How You Can Help Your Dad with His BankruptcyIt can be painful to watch your parents struggle with debt, knowing how much they have supported you throughout your life. You may have relied on your parents as you were starting your young adult life, such as continuing to live with them or borrowing money. You are financially more stable, but now your parents are the ones who may need your support. For Father’s Day, it may be time to repay your parents by talking to them about how you can help with their debt problems, including the possibility of filing for bankruptcy. Supporting your parents does not have to mean giving them money. There are several ways you can help them:

  1. Figuring Out Their Financial Situation: Before deciding whether to file for bankruptcy, it will help to have a complete picture of your parents’ financial situation. Your parents’ assets and debts have been building for years, and it may be difficult to see the complete picture if your parents are unorganized with their records. You can start by tracking down and organizing records of assets and debts, which may be a mix of physical and digital records. You may need the assistance of a financial advisor to tell you what records to look for and analyze your parents’ finances.
  2. Coming Up with a Budget: Whether you choose bankruptcy or not, creating a budget will be necessary as a long-term solution to your parents’ debt problems. Your parents may need help with this if they have never been good at budgeting their finances. Go through their expenses to determine whether there is anything unnecessary that they could cut. You can also consider whether there are assets they would be willing to sell, but you should hold off on selling assets if you are considering bankruptcy. By filing for bankruptcy, your parents may be able to keep those assets and eliminate their debts.
  3. Finding a Bankruptcy Lawyer: If your parents are considering bankruptcy, they should talk to a bankruptcy lawyer to learn more about the process. It is important to choose an attorney who understands the needs of people at your parents’ age and in their situation. You can offer to research bankruptcy lawyers in their area to find someone who you think would be a good fit for them. From there, your parents can contact the lawyer and set up an initial appointment, or you can even do that for them.

How to Find the Right Bankruptcy Attorney for YouWhen you are considering filing for bankruptcy, do not overlook the importance of who you pick to be your bankruptcy attorney. A good bankruptcy attorney can tell you whether bankruptcy is the right choice given your financial position and, if so, guide you through the process as smoothly as possible. Ensuring that you are able to discharge eligible debts and protecting your assets will be your attorney’s top priorities. How do you find someone who is not only a good bankruptcy attorney but the right fit for you? Keep these pointers in mind when you start your search.

Reviewing Your Options

It is easy to find the names of bankruptcy lawyers that work near you. Typing “Texas bankruptcy lawyer” into a web search engine will give you more results than you know what to do with. How do you narrow down your choices from there? First, your attorney needs to be someone who:

  • Practices the type of bankruptcy law that you need, such as consumer bankruptcy
  • Practices in the area where your case needs to be filed based on where you live
  • Has a track record of success with bankruptcy cases

Testimonials and referrals can point you towards bankruptcy attorneys who have good reputations. Talk to someone who has filed bankruptcy. If you have worked with an attorney in another practice area, ask them for a recommendation of a bankruptcy attorney. Visit online law directories and websites to see reviews and accolades that local attorneys have received.
