You can find the best bankruptcy lawyers in your area through a referral from a lawyer you know, or by searching online. If you don’t have a lawyer to turn to, the state bar association has lists of local attorneys that can give advice about what’s likely legal and ethical in different situations.
Bankruptcy is also an option for people who owe taxes but don’t want to pay them – including child support payments. The IRS will help with tax debt if your income falls below a certain level — $12,000 for one person or $24,000 for two people filing jointly. You’ll get relief if it’s impossible or unaffordable to make other payments on time too.
