In the year 2010, 1.5 million Americans filed for bankruptcy protection under the US bankruptcy code. There is a growing need to educate filers on the steps necessary to file and the aftermath of filing. Although attorneys play a vital role in assisting and educating those in need, it is difficult for consumers to find accurate information without an attorney. This is what FileForBk.com aims to achieve, to educate the public.
The website covers topics such as chapter 7, chapter 11 and chapter 13 of the US bankruptcy code. Many Americans are confused about what chapters they are allowed to file under and under what circumstances. For instance, many individuals are confused about the differences between chapter 7, also known as "straight bankruptcy," and chapter 13, also known as "wage-earner's bankruptcy." It's these kinds of things that the public should be able to access without taking the costly route of speaking to an attorney. This is why FileForBk is one of the first sources of reliable and unbiased information on the process of filing for bankruptcy. Many other resources, like lawyers websites, may be biased towards the attorney's desire to get more clients. This is not a fair and accurate way for people to get information.
Other options include looking to government websites on the subject. These can be great websites but are often difficult to navigate and cryptic at best. FileForBk aims to supplement these resources by making them easy to understand and translate the information into easy to understand, plain-old English. The last thing someone needs while going through the stressful process of bankruptcy, is to become frustrated by not knowing the options.
One of the most difficult things about filing for bankruptcy is that consumers are unable to find a qualified attorney and one of the most difficult part about being a specialized attorney is finding appropriate clients. A great feature in the works for the website includes a service that will match consumers with attorneys based on their case, needs and location. This will help individuals get easily paired with the appropriate attorney if they decide that bankruptcy is the right choice for them. Different attorneys specialize in different areas of bankruptcy law, so it is important that consumers get in contact with the lawyer that can help them the most.
