Bankruptcy Attorneys in Anniston
We are currently charging $850 for attorney fees for Chapter 7 bankruptcy filings in Anniston and the surrounding areas of Calhoun County, Alabama. If Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a better option then the attorney fees paid up front are far less, with most of the fees being paid in the payment plan. A Chapter 7 can be a fairly quick and simple process, depending on your particular situation. However, you have to qualify to file a Chapter 7 and there are also certain property considerations when filing.
If you have a large amount of equity in your property that you cannot protect or exempt from the Bankruptcy Trustee then you do not want to file a Chapter 7 since your property could possibly be liquidated. In order to file any bankruptcy, you have to take an income based test to determine if you qualify to file Chapter 7 and not pay back your debts in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
If you live in Calhoun County, Cleburne County, St. Clair County, Randolph County, or Talladega County then when your bankruptcy is filed your Meeting of the Creditors will most likely be held in the U.S. Courthouse in downtown Anniston. Give our Anniston bankruptcy lawyer a call today to discuss your options.
Divorce Attorneys in Anniston
Our Anniston divorce lawyer is currently offering discounted fees of $290 for uncontested divorces without children and $390 for uncontested divorces with minor children of the marriage. An uncontested divorce is where you and your spouse are in agreement and there are no contested issues. The two of you sign some paperwork, we file it with the Court, and you get your divorce decree by email and mail. It is a cheap and easy way to get divorced without having any hearings.
If you and your spouse are not in agreement then you will likely be filing a contested divorce, which is much more expensive. The attorney fees in contested divorces are not flat fees, but are retainers that are paid up front and the divorce attorney bill hourly from this retainer until it is empty and must be refilled. The retainer fees up front for a contused divorce can range from $1500 to $10,000 or more up front, depending on the complexity and contentiousness of the matter, amount of assets involved, and location of the filing. Our divorce attorneys in Anniston can sometimes work out low flat fees for certain family law matters, but not for contested divorces.
Sometimes after you receive the divorce decree, you or your spouse might need to file a post divorce petition. Examples of such filings are Petitions to Modify Child Support, Petition to Change Custody or Visitation, Petition to find other person in Contempt of Court for not doing what they were ordered to do in the divorce decree, and other such filings to alter of change the prior divorce decree. If you have questions about a post divorce issue, then give our divorce attorneys in Anniston a call today concerning your family law matter in Calhoun County, Alabama.
