Filing Bankruptcy during COVID19

The COVID19 pandemic has left many Americans out of work and struggling to keep up
with debt payments. Filing for bankruptcy is an option for anyone who has debt they can
not reasonably afford. However, the pandemic has led to several changes that you
should be aware of before you start the process.

How to File Bankruptcy During COVID19

With the restrictions put on social gatherings, you may find it difficult to complete the
bankruptcy process during COVID19. Seufert Law can help. The process can be
complete, but there are a few different rules we are all navigating together.

Virtual Meetings

We are offering video conferences to comply with safety guidelines. We can discuss
your situation and if bankruptcy is right for you. All you have to do for a free
consultation is go to our Website – and use the Video Chat menu to pick
a date/time that works for you online.
An email link will then be sent to you. At the
selected date/time you use a smartphone, tablet, or laptop or computer with a camera
and click the link and you’re in, no downloading of software is necessary. We will then
discuss your particular situation and questions and determine if Bankruptcy would help.

Electronic Signatures

Typically, you must physically sign your petition of bankruptcy, now we can do that via a
Video Chat.

Meeting of Creditors

Now the bankruptcy hearings are via phone conferencing, no attendance at the Federal
Bankruptcy Courthouse in Concord, NH
is necessary. You either participate by coming
to our office and we do this with you over the phone with the Court, or you can
participate remotely from your home.

Monthly Income

Your stimulus check and other payments issued by the Federal Government do not
count towards your income. You do not need to worry about these payments affecting
your eligibility to file for bankruptcy.
