Bankruptcy and the Coronavirus

| Mar 19, 2020 | Bankruptcy Law |

The coronavirus ( COVID 19 ) has had an impact on bankruptcy and the bankruptcy courts just like it has had an impact on all aspects of life. However, bankruptcy remains a viable option to deal with its impact on financial circumstances both during and after the virus is gone. Both the Bankruptcy Courts and some bankruptcy attorneys are adjusting to the crisis. While some hearings are being rescheduled, the Bankruptcy Courts are also currently scheduling telephone or video conferencing instead of in person hearings. Attorneys are adjusting and also offering alternatives. While clients can still come into our offices in Maple Shade, Cherry Hill, Willingboro and Sicklerville New Jersey , we can also schedule telephone meetings or video conferences. In the event an in person meeting is required, for example to review and sign the bankruptcy petition and schedules, our large conference rooms allow for social distancing. If you are having financial issues during the coronavirus outbreak, you should contact an attorney.
