The Chapter 7 bankruptcy process can be very fast, usually lasting only about ninety days. Some examples of debts that can be eliminated in this type of bankruptcy are credit cards, medical bills, payday loans, deficiencies on secured property, and personal loans. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a five year payment plan, where you pay back some or all of your debts back over sixty months. Depending on your budget, you may pay back all or none of your unsecured creditors in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy and it can help you avoid a foreclosure, stop a garnishment, avoid a repossession, and even restructure certain debts like your vehicle loan, student loans, or tax debts. Give our bankruptcy lawyers a call today for a consultation and let us answer any questions you may have about the bankruptcy process.
Family Law & Divorce Lawyer
If you are considering filing an uncontested divorce anywhere in the State of Alabama, then our divorce lawyers can help you. We are currently charging $290 for simple uncontested divorces without minor children and $390 for uncontested divorces with minor children of the marriage. Our Alabama divorce lawyers will work with you to ensure that your uncontested divorce goes as quickly and easily as possible.
Although we can handle your cheap and simple uncontested divorce, our lawyers also handle other family law matters such as contested divorce, default divorce, divorce modifications, petitions for contempt or Rule Nisi petitions, petitions for custody, petitions for child support, LLC Creation, Probating a Will, Living Wills, Power of Attorneys, Last Will and Testaments, Name Changes, Deeds, and adoptions. Many of these services are much more expensive than an uncontested divorce and require something called a retainer to be paid up front. If you call our family law and divorce lawyers today we can give you a quick consultation over the phone and can usually quote you a retainer fee the same day you call. So call us today and our Alabama licensed attorney will be happy to answer any questions you may have about your divorce or other family law matter.
The term personal injury can include many different areas of law, including: auto accidents, trucking accidents, slip and fall incidents, nursing home negligence and elder abuse, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, accidents at home, premises liability, dog bite cases, and other injuries where someone is harmed by the negligence, breach of duty, or carelessness of another person or entity. These types of claims can involve different laws that need to be reviewed by our Alabama personal injury lawyers.
To establish a personal injury claim, the Plaintiff must show that the Defendant acted in a negligent way that caused the injuries. Specifically, that the Defendant breached a duty that they had, and the Plaintiff was injured as a proximate cause of this breach. An example of this is a car accident where a driver of a vehicle has to obey all motor vehicle laws and drive in a reasonable manner. If you have been injured in an accident, then call our Alabama personal injury lawyers today for a free consultation in one of our offices in Montgomery, Anniston, Huntsville, or Birmingham. If a driver runs a stop sign then they have breached their duty and can be held for injuries that are caused by the accident.
