When Is the Best Time to File for Bankruptcy?

There is no single best time to file for bankruptcy, however a good rule of thumb for people to follow is that they should consult with an attorney as soon as it becomes difficult to pay the monthly bills in full. It is always better to be proactive, rather than reactive.

How Does the Homestead Exemption Work in Colorado?

The state of Colorado has a somewhat unique homestead exemption. Using this exemption, debtors who file for bankruptcy can potentially keep some of the equity they have built up in their homes, however whether or not the homestead exemption can be applied will depend on the specific merits of the individual case.

How Do 341 Meetings Work in Colorado Courts?
