Benefits of Hiring a Bankruptcy Attorney | Lawyer
If you are feeling overwhelmed by your financial situation, then you may want to consider filing for a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Filing for bankruptcy can provide you with the relief and time that you need to get back on your feet and to begin feeling at ease in life once again. A Dallas, TX bankruptcy attorney can help you begin the process of gathering paperwork, scheduling necessary meetings with creditors and filing the appropriate documents with the court for your bankruptcy case.
Debtors find that they often feel a sense of calm after filing for bankruptcy. Under a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, debtors are no longer required to repay a majority of their debts. In addition, one can still enjoy ownership of certain forms of property. Texas law offers more exemptions for debtors in comparison with most other states. Filing for bankruptcy in Texas can be a very smart option for people who are financially strapped for cash and unable to meet their monthly obligations. In the beginning stages of a bankruptcy filing, a bankruptcy attorney will help you figure out which types of property are included in the bankruptcy estate. The bankruptcy estate is the total sum of assets that will be used to repay creditors. A trustee is in charge of distributing the assets contained in the bankruptcy estate. The trustee is a neutral, third-party in your case.
Texas offers several classes of exemptions that debtors can benefit from in their bankruptcy case. As the leading Dallas bankruptcy service provider we will be able to analyze your property holdings and figure out which assets fall under the classes of exemptions in Texas. A single person is able to keep certain property that has a value of up to $30,000. A family is able to keep property that has a value of up to $60,000. Certain tools and equipment that are used in one's profession may be totally exempt from a bankruptcy filing. Any equipment that is used for farming purposes is exempt from a bankruptcy estate.
Other notable exemptions include a motor vehicle for each member of the family, a limited number of farm animals and wages for personal services. Clothing is also totally exempt in the state of Texas. These exemptions are liberal in comparison with other states that require only a certain percentage of the value of one's wardrobe, professional equipment and motor vehicle to be exempt from the bankruptcy estate.
