Florida Bankruptcy Law Attorneys. At First Legal will explain the bankruptcy process, including the bankruptcy required credit counseling class you will need to take on the phone or on the internet before we file your bankruptcy chapter 7 or chapter 13 petition and the bankruptcy financial management class you will need to take after your case is filed to receive a bankruptcy discharge. We will review, determine and explain how debts are dealt with in bankruptcy and which debts are dischargeable in bankruptcy.
At First Legal you will receive the dedicated attention of an experienced team of qualified attorneys that will partner with you during the entire process and will be at your disposal whenever you have questions or concerns to discuss. We will do it an affordable flat fee.
To prepare your Chapter 7 case we will review your financial affairs including, but not limited to your debts, your property interests, your current and past income, your current and future living expenses, and transfers of property within the past year.
Your debts will be determined according to the U.S. Bankruptcy Code as secured, priority or Unsecured. Generally, non-priority unsecured debts will be discharged, except that there are instances when discharge is not allowed or denied, as for example debts associated with some type of taxes, fraud, misconduct, support, fines, student loans. We will inform you as to which of your debts are dischargeable.
Your property interests will also be categorized for scheduling pursuant to the U.S. Bankruptcy Code and analyzed for claims of exemption. This refers to removing property you own from the bankruptcy estate, and eliminating the Trustee from seizing that property for liquidation.
We advise you of problems you might experience before we file your bankruptcy petition. Once we file your case, you will have to attend a Creditors Meeting. This Meeting will occur approximately 30 days after the filing of your case. We will attend this Meeting with you and assist you in preparing for the Meeting.
