Pursue a Brighter Future with Laura Eckstein Law
Bankruptcy is a word with a lot of negative connotations. Chances are, you never thought you'd find yourself in this situation and now you're not sure how you will ever get out of it. Fortunately, bankruptcy is an extremely useful lifeline and can help you vastly improve your future.
Our firm views bankruptcy as the chance for a new beginning. We can walk you through what to expect and provide you with well-informed guidance on how to move forward from your present circumstances into a more financially secure future.
Two of the most common types of bankruptcy you can file for include:
Chapter 7 bankruptcy: By filing chapter 7 bankruptcy, you essentially ask the court to discharge your debts in exchange for property. Certain properties can be sold in order to distribute the money to the creditors.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy: By filing a chapter 13 bankruptcy case, you show the court how you plan to pay off your debts over a span of three to five years.
Initially, bankruptcy might seem like your last option and one which you are reluctant to pursue. However, bankruptcy can help you get your bills and your life under control.
Filing for bankruptcy will often stop the following as well:
Some income taxes
Phone call harassment
Collection agency abuse
Driver's license suspensions
Look at bankruptcy as a break from some of these overwhelming debts and aspects of your financial situation so that you have a chance to make some progress in the right direction. It's important to work through your options with an experienced bankruptcy attorney in Union County. We can explain the benefits and disadvantages of some of the options you might be looking at and help you make a plan to improve your current situation.
WILLS & TRUSTS
Serving Clients across Oregon, Arizona, and Utah for 19+ Years.
When you are ready to establish a plan for what happens to your estate after your death, it's crucial that you consult with a skilled wills and trusts attorney in Union County to achieve your goals. An estate plan is a valuable tool to ensure your wishes are carried out you want them to be. In addition, an estate plan is a valuable and stress-minimizing asset for your family members and loved ones. The most fundamental part of crafting an effective estate plan is getting to know everything we can about your assets, your needs, and your wishes. We take the time to truly understand your case so that we can perfectly meet your needs.
We can walk you through the following options:
Wills: Wills specify what property will be distributed following your death, and to whom it will be given. Wills can also name a guardian for your minor children.
Trusts: Trusts can help avoid the probate process after your death. There are several different types of trusts which you can control during your lifetime.
Powers of attorney: Setting up a power of attorney essentially allows a trusted individual to make a decision on your behalf.
Advance healthcare directives: If you are ever incapacitated and unable to make a decision, an advanced healthcare directive gives a trusted individual the legal ability to make medical decisions for you.
There is a certain peace of mind that can only be obtained through knowing that your future and the future of your loved ones are planned out and taken care of. Our firm can provide you with details about these options and help you decide what is the best course of action for you and your loved ones. We work with you to evaluate your assets and craft a will or trust that is tailor-made to your needs and wishes. Our firm can provide you with the information you need to make sound decisions about the future.
