COVID-19 AND BANKRUPTCY

By Cynthia Podis, Bankruptcy Lawyer, Middle Tennessee

As Tennesseans and the world struggle with the realities of the Covid 19 virus, the Court system has deferred in person hearings on most matters for a while. However, as we shelter in place we see the bills stacking up for our friends and neighbors. Especially when only “essential services” are allowed to go to work. Many restaurants, hotels, bars, stores and other employers are forced to lay off employees indefinitely for lack of work. We understand not all employers can allow their employees to work from home. We hope the economic stimulus package and unemployment will help the economic blows our friends and neighbors are suffering now and in the coming weeks.

However, we realize the bills will continue to pile up. If you are without savings to weather this Covid storm, know that bankruptcy can help. Chapter 13 cases can be filed and defer the first payment when necessary. Chapter 7 attorney fees can be paid in installments. We are offering appointments via Skype, Facebook Chat and telephone to help our clients manage social distancing. We are disinfecting all surfaces in our office and working in masks and gloves when necessary. We are all in this together. We look forward to helping you figure out your Bankruptcy options as this becomes necessary. Please call us to set a free appointment to help you decide if a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy would help.
