Assessing Your Post-Divorce Circumstances

[ad_1] After your divorce is finalized, you have the opportunity to look ahead, and while there is a great opportunity ahead to focus on the future, the nitty gritty of the present forces you to take a step back and assess the damage caused by the end of your marriage.

Why I will be Rude to You After You File Chapter 13

[ad_1] I like my clients. I find bankruptcy work rewarding because I can offer positive change to the lives of honest, hardworking people who have an immediate financial problem.

Why does this disconnect exist? Why would you want to hire a lawyer who will be demanding and abrupt? The answer is simple – if you want your Chapter 13 to work, you and I have a lot...

3 Ways To Connect With Your Kids After Your Divorce

[ad_1] The most heartbreaking aspect of divorce for many fathers is the way in which the process destabilizes the relationship they have with their kids. Far too often, gender stereotypes within the family court system result in fathers getting the short end of the stick in child custody decisions. Even if a dad manages to gain a 50-50 split, that still is much less parenting time than he enjoyed while married. With many fathers sidelined to a sort of secondary parent role, the relationship they have with their child starts to suffer. This is even worse if the mother attempts to turn...

Why does the IRS file liens? And what you can do about one.

[ad_1] The obvious reason the IRS files a lien is because someone owes it money.  If you have a lien filed against your property the IRS is attempting to collect a debt.

For a greater understanding, first let’s briefly examine what is a lien.  A lien creates a right to keep possession of property belonging to another person until a debt owed by that person is paid.  Most liens do...
