Can You File Faster?
Yes, in most cases we can file the same day you hire us. It is called filing an "Emergency Petition." However, be aware that there are risks to doing an "Emergency Petition" and we will recommend this only in extreme situations such as an imminent foreclosure or repossession, or significant wage garnishment or bank levy. Whenever a debtor files an "Emergency Petition," only the minimum required documents are filed. There are still numerous documents that need to be filed to complete the bankruptcy case. When an Emergency Petition is filed, the debtor only has 14 days to file the remaining documents. Failure to file the remaining documents will result in the bankruptcy case being dismissed by the court and loss of the automatic stay. So, before considering doing an Emergency Petition, make sure that you can get your attorney all of the information and documents needed to complete the filing.
