Can I File a Bankruptcy Case if I am Hearing Impaired?

The answer to this question is YES. The United States Bankruptcy Courts are in full compliance with The Americans With Disabilities Act. When a hearing impaired person files a bankruptcy case, the Court will provide a sign language interpreter for all required court appearances.

A debtor attorney can work easily with a hearing impaired client by utilizing tools such as a Client Information Worksheet and document checklist. If a hearing impaired client can complete the worksheet and checklist and then come in for an office consultation with someone who speaks sign language, the process can proceed smoothly. Most hearing impaired clients are aware of other important tools such as telephone interpreting services.

A disability is never an obstacle for a person to get a fresh financial start in the United States Bankruptcy Courts.
