INDIANAPOLIS BANKRUPTCY LAWYER FAQ’S
HOW MANY INDIANAPOLIS BANKRUPTCIES ARE FILED EACH YEAR?
Currently, there are approximately 15,000 bankruptcy cases filed each year in the Indianapolis Bankruptcy Court (the Southern District Indianapolis division). This number has fluctuated over the past ten years with the numbers approaching the 20,000 cases per year mark near its maximum. This is not ALL the bankruptcy cases filed in Indiana because there are two districts and divisions within these districts. Basically at this time then, there are about 15,000 bankruptcies filed in central Indiana each year.
ARE ALL THESE 15,000 CASES FILED BY AN INDIANAPOLIS BANKRUPTCY LAWYERS?
The vast, greater majority of these cases are filed by Indianapolis Area Bankruptcy Lawyers. It is rare to see non-attorneys file Indianapolis bankruptcy cases. The reason why is because it is VERY difficult to understand and operate the requirements of the bankruptcy system – at least without any danger of making costly mistakes. Many cases that are filed “pro-se” through petition preparers or software will lose significant assets or will even be dismissed. These “pro-se” filers cannot figure out how to meet the bankruptcy administrative requirements. The cost of hiring a Indianapolis bankruptcy lawyer (especially at our office) is usually much less than risking Indianapolis Bankruptcy on your own. Do not trust online non-attorneys who claim to have all the answers. They could end up creating a mess for you if you live in Indianapolis!
HOW WILL MY LAWYER FILE BANKRUPTCY IN INDIANAPOLIS?
All bankruptcy cases filed in the greater Indianapolis area must be filed through the Federal Courthouse located in downtown Indianapolis at 46 E. Ohio Street, Indianapolis, IN 46204. These cases are usually filed electronically where your court costs of either $335 for Chapter 7 cases or $310 for Chapter 13 cases will also be paid electronically. Your Indianapolis Bankruptcy Lawyer will review with you and then produce all the required schedules and documents to file under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
IF I HIRE AN INDIANAPOLIS BANKRUPTCY LAWYER, CAN I HAVE HIM GO TO THE COURT MEETING INSTEAD OF ME?
Your Indianapolis bankruptcy lawyer will go WITH you to your bankruptcy meeting, but you must still attend this meeting. When you go to the meeting (which occurs about 30-40 days after the bankruptcy case is filed), you will be required to present your Driver’s License and Social Security Cards to identify yourself. Then, you will have to answer some basic financial questions. Do not worry: your Indianapolis bankruptcy lawyer is required to prepare everything necessary for the meeting to make it an easy process for you.
HOW MUCH DO INDIANAPOLIS BANKRUPTCY LAWYERS CHARGE?
Generally, the approximate average fee that Indianapolis Bankruptcy Lawyers charge for Chapter 7 is about $1200-$1500 for their attorney fee on the case. You also will need to pay the $335 court cost.
However, many other Indiana and Indianapolis Bankruptcy Attorneys will charge as much as $1800 to $2500 for a “normal” Chapter 7 bankruptcy on the high end of the fee spectrum. The more affordable end of the spectrum on Indianapolis bankruptcy attorneys is usually when they charge less than $1000 on attorney fees. These attorneys usually stay around $750-$1000. Some Indiana bankruptcy lawyers will charge even less at limited times but usually only on pro-bono, charity cases.
WHY SHOULD I GO TO AN INDIANAPOLIS BANKRUPTCY LAWYER INSTEAD OF JUST A GENERAL PRACTICE LAW OFFICE?
Although it is not universal across the board, many times you can find some more affordable bankruptcy attorneys near Indianapolis than in areas further away from central Indiana. The reason why many times cheaper Indianapolis-area bankruptcy attorneys can be found -such as Bymaster Bankruptcy Law Offices – is usually because of three reasons: 1) the Indianapolis lawyers attorneys are closer to the federal courthouse for their hearings, 2) certain Indianapolis bankruptcy lawyers sometimes focus on cheaper bankruptcy services because of the larger market, 3) the larger market (more people) allows more specialization in their office process which makes bankruptcy cheaper.
Another reason why you should consider an Indianapolis bankruptcy lawyer is because a general practice attorney may not have as much experience in bankruptcy as an attorney who does bankruptcy on a daily basis. Although many general practice attorneys do a very good job with their occasional bankruptcy case (although their fees need to frequently be higher to compensate them), your particular “general practice” attorney could run into some problems simply because of his or her unfamiliarity with the bankruptcy system.
