Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

Expert:  Legal Ease replied 8 months ago.

I am sorry you are in this difficult situation.

But I don't see an actual question here. What specifically are you asking?


Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I would like to do bankruptcy but I don't know how or how I can start. Also do I need a lawyer or I can do it by myself. I am at Edmonton, Alberta canada
Expert:  Legal Ease replied 8 months ago.

Do you have any assets?

Are you asking about a personal bankruptcy or a corporate bankruptcy?

You are on the lease personally, correct?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
corporate bankruptcy
the lease under the company name
also we have a loan from the bank
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
the loan under the company name
Expert:  Legal Ease replied 8 months ago.

That is good news.

Your next step would be to set up a consultation with a Trustee in Bankruptcy. You can do that for free in Edmonton.

Just google to find one or even more than one and set up a meeting or two to see which one you like.

They will then guide you through the entire process. It is not complicated and a great way to put all of this behind you.

Does that help as a starting point?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have.
