significantly complicate issues. Our primary attorney Timothy S. Kingcade is both an experienced legal professional and CPA with extensive knowledge of the financial challenges facing Miami families.
