Oftentimes a bankruptcy attorney needs to not
only manage the law within the firm but also the business operations as well.
Most of the attorneys that I have spoken with tend to enjoy the law side of
things more than the business. A common choice for bankruptcy attorneys is WordPress.
Finding clients to work with may be one of the
most challenging pieces of running a law firm. One of the most important
factors to succeeding over the other firms is by standing out. Most times there
are many different ways of standing out. One way to stand out is by providing
something that most attorneys do not; a free bankruptcy calculator.
In this article, I am going to go through how
you can use our free bankruptcy calculator for your WordPress
When an individual faces a financial hardship
such as wage garnishment or foreclosure, they have
questions about bankruptcy. For some folks, bankruptcy is something they
thought that they would never be considering. With all that being said, these
individuals that have never sought debt relief or bankruptcy before need some
insight on what their best options are, costs, and how each option would affect
their short term and long term.
Our free bankruptcy calculators provide free
unbiased information regarding the costs, pros and cons, credit impact, and
other insight to help them make the most informed decision.
You may be wondering about the differences between Chapter 7 vs Chapter 13 bankruptcy. A
bankruptcy calculator will be able to help the client understand key
differences between both options.
As you may already know, one of the most
common questions for someone exploring a Chapter 13 bankruptcy is, “What will
my Chapter 13 plan payment look like?”. After filling out forms and getting a
good idea of what their total income, expenses, allowable, etc. look like, the
client finally gets a decent estimate of their Chapter 13 plan payment. Our
free Chapter 13 bankruptcy estimates the debtors’ Chapter 13 plan payment using
the bankruptcy forms and the information they provided.
With regards to our Chapter 7 bankruptcy calculator,
folks are often looking to see if they may qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
While the means test has a few parts, our Chapter 7 bankruptcy provides the
debtor with an estimate of whether they are eligible to file a Chapter 7
The Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Calculator, as
stated before, is a great way for debtors to estimate what their Chapter 13
Plan Payment would be. When it comes to filing a Chapter 13, it’s imperative
that a debtor understands what their plan may look like, as it can help them
decide whether Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is right for them. These forms can take a
while to fill out, so utilizing a free calculator that uses the forms can be
beneficial to you and your clients.
This will be the first step to adding the
Chapter 13 bankruptcy calculator to your WordPress site. Sometimes you can use
a plugin that will help you add this calculator to your site, but if you are in
doubt, you can import the code directly.
First, understand where you want to put the
calculator in the article. You can either add a new post that will be covering
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy or you can add it to an already existing potential high
traffic article. The article would most likely want to either cover Chapter 13
Bankruptcy or the Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Repayment Plan.
After the first steps, you will want to add a
custom HTML field. With this field, you will be able to use the code of the
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Calculator.

Calculator, the process of adding the Chapter 7 bankruptcy calculator is quite
simple. Many people choose this option because Chapter 7 is affordable. Understanding

extremely important to their decision-making process.
