CVLS invites you to join our new Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Program! Bankruptcy is a powerful tool that can provide a family with a much-needed fresh start. However, few people know how or when to file for bankruptcy. CVLS volunteers will advise potential clients of whether bankruptcy is appropriate and, if it is, assist them in filing for and securing their bankruptcy. A typical CVLS bankruptcy case will involve filling out and reviewing the petition and schedules, using special software on CVLS computers, attending a creditors’ meeting, and reviewing and negotiating any reaffirmation agreements.
