Debt can quickly take over your life if you spend much of your time dodging calls from angry creditors or worry about losing your home or car. Fortunately, no matter how grave your circumstances may seem, relief is available. Filing for bankruptcy can give you the tools you need to temporarily stop collection actions and get a clean slate. If you have very little disposable income each month, you likely qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which allows you to quickly wipe out debt after liquidating non-exempt property (though you can exempt and keep many of your most essential assets). Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a better choice if you have a consistent income, as this process allows you to restructure your debt and commit to a repayment plan. Both options permit filers to eliminate unsecured debt, including medical debt and credit card debt. We can determine your eligibility, advise whether bankruptcy makes sense for your situation, and advocate for you throughout each stage of the filing process.
Are you about to go through a divorce or are locked in a seemingly irreconcilable custody dispute? We recognize how contentious these conflicts can be and are ready to provide the representation you need to pursue what is best for your family.

Your comfort is important to us, which is why we work to resolve these matters as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible – all without ever sacrificing the strength of our advocacy or the quality of our services. To avoid an unnecessary (and costly) court battle, we may recommend considering alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, including collaborative law, mediation, and arbitration. No matter the forum, we will be there to fight for your family.

How do You Apply For Asylum?You must submit an I-589 form to apply for asylum. If you are in removal proceedings, meaning that you have a hearing with an Immigration Judge scheduled, your asylum application must be submitted to the Immigration Court. If you are not in removal proceedings the application must be submitted to USCIS. In most cases, an asylum application must be filed within one year of your date of entry to the United States. A successful application must show the applicant fears persecution in their home country due to their race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. Asylum cases tend to be very complex and require extensive evidence. It is recommended to contact an attorney before filing an application due to how complicated these cases are.
How Much Does a Green Card Cost?The total cost of a green card application will vary depending on the specifics of the case. An attorney can give you a more exact estimate of what your case will entail.
