Filing Bankruptcy Process

If you have fallen into debt, are struggling to make ends meet and asking yourself “should I file for bankruptcy?” let an experienced consumer bankruptcy attorney help you answer the tough questions. Allan Dunaway has offices in Louisville and Jeffersonville and is here to help.

At the Law Office of Allan E. Dunaway PLC, serving clients in the Louisville metro area and Jeffersonville, Indiana, our law firm’s compassionate, confidential representation begins with a free initial consultation.

Our clients meet with Allan and speak with him privately about their financial situation. You will never be handed off to anyone else – you will meet with an actual lawyer with almost 20 years’ experience in helping people just like you. Allan is your lawyer — and will be with you every step of the way. He listens carefully to your needs, offers facts and legal options available to you, and works to take the embarrassment and intimidation out of filing for bankruptcy.

In our years of service to clients throughout Kentucky and Indiana, we have seen many financial situations and helped many people from all walks of life. We understand how people can get into financial trouble for reasons that are beyond their control. Meanwhile, harassing creditors do everything they can to add to your suffering and misery; in fact, they often prey on it. We are here to stand up for you, repair your finances and restore your dignity — a quality that debt collectors can never take away. Our law firm is on your side.

We Have The Bankruptcy Facts You Need

In your initial consultation, Allan will explain the positives and negatives of Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy as they relate to your specific circumstances. There is no such thing as “one size fits all” when it comes to bankruptcy – and don’t be fooled by bankruptcy advertisements that say otherwise. After you have weighed your bankruptcy options, we let you decide if you’d like to file and, if so, under which bankruptcy chapter.

In general, we guide you to the approach that is best for you and your family.

If your situation is urgent, such as in the case of wage garnishment or imminent foreclosure, we may be able to have your case ready to file within 24 hours. This personalized attention is vital because the “automatic stay” of creditor action takes effect immediately upon filing a bankruptcy case, and can stop foreclosure on your home, repossession of your motor vehicle, garnishment of your wages and other forms of creditor harassment.

Throughout the bankruptcy process, we are always available to give you his insights by phone or email, or in follow-up consultations whenever necessary.
