Tampa Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys
Tampa Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
The Tampa bankruptcy attorneys at All Family Law Group are experienced in consumer bankruptcy, Chapter 7. We care about our clients and empathize with them on their financial circumstances which leads to them seeking assistance. We understand that financial devastation is something that can happen to anyone, at any time, if the circumstances of their life or the economy changes. We want to help make it as easy as possible to go through the bankruptcy process. Providing all of the needed documents is necessary to a bankruptcy case being confirmed. At the initial consultation, we will get an idea of your circumstances and what the best option for you will be. We will advise you and explain why the timing of a bankruptcy is very important and how it can mean the difference between filing for a Chapter 7 or having to file a Chapter 13. If it turns out you can only file for Chapter 13, we can refer you to another bankruptcy attorney as we are currently not practicing in Chapter 13 Bankruptcies. In the consultation, we will give you an overview of all of your options and answer any questions you may have. The goal of our attorneys and legal staff is to provide you with the best representation possible and we are always working toward that goal.
Call 813-672-1900 or e-mail the Tampa bankruptcy attorneys at the law office of All Family Law Group for an initial consultation at no charge to discuss your options.

Helping Clients Find Effective 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 and it can stop foreclosure, 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 bankruptcy legal services, including preventing foreclosure through a Chapter 7 by discharging other debt. 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.
