There is no area of family law where quality representation is most needed than in the area of child custody. While there are general rules the courts will apply in every child custody case, one being the position that joint custody is in the best interest of the children, every case has personal and unique facts that may alter that general rule. This is why having a trusted and knowledgeable advocate in your corner is essential. Your unique and personal situation must be completely presented to the court in order to make a correct ruling.
Both the family lawyer and the represented party must do their very best as the relationship with your children is at stake. The right to custody and visitation will have life-long consequences for both you and your children. Our team of family lawyers will come alongside you and fight for the right judgement.

There are certain debts that a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy does not allow you to discharge. Some of these debts include:
1. Recent taxes2. Student loan debt3. Child support obligations4. Spousal support obligations5. Debts not listed in the Chapter 7 Petition6. Credit that was obtained from fraud7. Debts with co-debtors – your co-signer will be liable for the full amount of the debt unless they also file bankruptcy
If you are behind on your mortgage payment or car loan, a Chapter 7 will not bring you current. However, there may be other options available to you., like Chapter 13.
It is also important to keep in mind that a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy may not protect all of your assets. If you own multiple homes with a lot of equity in them or other valuable assets such as boats or vehicles without loans against them, the bankruptcy trustee will either sell the item and use the proceeds to pay some of your creditors, or negotiate with you to receive the cash equivalent of the asset. We can help you negotiate with the trustee if this situation arises.
If you find yourself in this type of situation, where you have unprotected assets that you want to keep, it may be better to do some pre-bankruptcy planning or look into a Chapter 13 payment plan.
