Work With a Knowledgeable Bankruptcy Lawyer and Find Your Path to Financial Recovery
Unexpected financial troubles can happen to anyone, and the situation can become extremely stressful when you are being harassed by creditors and threatened with collection actions. Bankruptcy is a legal process that protects debtors and allows them an opportunity to get a fresh start. However, it’s important to understand that there are many paths to get to that fresh start, and bankruptcy isn’t the right choice for everyone. Also, there are several different types of bankruptcy filings for both consumers and businesses. At Walters Law Firm, PLLC, we will assess your unique situation, advise you on your options, and represent you throughout the process.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: Liquidation procedure in which the bankruptcy trustee collects and sells the debtor’s non-exempt assets in order to pay off creditors. Remaining debt is generally discharged after liquidating non-exempt assets. In some cases, the debtor has no assets to liquidate, which typically results in a full discharge of their unsecured debts.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: A repayment plan for debtors who earn a regular income and have disposable income that can be used to pay off some or all of their unsecured debt over a 3-5 year period. In most cases, the amount of debt they repay is greatly reduced.
Chapter 11 Bankruptcy: Reorganization plan for small businesses that allows them to repay their debts while continuing operations.
Provide for a Loved One Without Affecting Their Eligibility for Government Benefits With the Help of a Special Needs Attorney
Many adults with special needs rely on government benefits such as Medicaid, food stamps, Social Security Disability, etc. Eligibility for these benefits is determined via a means test, which can be affected if the applicant receives money from a legal settlement or from inheritance. That can make it difficult for someone to provide financially for a loved one who has special needs without disqualifying them from receiving the benefits they rely on. A Special Needs Trust is an effective solution that allows you to pass money on to a loved one without impacting their eligibility for means-tested benefits. Work with Walters Law Firm, PLLC to design, draft, and fund a Special Needs Trust that meets you and your family’s needs.
