Summary

Since 1986, I have provided bankruptcy assistance under chapter 7 and chapter 13 to Colorado consumers and small businesses. As a federally designated "debt relief agency," my law practice helps people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code.

"Bankruptcy law seems like Chinese," a client recently commented.

My response? "Then I translate bankruptcy law."

There is a popular myth that bankruptcy is a simple solution. For many, however, the bankruptcy process can become complicated and overwhelming -- especially after the so-called "bankruptcy reform" of the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 (BAPCPA). In many ways, bankruptcy is a lot like probate law. Is someone permitted by Colorado law to write her own will or to file a bankruptcy petition for himself? Sure. Can that be screwed up big time? You betcha!

As a bankruptcy lawyer, I seek to balance high value, individualized representation with efficient, cost-effective service. Call me if you are interested in experienced bankruptcy assistance, counsel and representation under chapter 7 or chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code.

Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered

Q. Dismissed cases are coverted back to the debtors responsibiity?
A: What is being asked by this question is unclear. Are you asking whether creditors can resume collection efforts against a debtor after dismissal of a bankruptcy case? Yes, dismissal of a bankruptcy case terminates the automatic stay, which protects the debtor and property of the debtor from collection efforts by creditors. In general terms, it puts the debtor back in the position legally that he or she was in before the bankruptcy was filed.
Q. Do I need a lawyer to file a claim of exemption of writ of garnishment with notice form?
A: Colorado state court forms for garnishment, objections and exemptions are available at http://www.courts.state.co.us/Forms/Forms_List.cfm?Form_Type_ID=29 . Carefully read the description and appropriate forms on that web page. If you still have questions or concerns, consulting with an attorney licensed to practice in Colorado may be a good idea.
Q. I live in colorado, and im over-whelmed with debt, i want to file bankruptcy but not quite sure which form to file?
A: There is not one form to file for bankruptcy. The official bankruptcy forms for use in Colorado are available from the web sites of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado at http://www.cob.uscourts.gov/forms.asp and the U.S. Courts at http://www.uscourts.gov/FormsAndFees/Forms/BankruptcyForms.aspx. Even though a person can file bankruptcy without an attorney, it often is not a good idea. A warning on the web site for the U.S. Courts reads as follows: "It is very important that a bankruptcy case be filed and handled correctly. The rules are very technical, and a misstep may affect a debtor's rights. For example, a debtor whose case is dismissed for failure to file a required document, such as a credit counseling certificate, may lose the right to file another case or lose protections in a later case, including the benefit of the automatic stay.Bankruptcy has long-term financial and legal consequences - hiring a competent attorney is strongly recommended." http://www.uscourts.gov/FederalCourts/Bankruptcy/BankruptcyResources/Fil... With what's at stake, consulting with an experienced bankruptcy attorney licensed to practice in your state may be a good idea.
