For every bankruptcy filing, our office sets up a filing appointment for our clients to come into the office and sit with us as we prepare the Bankruptcy Petition and Schedules, review the final product and sign off on the various dotted lines. For years this has forced an arguably undue burden on many of our clients. If you are married with kids and competing work schedules, it’s often not easy to get both of you into a lawyers office for two hours no matter how much you would like to. Add unreliable, expensive babysitters and long commutes in traffic and getting in can often take a series of missed and reset appointments and frustration for clients and lawyers alike. We think we have come up with a solution.
We can now do a filing appointment remotely. Instead of sitting across a table from one of our attorneys, answering questions and waiting form to be printed out for your signature, you can now see the petition being developed online in the comfort of your own home. All it takes is internet access and a phone line and we can go over everything in greater detail than you ever could in our office. It’s the difference between being answering a series of questions and then being handed a finished product to sign and actually watching every section get produced. The actual appointment isn’t any shorter, but you don’t have to drive anywhere to do it.
If you have any questions at all about Bankruptcy or remote filing appointments, please feel free to give me a call or set up an appointment at one of our Oregon Bankruptcy Law Offices in either Salem or Portland or at one of our Washington Bankruptcy Law Offices in either Seattle or Vancouver.
