Who needs a lawyer regarding personal finance?
Anyone under financial duress may find the use of a bankruptcy or insolvency lawyer useful and likewise the help of a debt recovery lawyer.
Bankruptcy or insolvency lawyers (as they are known in Australia) can help determine if one is eligible to file for bankruptcy and will provide valuable advice on the conditions associated such as travel restrictions. They can also advise on Objections to Discharge (extend the bankruptcy beyond three years) or Offers of Composition which may result in bankruptcy annulment by a creditor.
Debt recovery lawyers can help you deal with aggressive collection agencies that may harass you or your family members on the phone or in person. These actions warrant the advice of a skilled debt recovery lawyer who can help explain your rights and decide the best course of action regarding your debt.
