What Our Orlando Bankruptcy And Family Law Attorney Can Do For You?
Attorney Solomita Offers A Wide Variety Of Legal Services To His Clients, With Several Areas Of Particular Focus. These Include:
Bankruptcy Law: Many people have an overall negative view of bankruptcy, as the concept of bankruptcy as a whole is often associated with failure, shame, and even financial ruin.
However, that perception is quite far from the truth. Bankruptcy does not necessarily lead to prolonged financial hardship. Rather, it is a very commonly utilized tool offers people who have found themselves with an unmanageable amount of debt—sometimes through circumstances outside of their control, such as emergency medical costs—a chance at a financial fresh start.
Attorney Solomita can help clients file for many different types of bankruptcy, depending on their economic qualifications and their needs. However, he most commonly helps clients file for one of two types of bankruptcy:
- Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: This is the most common type of bankruptcy, and is generally meant for people who make as much as or below the median income level in Florida. Filing allows you to discharge all of your unsecured debts (i.e., many common types of debt, including credit card debt and medical debt). Discharging a debt means that you will no longer be responsible paying that debt. Filing for Chapter 7 triggers an automatic stay, which stops all collections actions until the case is resolved.
In exchange for discharging all your unsecured debts, Chapter 7 Bankruptcy compels you to liquidate your non-exempt assets in order to pay off your creditors. However, most people who file Chapter 7 and only have assets under a certain value can declare all or nearly all of their assets exempt from being liquidated.
- Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: Chapter 13 is normally used by people who have a steady source of income, but simply need some time to catch up with their debt. Filers sign a repayment plan to pay off their debt over several years. Any income not spent on reasonable necessities goes toward the plan. It is designed to help filers reorganize their finances so that they can keep high-value or high-equity assets that are not exempt from liquidation, such as homes over a certain value. Filing for Chapter 11 also triggers an automatic stay, which continues so long as the filer keeps current with their payment plan.
Family Law: Family law involves cases are often sensitive and both emotionally and logistically complex. Attorney Solomita understands this, and endeavors to provide his clients with empathetic, understanding, and clear-eyed legal guidance on family law matters.
Though Attorney Solomita offers a wide range of family law service, he primarily practices in two specific areas of family law:
- Uncontested Divorce: This type of divorce is meant for divorcing couples who have already come to an agreement about all of the terms of their divorce. This includes the division of marital property and alimony (or spousal support), if applicable. If the divorcing couple has children, pursuing uncontested divorce means that they have already worked out all child custody and child support matters, and have worked out a co-parenting plan.In many ways, uncontested divorces are “best case scenario” divorces. They are usually much faster, cheaper, and less emotionally stressful than traditional divorce. However, there are still numerous requirements and procedures required for uncontested divorce, which an experienced attorney can help facilitate.
- Adoption Of Adults And Minors: Attorney Solomita also helps families grow by guiding them through the legal process of adoption. He works on both traditional childhood adoptions, and later-in-life familial or individual adoption of adults. Attorney Solomita knows that are many, many ways to make a family. He makes it a priority to facilitate the legal elements of the adoption process to make it as easy and stress-free for all parties involved as possible. Adoption is a joyous event, and you should be free to enjoy it rather than having to worry about the nitty-gritty legal details. Let Attorney Solomita handle that for you.
Will Bankruptcy Affect Your Child Support Payments?
There is no doubt that bankruptcy can help you get a handle on your financial situation and discharge certain debts. Given that child support is considered a nondischargeable debt, bankruptcy can do nothing to end this obligation. Regardless of if you’ve put an end to other debts, child support will continue to accumulate if you fail to make payments. This can result in wage garnishments, suspension of some of your rights, and interest charges – which can often only be avoided by working with a child support attorney.
Fortunately, bankruptcy does put you in a position where you will be able to contribute your financial resources toward child support without other debt collectors breathing down your neck. By having a bankruptcy lawyer guide you through this process, you can be sure your financial situation will be in the best position to put child support payments first.
