At Paris Law, our goal is to provide you with affordable representation to help you choose the legal solutions that fit your individualized needs. Bankruptcy is not the best option for everyone and you can use our free consultation to determine if it is right for you. If it is determined that bankruptcy is an option, we will work diligently to help you understand and proceed through the process. If bankruptcy is not an option, we can assist in negotiating with creditors or defending against civil lawsuits. Our attorneys and staff have years of experience representing clients in Chapter 7 and 13 proceedings. Our representation includes, but is not limited to:
- A free initial consultation.
- Preparation of your bankruptcy petition and plan (if applicable)
- Representation at any court/trustee hearings/meetings
- Representation in bankruptcy related motions or negotiations
- Representation in bankruptcy adversary proceedings*
- Filing any necessary objections or responses*
- Any other bankruptcy matters*
Our fees are reasonable and in accord with standards in the greater Cleveland area. We will work with you to custom tailor our fees with your specific circumstances and needs.
Bankruptcy Chapter 7
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a complete liquidation. This bankruptcy provides for all general unsecured debts to be discharged (with some exceptions). If you qualify for Chapter 7 relief, you can often keep your real estate and personal property. There may be some property that is not protected and some debts that will not be discharged. Our attorneys will make sure you understand all consequences of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy before filing on your behalf.
Bankruptcy Chapter 13
There may be circumstances where you cannot file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. When a Chapter 7 is not the right option for you, a Chapter 13 reorganization can be the better option. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is similar to a repayment plan. Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to repay some or all of your creditors based upon your income and property. A bankruptcy repayment plan generally lasts for up to five (5) years. Upon completion of your plan, you can obtain a discharge of any remaining balances owed pre-bankruptcy.
We are a Debt Relief Agency. We help people file for Bankruptcy Relief.
