Alabama Bankruptcy Court Order Attorneys
Bankruptcy is designed to help people discharge their debts and create a fresh financial start. Once a bankruptcy is over, the debts that have been discharged in that bankruptcy — whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 — are no longer your responsibility to repay. Creditors do not have the right to demand payment from you for debts that were discharged as part of the process. If a creditor ignores that and continues to pursue the debt, it is a violation of bankruptcy laws.
It is important, however, to ensure that you do not leave off any debts in bankruptcy and that you disclose everything that needs to be repaid. Debts that are not included in the filing may still contact you without penalty and can come back to haunt you after the bankruptcy process is over. At Gina H. McDonald & Associates, we can help you ensure that complete information is included in your bankruptcy filing.
Birmingham Discharge Violation Lawyers
When a bankruptcy is finished, and a debt has been properly discharged, it is rare that a demand for payment will be paid from a creditor. Most creditors know to play by the rules, or they will suffer the financial consequences. When it does happen, however, it is important that your attorney understands how to properly handle your case and represent you in court. We will help you pursue any damages that you may be owed as a result of the bankruptcy discharge violation.
It is essential that you have experienced legal representation to help you take advantage of your rights under the law. Even if we didn't handle your bankruptcy case, we can still handle any discharge violation correctly and thoroughly.
