Bankruptcy Lawyer in Madison County
Our Huntsville bankruptcy lawyer is currently charging flat fees in attorney fees for Chapter 7 bankruptcy filings in Huntsville and the surrounding areas of Decatur, Albertville, Madison, Athens, and Scottsboro. We can meet you in our Huntsville law office or our law office in Madison, Alabama. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy can help if you have a large amount of unsecured debt and do not have any property that you cannot exempt or protect from the Trustee. If a Chapter 13 bankruptcy might be a better option then the attorney fees are less expensive up front since most of them are paid throughout the payment plan.
If you live in Madison, Limestone, or Morgan County then your bankruptcy hearing will most likely be held in either the Federal Courthouse in Decatur or the Madison County courthouse in downtown Huntsville. If you file Chapter 7 then there is one hearing called a Meeting of the Creditors. There is no judge at this hearing, only a local attorney called a Trustee. This hearing is usually pretty quick and easy if you have a no asset case. In Chapter 13, the hearing is called a Confirmation Hearing. This hearing is actually before the Federal Judge and can be more formal and intimidating. No matter which you are filing, give our Huntsville law office a call today to discuss your options.
Divorce Lawyer in Huntsville
Our Huntsville divorce lawyers are charging discounted attorney fees of $390 for simple uncontested divorces without children and $490 for uncontested divorces with minor children of the marriage. An uncontested divorce is where you and your spouse agree on all marital issues such as child support, custody, property division, and other such matters. It is mostly paperwork and as long as you sign all of the paperwork provided, then you will usually not have to go to Court at all. Call our Huntsville law office today for more information on what type of divorce you need.
If you and your spouse cannot come to an agreement then one of you will most likely be filing a contested divorce. This type of divorce can cost thousands of dollars in attorney fees. Our attorneys can sometimes work out some alternative options for other family law matters, but for contested divorces we require something called a retainer. Our Madison County uncontested divorce lawyer will bill hourly from this retainer for the work they perform and when the retainer is emptied you will have to refill it for us to continue working on the case.
If you need a divorce lawyer in Madison or Huntsville then it will likely be filed in the Madison County Courthouse in downtown Huntsville, Alabama. After the divorce decree is entered, one of the parties will need to file a post divorce petition to change or alter something in the divorce. Examples of this are Petitions to Modify a Divorce in Madison County and Petitions for Contempt. If you have any questions about a family law matter in the Huntsville area then call our divorce lawyers in Huntsville today for a consultation.
