Attorney For Bankruptcy

Mar 6th, 2014 | By | Category: Debt

No one wants to file for bankruptcy. However, the veracity of the matter is that often times it’s the best course of action. Beyond the stigma attached to it, filing for Chapter 7, Chapter 13 protection, or Chapter 11 can be the primary and most vital step in securing a fresh start financially. Actually there is one important step that comes before filing. That is putting your case in the possession of a qualified bankruptcy attorney. Bankruptcy laws are complex, and an experienced bankruptcy lawyer like the ones at Arizona law firm McGuire Gardner, P.L.L.C. can help you to see how these laws apply to you, and help you forge a path toward financial freedom and debt resolution.

Your attorney may review your case and recommend or not recommend to file a con-sumer bankruptcy chapter. It may be either a Chapter 7 filing or Chapter 13. Chapter 7 to liquify your assets and pay creditors; Chapter 13 to reorganize and arrange to pay creditors.

Can you file bankruptcy on Attorney Fees? If you are going through a divorce and have temporary orders that you have adhered to (you owe your spouse no monies and you owe no child support-all paid in full and current) can you file bankruptcy on Attorney Fees?

  • Maybe. Attorney fees are, generally, dischargeable, but the attorney may have a lien or the attorney fees may be part of the Marital Separation Agreement, and therefore treated like alimony or child support. Nearly all consumer bankruptcy attorneys offer free consultations. Take advantage of this to meet with one and get advice based on all of the details of your particular situation. You can find a referral at NACBA.org (National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys).

  • Yes. They are not shielded from a BK ( not like student loans, IRS debts).
