We’ve built a strong reputation throughout South Florida by offering clients creative solutions that stand the test of time. No matter what type of filing works best in your case, our attorneys will safeguard your interests effectively.
Each type of bankruptcy offers different ways to handle debt and has unique eligibility requirements. Factors that could affect your ability to seek certain types of protection can include your income, assets and bankruptcy history. Our firm has extensive experience with each type of filing and can also explain the features and procedures associated with all bankruptcy cases. At the outset of a case, an automatic stay is issued. This stops creditors from contacting you about your debt and halts related actions such as repossession, foreclosure or the cutting off of utility service. From there, we communicate with creditors and the court to finalize terms that address each party’s interests as completely as possible. Should a reorganization or repayment plan be put into place, our firm can help you follow the relevant terms up to the point where the remaining debt is discharged. In Chapter 7 proceedings, we advise you regarding types of debt, such as taxes, child support and student loan payments, that remain after the final discharge order.
