Filing For Bankruptcy in Alabaster
Our Alabaster bankruptcy lawyers are currently charging flat fees for attorney fees in Chapter 7 bankruptcy filings in Alabaster and the surrounding areas of Shelby County, Alabama such as Calera, Helena, and Pelham. In Chapter 13 bankruptcy the attorney fees are far less up front, since most of the costs are paid in the plan. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Alabaster can be a fairly simple and easy process, depending on your financial situation. To do this type of bankruptcy you have to qualify and there are certain property considerations as well. Let our Alabaster bankruptcy lawyer help you get your case filed today.
If you have a large amount of equity in your property that you cannot protect or exempt from the Bankruptcy Trustee then you may not want to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Alabaster, Alabama. If you have too much property you cannot protect then the Trustee could possibly take your property and liquidate or hold a sale. In order to file any bankruptcy, you have to perform an income based test to determine if you qualify to file Chapter 7 or how much to pay in a Chapter 13.
If you live in Shelby County, Jefferson County, or Blount County then when your bankruptcy is filed the one hearing you have to attend will be held in the U.S. Courthouse in downtown Birmingham. Give our Alabaster bankruptcy attorney a call today for a consultation over the phone or in our Alabaster law office.
Getting a Divorce in Alabaster
Our Alabaster divorce attorneys are currently offering flat fees for uncontested divorces in Shelby County, Alabama. An uncontested divorce is where you and your spouse are in complete agreement and there are no contested matters. As long as both spouses sign the divorce paperwork then our Alabaster divorce lawyer can file it with the Court. Once it is filed then you will get your divorce decree by email and mail about a month or two later. It is a quick and inexpensive way to get your divorce without going to court.
If both spouses are not in agreement then you will need to file a contested divorce, which costs much more. The Alabaster divorce attorney fees in contested divorces are not a single flat rate. A retainer is a lump sum paid up front that the divorce attorney in Alabaster bills hourly out of until it is used up and must be refilled. The retainer fees up front for a contested divorce are thousands of dollars up front, depending on the complexity and contentiousness of the matter, amount of assets involved, and location of the filing. Our divorce attorneys in Alabaster can sometimes work out low flat fees for some family law matters, but not for contested divorces.
Sometimes after you receive a divorce decree, you might need to file a post divorce petition in Shelby County. Examples of such filings are Petition to Modify a divorce in Shelby County, a Petition for Contempt of Court, and other such filings to alter or change the prior divorce decree. You may also want help getting a new last will & testament or other probate matters too. If you have questions about any such legal matters, you can call our divorce attorneys in Alabaster today about your family law case.
