Bankruptcy: A Fresh Start From The Pandemic

Bankruptcy: A Fresh Start From The Pandemic

As 2020 thankfully ends and reports of vaccinations for COVID-19 with some, albeit not preferred, regularity make the daily news, a return to normalcy seems more certain than before in Utah and across the globe.

Anyone who has suffered financially because of the pandemic and resulting quarantine, which is the majority of Americans and Utahns, may benefit from setting specific financial goals in 2021 to rebound from the economic effects of the prior year.

Throughout this past year, almost every human being worldwide faced unprecedented, and previously unimaginable, challenges. The economic decline, limited access to services, and social isolation resulted as we realized how little control we have over certain circumstances. Despite a decline in services, bankruptcy remained a viable solution for overcoming any personal financial strife caused by the pandemic. Bankruptcy still is an effective way to solve monetary shortages and burdensome debt.

The result is that bankruptcy provides a fresh start. The experienced attorneys at the Morrison Law Group are experienced at explaining how bankruptcy may fit any Utah resident’s personal set of circumstances.

As Utah’s federal and state court systems have attempted to sufficiently address issues of public safety, Utah courts are conducting business via videoconferencing and communication by telephone. Because filing a bankruptcy case in Utah is entirely an online process, there are no restrictions on the ability of most Utah residents to file a bankruptcy case.

In 2021, the District of Utah Bankruptcy Court remains open during normal business hours and operational changes have been extended so that all hearings will continue to be conducted by telephone. Hearings, § 341 meetings, and other court dates are being held telephonically at all locations of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Utah.

Despite changes to courtroom procedures, there is no reason for any Utah resident who needs a fresh start to delay filing bankruptcy in 2021. Bankruptcy remains an excellent option for any Utah resident to obtain a well-deserved fresh start, especially in 2021.
