Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&A

I am a native of Ozark, Missouri, where I grew up and have been practicing law since 2001, and as a sole proprietor since 2005. I strive to treat others as I would wish to be treated when seeking out a professional to assist me with life-changing decisions. I will personally advise you, meet with you at every appointment, and work your case up myself from beginning to end, with no paralegals or legal secretaries involved. I am able to devote to my clients and their cases the kind of personal attention that only a small-town, sole practitioner is able to provide.

Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered

Q. At what point would it be "too late" for a person to file for bankruptcy?
A: There is no such thing as "too late" under the bankruptcy code. Sometimes you will hear people use this terminology after a home has been foreclosed on or a vehicle repossessed because, at that point, it is too late for the bankruptcy stay to stop the secured creditor from taking the property. If this example covers your particular situation, then you have your answer. Otherwise there is no way to answer your question without more specific details.
Q. My name is on a joint title for a car my father owns and possess. What will happen when I file chapter 7.
A: The vehicle will be an asset of your bankruptcy estate that you must list and then apply to your interest any available exemptions that you may have. Whether or not the trustee pursues liquidation of the vehicle will depend upon the amount of nonexempt equity.
Q. I received my dismissal letter for my Ch. 13 in June. I'm selling my house but the title co says termination in court
A: If a dismissal order has been entered, then you would normally be free to sell your property. The title company may simply want to wait until the bankruptcy case is officially closed. If you were represented by an attorney in your bankruptcy, then you should contact that person to make sure there are no unresolved issues delaying the closing out of your case.
Q. I am currently going through a debt management program, am I still able to declare bankruptcy
A: Participation in a debt management program is never a bar, in and of itself, to seeking debt relief in bankruptcy. Whether or not the attorney fees may be paid in installments depends upon the policies of the individual attorney that you hire to represent you. I personally offer payment plans, but cannot speak for any other attorney.
