Helping Clients Find Effective Tampa Debt Relief with Bankruptcy Protection & Foreclosure Defense
We are Tampa bankruptcy attorneys practicing in the Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division. This includes the counties of Hillsborough, Pinellas, Manatee, Sarasota, Hardee, Hernando, Polk and Pasco. Our practice includes attorney representation of consumer and business bankruptcy in Chapter 7 bankruptcy, as well as foreclosure defense through Chapter 13 bankruptcy, as debt and foreclosure issues often arise in divorce and family law situations. As property is divided in divorce, and one household is divided into two, divorce sometimes has the unexpected consequence of creating serious financial issues leading to bankruptcy and/or foreclosure. We provide experienced Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy legal services, as well as Foreclosure Defense. Even if you are not going through a divorce, if your debt is unmanageable or you are threatened by home foreclosure, contact our firm for an initial, no-charge discussion of your case.
You can find debt relief through bankruptcy. Furthermore, bankruptcy has an added benefit of no tax consequences on your discharged debt. Going through a debt consolidation or payment program will often result in tax consequences if the amount you owe is reduced. The IRS considers this to be income, and the amount of the reduction will be added to your gross taxable income.
We will review your particular situation to determine if bankruptcy is best for you or if now is the best time to go through bankruptcy. We can help you plan so that it may be possible for you to go through Chapter 7 in the future when you do not qualify for it now. Or if you qualify for a chapter 7 and if you are in arrears on your real property and want to retain it, then you can do a chapter 7 and then a chapter 13 where you will pay the arrears over either a three year or five year period. This is known as a Chapter 20 bankruptcy.
Our Tampa bankruptcy attorneys will help you with your bankruptcy case even if you are not close to our office. This can be accomplished entirely online via the internet, mail and telephone. All bankruptcy clients, regardless of their location within the Middle District of Florida’s Tampa Division, will have to attend one Meeting of Creditors in downtown Tampa across from the Federal Courthouse. The Meeting of Creditors is held approximately 35 days from the date of filing your petition.
