If this is the case a lawsuit is then filed and the case goes before the court and will ultimately be determined by a jury. The fee associated with cases that reach litigation is higher due to the complexity of legal services. In the state of Florida, the appropriate attorney fee in this instance is 40% of the recovery. It may vary case by case so be sure to contact your personal injury attorney today and ask them for more information!

Joint Filing | Bankruptcy Chapter 7

CHAPTER-13, CHAPTER-1, BANKRUPTCT-ATTORNEY, BANKRUPTCY-CODE, FILLING-FOR-BANKRUPTCY, BLICK-LAW-FIRM,1If you are a married couple and considering filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy there questions that may arise such as: determining whether to file jointly or individually. This determination is very critical to the outcome of your filing and you should address this with a Bankruptcy attorney before proceeding.

In some cases, one spouse may have the majority of debts or all debts and deem it necessary to file a bankruptcy separate from the other spouse. However, in cases where both spouses are facing financial hardship in meeting the payments on their debt it may be advantageous to file Bankruptcy jointly.

Advantages to filing jointly/together include:

  • Filing jointly is more efficient by consolidating the filing, making it is less time consuming
  • Paying only one filing fee instead of paying the same fee twice for separate filings
  • Assistance from the other spouse in gathering all the necessary documentation together, which can be extremely burdensome

Joint filing, however, may have disadvantages as well especially when there is a large disparity in the debts and assets between the spouses. Call your bankruptcy attorney to determine what is most effective and beneficial filing for you and your loved one.

If you do not have an attorney and have concerns about your Bankruptcy or are considering filing Bankruptcy jointly, call  Blick Law Firm today and schedule a free 15-minute consultation with attorney Michael Blickensderfer. Think quick, call Blick!call

3 Signs Of A Successful Short Sale | Real Estate Lawyer

Short Sale SignLooking into short selling your home?!

A short sale is an effective option for homeowners faced with financial hardships. There are options in real estate and it may be in your best interest to seek guidance from a real estate lawyer.

What is a short sale?

A short sell, in real estate, is the process through which a lender of a property allows the property to be sold for an amount less than the total amount that is due on the mortgage loan.

The short sell process can be quite complicated, and trying to go through this process with your loved ones can be daunting for most homeowners. A real estate attorney is encouraged for those who are considering short selling their home. Additionally, approval from a mortgage lender is needed in order to sell the property to a third party, and a real estate law firm is able to negotiate the sale with the mortgage lender on your behalf. Upon the lender’s approval, homeowners have the opportunity to sell their property at a significantly lower price helping those in hardship.

How long does a short sell take?

A short sale is a timely process being lengthy and consuming. It must be carried out properly in and legally to be successful. A real estate lawyer will guide you towards a successful outcome to make sure that the necessary documents are processed correctly; to ensure that the short sale is executed to the benefit of their client.

3 signs of a successful short sale:

1. There was a release of the seller’s mortgage obligation

2. Seller avoided significant credit hit

3.  Buyer is able to purchase a home at a relatively low price

If you are contemplating a short sale, or have legal questions regarding a real estate transaction, call Blick Law Firm today to schedule a consultation with Christian Attorney Michael
