Many people still view filing for bankruptcy as a bad thing, embarrassing, taboo, and something that society frowns upon. However, bankruptcy is a powerful legal tool that helps many individuals, families, and businesses get a clean, fresh financial start. Our clients have been able to erase a tremendous amount of debt, get a new start, and achieve peace of mind. These are a few stories that show how filing for bankruptcy can help you in many ways. Atlantis Law Firm is here to help you and your family.
The Solution: Robert and Maria came to Atlantis Law Firm because they did not know what to do about the lawsuit. We filed an emergency bankruptcy case for them, which immediately stopped the lawsuit. We walked them through the process, prepared their case, filed it, and in 3 short months, their bankruptcy case was discharged. Robert and Maria had over $55,000 in debts wiped out. They have a new start and are working on re-building their credit, debt-free.
The Solution: Atlantis Law Firm filed a chapter 7 bankruptcy for Emily. This immediately stopped the wage garnishments. We took care of notifying the IRS immediately, and the very next paycheck, the garnishments stopped. Additionally, since her tax deficiencies were old enough, they were also discharged in the bankruptcy. Emily also had over $20,000 in credit card debts wiped away. Additionally, we negotiated with the company financing her car and were able to lower her interest rate by over half. Now, her monthly car payments are lower and more affordable.
The Solution: Michael had previously visited other bankruptcy attorneys who told him he did not qualify for a chapter 7 bankruptcy. However, with Atlantis Law Firm’s expertise, we were able get Michael to qualify for a chapter 7 by using deductions and more living expenses. We were also able to protect all of his assets- none were taken from him during his case. Three and a half months after filing, Michael received his discharge, and his debts were gone.
The Solution: Atlantis Law filed a chapter 13 bankruptcy case for John and Patricia. The filing stopped the upcoming trustee’s sale of their home and put it on hold for the duration of their case. We prepared a feasible chapter 13 Plan for John and Patricia, a monthly payment they could afford. Their house arrears were put into the plan to be paid off so they could keep their home. We filed a Lien Avoidance Motion for them and successfully got it granted. This meant that their second mortgage would be completely stripped and they would not have to pay on it anymore. Additionally, the back taxes they owed were also put into the plan. After 5 years, John and Patricia will have completed a chapter 13 case, received a discharge, kept their home, and come out debt free.
