Unlike other firms, our representation does not terminate upon discharge.  Rather, not only do we want to make sure that your creditors never contact you again, but also that your credit scores start improving. Although a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy may remain on your credit report for 10 years, that does not mean you cannot have excellent credit much sooner.  In fact, you can generally have GREAT CREDIT in 1 to 2 years!

Credit Cards after Bankruptcy

So many people think that after Bankruptcy, their credit is forever ruined and they will never get a credit card again. Nothing could be further form the truth.  In fact, many creditors actively solicit discharged debtors for credit cards again.  For example, each day the Carlsbad office receives numerous letters from Capitol One on recent discharges.  The typical offer states,   “You’re working to get back on track–trying to stay on top of your bills and monitoring your finances.  Apply today to enjoy the advantages of this Capitol One Platinum MasterCard offer: * No Annual Fee * 0% Intro APR

Unclaimed Money?

Did you know that you may have unclaimed money floating out there?  In Bankruptcy, all assets must be disclosed.  But sometimes debtors are unaware that they have certain assets.  This can often come as a pleasant surprise!   The State of California maintains a website for individuals to search for the unclaimed property it has in its possession.  Currently almost 18 million Californians are unaware of the $6.1 Billion the state is presently holding in trust for them.   Simply do a search at this website and fill out the forms to make your claim!  Or, please contact us and

I can recover Garnished Wages and Bank Levies?

Yes you can!  Bankruptcy not only eliminates debt, but can also be a tool to recover previously garnished wages, levied monies from bank accounts, liens, and other involuntary transfers. Under 11 USC 547, property taken within 90 days of filing bankruptcy can be recovered thru the filing of an Adversary Proceeding in the Bankruptcy Court.  Generally, the value taken must be over $600, and the process usually takes about 60 to 90 days. So don’t despair. Even though your money has been taken, we can usually get it back! To learn more about recovering assets siezed by creditors, please contact us.

When Can I File Bankruptcy Again?

There is no limit on the number of bankruptcy cases that one may file. In fact, there is no limit in between time frames to file bankruptcy. Nevertheless, if sufficient time between filings does not take place, you may be not be eligible for discharge. So if a bankruptcy case is filed too soon, even though it will not be dismissed, a discharge may not take place. Why would anyone do this? Well there are several reasons to name a few. If enough time has not taken place, but a debtor wants to eliminate their debt in a subsequent chapter

USE BANKRUPTCY TO REPAIR AND REBUILD YOUR CREDIT! A common myth about filing for Bankruptcy is that it ruins your credit and you can not get credit again or for a very long time. That myth is completely untrue. Generally speaking, people with bad credit actually see their credit scores improve with the filing of a Bankruptcy. This is simply because the credit scoring system heavily relies in a large part on the debt to credit ratio. Since a Bankruptcy eliminates most debts, the debt to credit ratio improves drastically and in many cases becomes perfect. Such an improvement outweighs

High Income and Expensive Real Estate Still Okay for Chapter 7

We often hear the phrases “I make too much money to file bankruptcy,” or “I have too much property to file for bankrutpcy.”  These myths are often untrue.  Recently, the San Diego Bankruptcy Court allowed debtors with income of $14,500 per month and over $8000.00 in housing expenses related to their “McMansion” to receive a chapter 7 discharge. Generally speaking, if you make too much money, you still may be able to qualify for Chapter 7 relief, and almost always can qualify for Chapter 13 relief.  Likewise, if you have a house with $200k in equity, it is still possible

Make Sure Your Attorney Sends the Trustee All Required Documents and You Fully Disclose All Information:

DISCLOSE, DISCLOSE, DISCLOSE. These are probably the most important three words in Bankruptcy. All too often debtors negligently, and sometimes intentionally, fail to disclose all assets and debts. Not only is this a federal crime subject to fine and imprisonment and loss of such assets, but it may also result in the non-issuance or revocation of your discharge. Disclosure also requires complete transparency with your finances. As such, “due diligence” documents are required in the Southern District of California Bankruptcy Courts. Failure to supply all documents will result in your case not being filed, continuances, and/or denial of discharge.
