Bankruptcy

bankruptcyIf you are thinking about filing for bankruptcy, but need more information or free legal representation, Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada has resources to help you.

WARNING: Many people file bankruptcy after an eviction judgment is entered in the hopes the eviction will be stopped. This is not true. In most cases, bankruptcy does not stop eviction if an eviction judgment has already been entered. If a judge has already entered an eviction judgment against you, please consult with an experienced attorney to determine if bankruptcy is right for you.

To apply for legal representation to file your Chapter 7 bankruptcy case, you must first attend the free Bankruptcy Class, at which time you will receive an intake form and information about what documents to bring to an intake at Legal Aid Center.
