Attending Debtors' Court is necessary when a debtor consolidates his or her debt into one lower monthly payment. This court appearance can be unsettling if you do not know what to expect. At Gina H. McDonald & Associates, in Birmingham, Alabama, our bankruptcy attorneys can offer the legal representation you need during the Debtors' Court process.
If you have questions about debt relief, please contact Gina H. McDonald & Associates at (205) 453-4497.
After consolidating debt, a debtor makes one payment every 30 days to a trustee. The payment schedule is typically between three or five years, after which most of the remaining debts will be discharged. The sooner you contact our office, the sooner we can begin working out a payment plan that helps you achieve debt relief.
Attending Debtors' Court
You will need to attend court twice. During the first court meeting, the trustee ensures you have made the necessary mortgage payments and the debt consolidation paperwork has been completed and filed correctly. The second court appearance is a confirmation hearing. A judge will review all paperwork to make sure it was filed in a timely manner. You must have made a minimum of two monthly payments at this time.
