1. Author: Cara O'neill, Attorney
2. Will I be able to erase all of my debt in bankruptcy? The lawyer will explain that you'll be able to "discharge" or eliminate credit card balances, medical and utility bills, personal loans, back rent, and more in bankruptcy.
3. Will I lose property in bankruptcy? Bankruptcy lawyers also want to know if you have property you don't want to lose in bankruptcy. Common examples include homes, cars, boats, sporting equipment, and valuable family heirlooms.
4. Should I file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy? You'd think this would be the first question you should ask, but in reality, a bankruptcy lawyer can't answer this question without discussing your property and debt type first—and you'll still need to explain how much you make.
5. When will you file my bankruptcy case—and when will it be over? A bankruptcy lawyer will explain how the bankruptcy process works. For instance, you'll need to provide detailed financial information before the bankruptcy lawyer can prepare your paperwork, and you'll need to review and sign the completed bankruptcy forms, so your availability and cooperation will also be a factor.
6. How much will the lawyer's retainer and bankruptcy filing fee cost? The attorney will explain the total amount you'll have to pay. The court filing fees are currently $338 for a Chapter 7 case and $313 for Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

5. How Much Does Bankruptcy Cost? If you’re thinking about bankruptcy, you are likely financially strapped. Before moving forward with any type of bankruptcy, you should try to get an accurate idea of what the entire process will cost.
6. How Long Does Bankruptcy Take? You’ll want to know how long it will be before your debts are wiped clean. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy follows a fairly short timeline – you could potentially receive your discharge in a few months.
7. Do You See Any Potential Problems with My Case? Each bankruptcy case is different, and they all have their own issues. While reviewing your case, the bankruptcy court might see what they consider “red flags” in financial decisions that you thought weren’t a big deal.
