Understanding Alabama Bankruptcy Laws

When deciding whether to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy or a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, oftentimes, the controlling question is whether you will be forced to surrender your real or personal property.

In 2015, the governor of Alabama signed into law multiple modifications to state exemption statutes. These changes to the law help alleviate some of the financial burdens placed on the residents of Alabama, especially for lower-income debtors. These and other exemptions exist under both federal and state laws, which are designed to protect a debtor’s property and livelihood.

You shouldn’t go through this complicated process on your own. We will help you understand your options regarding asset protection, dischargeable debt and other important aspects of your situation.

Even if you are already in bankruptcy, the law changes. Sometimes it is beneficial to dismiss your current case and start over. As the law regarding the treatment of VA Disability recently changed, this is especially true of veterans receiving disability.Under prior administrations, it was virtually impossible to discharge student loans. Under the current administration, a streamlined approach has been developed to review student loans in bankruptcy. This process could result in a total or partial discharge of your student loans.
