Bankruptcy Lawyer in LAKEWOOD WA

HELPING FAMILIES THROUGHOUT PIERCE COUNTY

Not being able to make payments is a frightening feeling for anyone living in the Puyallup WA, Fife WA, Lakewood WA, Sumner WA and Tacoma WA, areas. Initially, most people try to manage at least partial payments or make an effort to pay creditors on some type of rotational basis.

However, the longer people wait, the more challenging it can be to try to work with creditors. By talking to a bankruptcy lawyer early in the process, there are more options to consider and the possibility of being able to develop a plan that may even prevent the need for bankruptcy.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Attorney

When people have limited income and ability to pay back creditors, a bankruptcy attorney may recommend a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This is sometimes called liquidation bankruptcy, and it is simple, effective, and it can be completed in a very short period of time.

Your Chapter 7 bankruptcy Attorney in Puyallup, Sumner, Lakewood or Tacoma, WA, will ensure you meet the requirement to file this type of bankruptcy. This includes a means test, which is administered by the Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyer to ensure the individuals qualify for this option.

Then, the attorney works with the individual to develop a list, correctly known as a schedule, of all assets and liabilities as well as current income and payments. There may be other documents required based on the specific case and the specific assets and properties owned or leased by the individual.

Additionally, the lawyer completes the documentation for the court as to the creditors and the amounts they are owned. It is important to talk to the attorney and be fully transparent in listing both assets and debts for both yourself and a spouse, even if he or she is not filing for bankruptcy.

Talking to a Chapter 7 bankruptcy attorney as soon as financial obligations cannot be met provides the greatest opportunity to work with the creditors and to explore your options.

Very efficient, patient, and kind. Rita and Kevin made it a smooth painless transition. I was per say a stressed out client that was spinning out of control a bit. Rita always communicated and got me through this situation.

Good guy. Edit to add more detail: When I hired Mr. Byrd I was in the middle of a disastrous situation with my ex, and I wasn't really thinking clearly at the time, so I ended up hiring Mr. Byrd, and then decided to change my legal strategy, which was not a very good idea. But Mr. Byrd was the most honest guy I've ever worked with, and gave me back more money than I deserved. He worked really hard for me, and I should've followed his advice. I regret not sticking with Mr. Byrd for my attorney to help me with my issues with my ex and my son. Thankfully things are ok for me now, but if they ever get bad again, the first person I'm calling is Mr. Byrd. If you have family law issues, Mr. Byrd is the guy you want to call.
