What should I do if I'm stopped for DUI?

Bankruptcy

BANKRUPTCY  MYTHS

Bankruptcy doesn't exist anymore.  NOT TRUE!
 
The laws were changed recently, but Americans have been filing bankruptcy since the Constitution was ratified  in 1789 and more and more Americans today in this economic crisis are filing in order to save their home from foreclosure.


Only deadbeats file for bankruptcy.  NOT TRUE!
 
Most people file for bankruptcy after a life-changing experience, such as a divorce, the loss of a job or a serious illness. They've struggled to pay their bills for months and just keep falling further behind.
The way the credit card companies work, you're not meant to pay them off because every month they are collecting more and more interest and your balance just keeps growing

Bankruptcy ruins your credit.  NOT TRUE!
 
Most people who file for bankruptcy have already damaged their credit.  Most people who file for bankruptcy end up in a Chapter 13 which can actually rebuild your credit based on the repayment plan that you enter into.

I'll lose everything I have.  NOT TRUE!

This is the misconception that keeps people who really should file for bankruptcy from doing it.They think the government will sell everything they have and they'll have to start over in a cardboard box.  California has some of the strongest exemptions that protect certain kinds of assets, such as your house, your car (up to a certain value), money in qualified retirement plans, household goods and clothing.  "For most people, they'll pass through a bankruptcy case and keep everything they have," says John Hargrave, a bankruptcy trustee in New Jersey. If you have a mortgage or a car loan, you can keep those as long as you keep making the payments (like the rest of us). 


 Everyone will know I've filed for bankruptcy.  NOT TRUE!

Unless you're a prominent person or a major corporation and the filing is picked up by the media, the chances are very good that the only people who will know about a filing are your creditors. While it's true that bankruptcy is a public legal proceeding, the number of people filing is so massive that very few publications have the space, the manpower or the inclination to run all of them.

Divorce Child Custody

COMMUNITY PROPERTY

California is a community property state, meaning that any assets acquired during the marriage are considered marital or community property.  This property is subject to division between spouses in the event of a divorce or legal separation.  However, this does not mean that all property will be treated equally or evenly.  The court will look to a number of factors to determine how to distribute marital property between spouses.    If you are interested in learning more about property division and how property is divided in the divorce, please contact us.  We can review the facts of your case and make a determination how we can help you and give you our legal opinion as to who the most likely outcome will be based on our experience.  Property which was obtained prior to the marriage and maintained separate during the marriage may remain separate property after the divorce. 

CHILD VISITATION

How often you see your children and how often your spouse will see the children depends a lot on whether you can work it out on your own or "mediate" the child visitation issue.   Most noncustodial parents end up with every other weekend as ordered by the Court.  You should try to get as much time as you are able to with your child(ren).  That's where having an attorney can make a huge difference.  Contact us for more information.

SPOUSAL SUPPORT

If you have questions about spousal support and whether it will affect your divorce, please contact us.  California law provides for a number of scenarios for work at home mom, particularly if she has put her spouse through school or put off your own education or career.  Spousal support may be based on a number of factors.  Don't give up, or "waive" spousal support without talking to an attorney first.   Contact us for more information.

CHILD SUPPORT

How much child support is paid is also a determinative factor of how often you or your spouse have visitation with your child(ren).   Usually the parent with the least time pays the most according to a preset formula that accounts for income, insurance, and some expenses.  Contact us for specific provisions and amounts based upon you and your spouse's income.  Contact us for more information. 

RESTRAINING ORDERS/DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

If you're suffering from domestic violence, call the police immediately and get help from an attorney. If you've been wrongfully accused of domestic violence and your ex spouse is trying to get a restraining order, contact us immediately.  The CLETS restraining order can affect your job and your future.  Don't let someone manipulate the system.  Don't try to represent yourself.  They won't take you seriously.  Contact our firm and make an appointment immediately.
