Have You Used a Bankruptcy Attorney?

Hey Neighbors?

In these troubled times, where jobs are hard to find and sometimes hard to hold onto, we hear quite a bit about people filing for bankruptcy.  Now, I know it is possible to do your own paperwork and filing, but in a situation like this, it is best to have an expert on your side.  If you live in CA you might want to consider a Los Angeles bankruptcy attorney.

Now, realize, that a bankruptcy attorney does not guarantee receiving the results that you would like to see, but it sure makes sense to use an attorney who knows all the ins and outs of the law.  Someone who can knowledgeably guide you throughout the process.

First off, most bankruptcy attorneys have an evaluation or first consultation that they will do for free.  When you go, you will need to be able to tell them about the debts you owe.  This would include; credit cards, medical bills, any loans you have out, tax debts, any judgements made against you, overdue bills, and any other bills.  You will also need to let them know about mortgage or rent payments, car payments, and any other bills you may have. Are you up to date on your bills, or are many of them past due.  They will need to know if you are employed and how much you make.  Once he/she has all this information in hand, your attorney will then be able to advise you as to whether you should apply for bankruptcy, or to try and work out a feasible plan for working at paying off your debts.

A bankruptcy attorney will be able to help you decide between a Chapter 7, where they sell all your assets, including property to pay off your debts.  Or they may decide to go with a Chapter 13 where they work out a plan for you to pay off your debts within a certain time period, but you don't lose your personal property. Only an attorney with experience in bankruptcy court will be able to help and guide you in making these decisions.  Be sure to seek experienced counsel before making any decisions.

Have any of my neighbors worked their way out of debt?  What do you think about filing for bankruptcy?

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
