What Should You Consider Before Filing for Bankruptcy?

If there’s no way you can pay off your debts and you’re tired of creditors calling you for payment, filing for bankruptcy may get you the debt relief you deserve. When you contact our law firm, a skilled bankruptcy attorney will examine your financial situation to determine if filing for bankruptcy is right for you.

If it is, your bankruptcy lawyer will explain the differences between Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. They will then determine which debt relief option you qualify for, which debts are dischargeable, and which assets you can keep. You might be surprised how much filing for bankruptcy can reduce your financial stress and improve your life. Contact our South Carolina law offices for answers from a bankruptcy lawyer knowledgeable about bankruptcy law in this state.

What Family Law Matters Do You Need to Address?

If it’s clear that you and your spouse would be better off apart, filing for divorce may be the right decision. When you hire a family law attorney, you will get help handling all the details that go into divorce, from filing a petition with the family court to making decisions on important matters.

For example, if you and your spouse share marital debts and assets, you will need help with property division. South Carolina is not a community property state, which means the family court judge will divide marital property in an equitable way that can be challenging to understand. If you share minor children with your spouse, you must make decisions on other complex legal matters, such as child support, child custody, and visitation. An experienced divorce lawyer will guide you through this to ensure the outcome is fair and in your best interests.
