Bankruptcy in Florida: How fast can I file?

14 Apr Bankruptcy in Florida: How fast can I file?

Although there are many issues to consider prior to filing bankruptcy in Florida, one of the most important issues is timing the filing of the bankruptcy petition and schedules correctly.

Sometimes, the debtor is advised to wait to file for bankruptcy protection; however, a debtor may need to file for bankruptcy protection quickly to prevent a repossession, foreclosure or some other imminent event, like an eviction.

Additionally, by filing the bankruptcy petition at a certain time, the debtor may be able to gain a strategic advantage. Your individual circumstances will dictate the time of filing.

In almost all circumstances, a bankruptcy petition can be filed quickly provided that you have complied with the United States Bankruptcy Code, the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure and your Local Rules. Most importantly, do not forget the credit counseling requirement.
