How important is being completely forthcoming about your finances and debt when you meet with an attorney to discuss Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 debt consolidation? The answer is quite obvious, extremely important. When you go to see your doctor, you must disclose your symptoms so that he may diagnose the illness and come up with a treatment plan. The same is true when meeting with an attorney to discuss how to deal with debt. It is impossible to come up with plan of action when the underlying problem or problems are unknown. It is understandable that you may be concerned about disclosing certain information, but rest assured information that you disclose to Bond and Botes will remain confidential. Many people are hesitant to disclose information about their spouse because they do not want to involve them in the problems they feel that they created. That is understandable, but an attorney needs this information to determine if the other person might be affected. We will not ask a question that is not relevant to diagnosing the problem and coming up with a solution. Confidentiality is the cornerstone of our foundation at Bond and Botes.
At Bond and Botes, we have been helping good people through difficult times for over 20 years. If you are facing overwhelming debt, lawsuits, garnishments, repossessions, and foreclosure, reach out to the firm with the experience. We offer a free initial face to face consultation with an experienced attorney and never a legal assistant or by a video conference call. Please call us today and let our receptionist set up your free consultation. A solution is only a phone call away.
