Bankruptcy Attorneys in Madison
We are currently charging flat fees for attorney fees for Chapter 7 bankruptcy filings in Anniston and the surrounding areas of Madison County, Alabama. A Chapter 7 can be a quick and easy process depending on your situation. However, to file it you have to qualify based on your income and there are certain property considerations as well.
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 Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This is because when a Chapter 7 is filed, a bankruptcy estate is opened up and the Trustee owns everything you own unless you have exempted it. If you cannot exempt your property then it could possibly be liquidated. In order to file either bankruptcy, Chapter 7 or 13, you have to perform an income based test to determine if you qualify to file Chapter 7 or how much to pay back in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
If you live in Madison County, Morgan County, or Limestone County then when the bankruptcy is filed the hearing called a Meeting of the Creditors will be held in either the U.S. Courthouse in downtown Decatur or at the Madison County Courthouse in downtown Huntsville.

Local Divorce Attorneys in Madison
Our Madison divorce attorneys are currently charging a discounted fee for simple uncontested divorces with or without minor children of the marriage. An uncontested divorce is where you and your spouse agree on everything and there are no contested matters. Both of you sign the legal paperwork, our office files it with the Court, and you receive a divorce decree shortly afterwards. It is a cheap and quick way to get a divorce without having to go to court.
If you and your spouse are not in agreement then you will be filing a contested divorce, which is more expensive. The fees in contested divorces are not a set amount. You pay something called a retainer and the attorney bills hourly out of that until it is gone. At that point you have to refill the retainer so the attorney can continue billing and working on your case. You basically pay the divorce attorney on an hourly basis. The retainer fees up front for a contested divorce are thousands of dollars but exactly how much depends on the complexity and contentiousness of the matter, amount of assets involved, and where you are filing. Our divorce attorneys in Madison can also work out alternative fee arrangements sometimes for certain family law matters, but not for contested divorces.
Sometimes after you receive the divorce decree, one party might need to file a post divorce petition. Examples of such filings are Petitions to modify the old agreement or to hold the other party in contempt of court for not doing what they were ordered to do. If you have questions about changing or enforcing the prior decree then give our Madison law office a call today.
