The COVID-19 Pandemic has negatively impacted the finances of many individuals and families. Chapter 7 Bankruptcy relief may be able to give you a "Fresh Start".

You can still file your Chapter 7 Bankruptcy case while abiding by social distancing protocols and the Governor's Executive Orders. At Brown Paindiris & Scott, LLP our attorneys are equipped to prepare, review, and file your Chapter 7 Bankruptcy case with little to no in-person contact. We can conduct your initial free consultation via phone or Zoom video conference. We can then transmit to you a Document Request List and Questionnaire either via email or US Mail. Once you return the completed Questionnaire and required documentation, we can prepare your bankruptcy petition and schedules. We are then able to send these documents to you electronically and review them with you over the phone. The Bankruptcy courts are accepting filings electronically and have waived the requirement for a physical signature. We are able to sign your petition electronically and transmit it electronically to the court. Under normal circumstances you would then be required to attend a 341 "Meeting of Creditors" at the court. However, these meetings are now being held telephonically to limit personal interaction.

If you have been economically impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic and are unable to pay your unsecured creditors, contact the attorneys at Brown Paindiris & Scott, LLP to discuss whether you are eligible for a "Fresh Start" through a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.
