Have you spent tomorrow’s paycheck?

Are you already dividing up how the paycheck you’ll get tomorrow will be spent? Are you trying to figure out how to stretch the money to cover debt payments and then still pay for the food your family needs, the kids’ school supplies, the unexpected car repair?

Is there any money left for other necessities such as utilities and car insurance?

If your paycheck is not enough to pay your bills and meet those basic necessities, then it is time to set up an appointment to consider whether bankruptcy will help you reset your priorities. In bankruptcy we first consider your family’s real needs and then consider debt payments.

Isn’t it time to put your family’s needs first?

The Giles & Lambert Difference:

We got this email Monday from a Chapter 7 client and I wanted to share!

“I wanted to thank your team. I was in court today, arrived early as suggested to get an idea of what was to happen. I observed a few cases before mine and was surprised to see how unprepared some people were and their attorneys. I would like to thank you for your hard work and making sure I was prepared to take care of what I needed to do with confidence, I had a great team working in my interest to a better financial future. Thank you, ”

341 HEARINGS FOR FRIDAY, JAN. 22 POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER FORECAST

Well, the forecast is so bad, the Chapter 7 Trustee has announced all 341 hearings for Friday, January 22, 2016 have been postponed to Monday, February 1, 2016. This is only the 2nd time in 23 years I can recall these hearings being cancelled due to weather!
Your hearing will be at the exact same time, but just on the new date.
Please let us know if you have any questions.

Friday Hearings and the Snow

With a forecast for the region’s first big snow set for this Friday, two common situations occur:

1. My kids (and all those in the Valley) are doing the snow dance non-stop, hoping to get out of school.
2. Clients are calling asking about Court on Friday.

This is the scoop: the 341 Meeting of Creditors (the bankruptcy hearing where you appear before your Trustee) will be held. The government office which is in charge of these hearings has only cancelled them once in 23 years that I can recall.

So, if you can get there safely, do so. If it is not possible, or extremely dangerous based on the road conditions or where you live, let us know. Each client with a hearing on Friday is being emailed my personal contact info. If you cannot make it, call, text or email me so that I know and can make arrangements for a continuance.

Be safe, Be warm. And keep working on being debt free.
