Bankruptcy Assistance for the Deaf, Blind or Disabled in New York City
The Americans with Disabilities Act signed into law in 1990 is a comprehensive set of laws preventing discrimination against disabled people. Title II of the ADA governs the US District Court System and the Bankruptcy Courts in New York City. No matter your disability the US Trustee must accommodate your bankruptcy filing, and both the EDNY and the SDNY have ADA liaisons designated to help. Most experienced bankruptcy attorneys in New York City have also worked with disabled clients in the past and will also be able to assist. Special requests for accommodation can be made to the court in advance of any scheduled hearings to ensure your needs are met and that you are comfortable at the court house. With the help of your attorney and the court itself you will be guaranteed the same due process and legal protections as any other bankruptcy filer in New York City.
If you are financially distressed and believe you could be a good candidate for bankruptcy protection don’t let your disability keep you from the debt relief you deserve. Filing bankruptcy is very involved, but with the help of an attorney it is not overly complicated. Disabled or not, many people delay seeking the advice of a bankruptcy attorney only to lose valuable assets, bank accounts and retirement funds that could have been protected if they had come to us sooner. Bankruptcy is not for everyone in debt, but finding out if it is right for you is quick and easy and should be free of charge if you find the right attorney. Like the courts, many firms including ours will also make special accommodations for disabled clients for their free consultation whenever reasonably possible.
Bankruptcy is not a guessing game. A qualified attorney will know the likely outcome of your case before you file. Rest assured that if you are underwater on your bills and overwhelmed with debt you will find the financial relief and fresh start you deserve regardless of any disability you may have.
