Choose The Best Plantation Bankruptcy Lawyer

Jose Miceli, Esq. is experienced and proficient in bankruptcy law, student loan litigation, consolidation, and homeowner insurance claims. He is able to provide the highest level of legal representation in this area due to his ten years of experience as a staff attorney representing the Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Trustee in Miami, Florida. In this capacity he conducted thousands of meetings with creditors on matters relating to confirmation and modification of Chapter 13 plans. There are many options for improving your financial situation when you’ve accumulated too much debt, but it’s important to work with a professional that can help you employ all the legal tools at your disposal properly.

Why You Should Choose A Plantation Bankruptcy Lawyer Over A Debt Consolidation Service

Debt relief agencies promise to free you from your financial problems, but their promises are often too good to be true. There are many different types of bankruptcy, each with many rules and procedures that must be adhered to. Small mistakes can lead to delays, penalties and dismissals. Bankruptcy is not right for everybody, and an experienced Plantation bankruptcy attorney will sometimes advise you to choose another strategy instead of filing for bankruptcy. Debt relief services don’t have the education and experience to properly advise people about the impact to their credit score, how much property they can keep, and other legal implications of their bankruptcy filing. This can lead to unexpected results that cause even greater hardships than the original debt problem. Never forget the “no free lunch rule” – If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

The Automatic Stay for Bankruptcy Filing

One of the best features of filing for bankruptcy is the automatic stay. This means that as soon as you file for bankruptcy, all of your creditors are put on notice not to engage in any type of collection activity. These are some of the actions that will be automatically stayed:

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

If you qualify, Chapter 7 Bankruptcy can discharge all of your debts, giving you a fresh start, without the need for a repayment plan. The catch is that you can only qualify if you have below a certain amount of assets and income. To qualify in Florida, you must earn less money than the median income in the state, which was $66,995 in 2018, and have limited assets. There are many exemptions that allow you to keep assets. You may even qualify for a “no asset” bankruptcy, where none of your property is sold by the bankruptcy trustee. These are some of the exemptions available for Florida residents seeking Chapter 7 bankruptcy:

  • Homestead Exemption
  • Personal Property Exemptions (the limit is higher if you’re not seeking a Homestead Exemption)
  • Wages
  • Pension Benefits
  • Insurance Benefits
  • Public Benefits
  • Alimony And Child Support

In addition to the exemptions above, it is also possible to qualify for exceptions that may allow you to keep your home, your vehicle, and other assets. The best way to find out if you’re qualified for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is to consult with an experienced Plantation Bankruptcy Attorney. Call Miceli Law at 866-907-2970 today to make an appointment.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

If you’re making good money, but struggling every month to pay your mortgage, alimony, child support, taxes, or other debts, Chapter 13 may be the right solution for you. It is especially useful if you are in imminent danger of foreclosure, as it can often allow you to keep your home. Chapter 13 helps you to create an affordable three to five year plan to pay back creditors, that will get the debt collectors off your back. Once you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the phone calls from collection agencies, the foreclosure proceedings, and the repossession attempts will stop.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

This is the most popular type of business bankruptcy filing for both large and small businesses. It can usually allow the business to continue to operate and generate income as the business is “reorganized” financially. It can help a business emerge from debt and get a fresh start. The company will be limited in their financial decision making during the process, having to get approval for activities such as:

  • Selling Certain Types of Assets
  • Entering Into or Terminating Leases
  • Stopping or Expanding Business Operations

The Chapter 11 bankruptcy court has broad discretion and any reasonable plan to downsize a business to reduce expenses, renegotiate debts, or liquidate assets will be considered as long as it is fair to the creditors.
