Bankruptcy Law Firm in Prattville
If you need more information about filing for bankruptcy in Prattville or the surrounding areas of Millbrook, Auburn, Selma, Wetumpka, or Montgomery then give our local Prattville bankruptcy lawyers a call today. Our Prattville law office is currently charging $850 attorney fees in Chapter 7 bankruptcy filings. There are additional fees such as the filing fee but the total costs for filing Chapter 7 bankruptcies with our law firm is around $1280 in most cases.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a quick and fast process that can eliminate most or all of your unsecured debts in about three months. In most cases you just have to go to one hearing called a Meeting of the Creditors (and in most cases no creditors actually show up) and answer a few questions from your Bankruptcy Trustee. You usually do not see a judge and only have the one administrative hearing in most Chapter 7 cases. It is a quick and simple way to get a fresh start if you can qualify and you have no land or other property that you cannot protect or exempt.
In order to qualify to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and eliminate your unsecured debts, your income for the previous six months prior to filing must be below a certain amount. If your average gross monthly household income for the previous six months prior to filing is about a certain amount, then you have to pass something called the means test. The means test is a complex budget that you would need our bankruptcy attorney to perform in order to see if you qualify. In general if your income is low enough you will qualify based on that alone, but if your income is too high then we can run the means test for you and see if you pass or not.
If you cannot file a Chapter 7 then you might want to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 13 is a payment plan that you set up through the Bankruptcy Court. Give our Prattville law office a call today and let our bankruptcy attorney counsel you through the process today.
Divorce Law Firm in Prattville
If you and your spouse have already reached an agreement concerning visitation, child support, property division, and other such marital issues then you may be able to file an uncontested divorce. Uncontested divorces are the cheapest and easiest way to get a divorce in Alabama. It is quicker and simpler since you have already done the hard work in negotiating and reaching an agreement. Since you did the hard work, the only thing for our local Prattville divorce attorney to do is to prepare and file the proper paperwork for the judge to sign.
We are currently charging $290 for uncontested divorces without children under 19 years of age and $390 if you have minor children of the marriage. There is also a filing fee that each county charges. You generally file in the county that you or your spouse reside in. You can call us today to find out the filing fee in Autauga County, Elmore County, or any other county in Alabama.
If you cannot reach an agreement, then a contested divorce will need to be filed. This is much more expensive than uncontested, and requires the payment of a retainer up front. This retainer can be thousands of dollars and is what the attorney uses to bill at an hourly rate as they work on your case. Give our Prattville law office a call today to get a retainer quote from our divorce lawyer in Prattville and a quick consult over the phone for free.
