Do not delay. At Wootton & Wootton, we have a wealth of experience with bankruptcy law matters, and we will be there to walk you through the process from beginning to end.

How To File Bankruptcy In North Carolina

Bankruptcy involves four basic steps:

  1. Contact us: We offer free initial consultations, so you can sit down with an attorney from the firm to discuss your options. We will help you determine whether you qualify for bankruptcy and whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 would be a better option for you.
  2. Compiling papers: After the initial consultation, you will gather all your paperwork together involving current and past bills, your income and your assets.
  3. Return the papers: Once your paperwork is together, we will sit down together to go over all the papers, make sure everything is in order and schedule a time for signing the papers.
  4. Sign the papers: Usually within one day after you return your papers, we can have them organized for you and ready to sign.
  5. Get a fresh financial start: Once the papers are signed, we will submit them to the bankruptcy office and in a short time, you will receive a fresh start through bankruptcy.
