Many people today are finding themselves in a situation in which they never expected to be. Due to the loss of a job, a sudden illness or other events beyond their control, they can’t pay their bills and each day they slip further into debt. If you have serious debt problems, bankruptcy may offer you the possibility of a fresh start.

At the law offices of Wolfenson & Ashkenazi, P.C., in Union and Cedar Knolls, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your financial situation and explore possible solutions to your debt problems. Lawyer Andrew M. Wolfenson and his team have over 50 years combined experience helping clients in northern and central New Jersey obtain debt relief.

How Will The New Bankruptcy Law Affect You?

Enactment of the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Law of 2006 has made it more difficult for people to file for bankruptcy protection in New Jersey and other states.

The changes in this law make the mere act of filing for bankruptcy more difficult and impose strict regulations, which must be closely followed by persons seeking bankruptcy protection. It is critical, therefore, to have an experienced attorney examine your financial position to determine whether such a filing would be in your best interests.

We do not simply rush a client into filing Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Rather, we attempt to formulate, wherever possible, alternatives for you to achieve proper long-term financial stability. Where filing for bankruptcy is the proper course of action, we offer to help you choose the right form of bankruptcy protection to preserve your property and give you the maximum relief from debts.
