State vs. Federal Law in Federal Bankruptcy Cases

State vs. Federal Law in Federal Bankruptcy Cases
Since the United States was founded there has been a fascinating relationship between state and federal laws. With the attempt to limit federal overreach, each state was allowed to keep certain functions of their own operation. The core idea behind this was to prevent the notion of “big government.” What has happened in recent years is that there have been several new legal concepts that have had trouble successfully adapting to this model of state vs. federal model. A classic example of a body of law that greatly differs between state and federal is Bankruptcy Law.   A Basic Understanding of Bankruptcy Law For individuals, there are two routes to pursue when they are filing for Bankruptcy.

Essential Hints on When to File Bankruptcy
Any person would not want to file bankruptcy. As we see on television and social networking sites, to file bankruptcy is to lose everything. In its terms, bankruptcy simply pertains to a system of federal laws permitting businesses and individuals to get relief from debts in order for them to restart their financial state. This law was constituted in order for an individual to forge a new future without pressure from creditors who collect pre-existing debts.

Deciding Whether To Fight Foreclosure or Let Your Home

If you want to save your home, the most viable option is typically going to involve filing for protection in bankruptcy under Ch. 13. This leaves you an option to keep the house out of foreclosure, or remove it out of foreclosure because you have a repayment plan in the bankruptcy to catch up payments. Alternatively, other options involve homeowners who prefer to let their mortgage go because they do not feel the desire to keep a home that has a mortgage putting it underwater financially. If your house has a mortgage balance putting it underwater, our team will still help you keep the home if that is your choice. Often, keeping a home that is underwater still makes financial sense due to the opportunity cost with respect to rent. For example, if your mortgage costs $900/month and a Ch. 13 bankruptcy would put you into a repayment plan that has...

Dallas Bankruptcy Lawyer

They have often struggled, scrimped, and limped by trying to make things work financially until they finally throw in the towel. Our Dallas bankruptcy lawyer Richard Weaver understands how families can be terribly affected by medical problems. With medical problems rated as the number one reason to file bankruptcy, it is common for the bills themselves to rack up. Additionally, there is the impact on the earning capacity.

Having your wages garnished is one of the most upsetting things that can happen to a person. Wages are garnished after a creditor gets a judgment against you that you don't pay and then goes back to the court to get the order of garnishment. When this goes into effect, money goes right from your paycheck to the creditor without ever getting to you. If this happens and you need it to stop, you need to understand the rules for wage garnishment under chapter 7 bankruptcy. Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and Wage Garnishment In the cases of most types of wages garnishment, with a few possible limited exceptions for non-dischargeable debts like past due child support, bankruptcy under Chapter 7 of the United States code should put a permanent stop to your wage garnishment.
