When Should I Consider Filing Bankruptcy?

Sound Advice About Bankruptcy Timing

When you file bankruptcy can make a big difference in the amount of property you can retain and the taxes you owe. For example, federal tax debts more than three years old are generally dischargeable in bankruptcy, so you may wish to time your bankruptcy filing to take advantage of this provision.

At the law firm of Minnillo & Jenkins, CO. LPA, we provide advice regarding these and other matters. If bankruptcy is right for you, we can help you time your filing to protect your assets and interests to the fullest degree possible.

In bankruptcy, as in other legal matters, the sooner you talk with an attorney, the better. In a free consultation, an attorney at our firm can review your situation and provide the guidance you need.
