Personal Bankruptcy Lawyers in Los Angeles
In the United States, individuals may be able to relieve all or part of overwhelming debt when they can no longer meet their obligations to creditors and lenders by filing bankruptcy. The majority of individuals will choose one of two options: Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which allows debtors to discharge all or part of their debt, or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, in which debtors repay all or part of their debt based on a payment plan.
It is easy to feel overwhelmed when you are facing the stress of job loss, medical bills due to illness or other physical setback, a business reversal, credit card debt, legal judgments, tax debts, housing costs, and other major life changes such as divorce. When you are overburdened with debt, it’s hard to see beyond the pain. At Weintraub & Selth, APC, our personal bankruptcy attorneys are passionately committed to helping you achieve the best possible financial outcome.
Many people fear they no longer can seek debt relief under the current bankruptcy laws, but this is not true. While the laws surrounding personal bankruptcy are complex, bankruptcy is still a viable alternative. We can help. With over 65 years of combined bankruptcy experience, our Los Angeles bankruptcy lawyers have helped people in almost every kind of financial circumstance protect their assets and eliminate debt by filing bankruptcy. We often take on cases that other bankruptcy lawyers have been unsuccessful with or have turned down.
Personal Bankruptcy and Divorce
Divorces often involve great financial stress, and it’s not unusual for one or both of the parties to file for bankruptcy protection. Filing for bankruptcy during divorce can also provide significant strategic advantages to the party filing for relief. We have used bankruptcy to bring to a conclusion difficult divorce cases that have dragged on for months or even years in the divorce courts. Our lawyers can also represent a spouse when their ex files bankruptcy during the divorce and the non-spouse is a creditor. We have also been engaged by divorce attorneys to collect the fees and costs they have been awarded by a divorce court judge. While the laws surrounding divorce and bankruptcy can be complex, we can help.
