Ypsilanti Bankruptcy and Family Law Lawyer
When experiencing difficult financial times, most people simply want to know what they can do to stop the creditor calls, stop garnishments, get out from under debt and move forward with their lives.
At the Ypsilanti law office of Gregory L. Dodd, Attorney at Law, we give people access to the resources and education not only to find financial relief, but to protect their financial futures moving forward.
Experienced at handling divorce and bankruptcy, we often handle both these matters for the same client.
Efficient and Cost-Effective Legal Solutions
"How much is all this going to cost?" Every case is different, but a large portion of our bankruptcy filings cost the client $500.00 in total attorney fees. Credit report included. The truth is, if you choose to work with our law firm, you stand to save yourself a significant amount of time, money and a great deal of stress that often accompanies any legal proceeding.
Here are the three main things we need to start, which usually get us about 80% done:
- Completed 16-page information sheets;
- Pay stubs for 6 months;
- $100.00 of the attorney fee for credit report and means testing
What sets us apart from other bankruptcy firms is our years of experience, local knowledge and personalized services. By promoting all three in our dealing with each and every client, we can work through proceedings quickly, keep costs to a minimum and offer solutions that keep you out of debt once your matter is resolved.
Although bankruptcy never feels like a good situation, most clients we see end up better off by having evened the scales with their creditors and giving themselves a "fresh start financially".
Putting Our Clients on an Even Footing with Bankruptcy Protection
There are countless myths concerning bankruptcy and its effects on your credit and finances. One of our primary objectives at the law office of Gregory L. Dodd is to give you the facts and clear up any misconceptions. For example, many people assume that their credit will be ruined by filing for bankruptcy. However, filing for bankruptcy can actually improve your credit by discharging your debt and wiping the slate clean. Particularly if you have judgments against you, filing bankruptcy may be preferable to not filing bankruptcy and leaving those judgments on your credit.
There are numerous other protections bankruptcy can provide. Whether filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, determining how to prepare and protect yourself when filing, or taking steps to end garnishment, we will give you the information, guidance and confidence you need to make meaningful change to your financial situation.
