When you come into the office for the free consultation, you will fill out a brief form. You will meet with an attorney and the attorney will perform a complete financial analysis. They will review your income, your monthly expenses and all of your bills.
Next, if you want to proceed with the case, it only takes $50 to get the ball rolling and open up a file.
When a file is opened, you will be given a questionnaire and paperwork to complete. You will also be given a document checklist. Once the paperwork is finished and the initial fees are paid, you will meet with a staff member who will guide you through the process.
At the next meeting, you wil review and sign the paperwork and the case will be filed with the Court. Overall, the process generally takes about 2-3 weeks. If you have an emergency, such as a foreclosure or threat of repossession, we can speed up the process.
