Review This Lawyer
Reviewed by R. S. December 1, 2019
Filing bankruptcy is an anxious situation made less stressful with a good attorney.
There's a lot of confusing paperwork in bankruptcy but Michael made the process easy and less frightening. He took the time to answer all my questions, meeting with me when I needed help and giving me good advice and guidance every step of the way. When I had to go to court, he stood next to me and spoke for me, which meant a lot as I'd never been to court before. Bankruptcy is a distressing situation but having someone in my corner who was nonjudgmental, gave good advice and helped me through the process took the sting out of a legal necessity.

Legal Answers
67 Questions Answered
Q. Can I get lawyer support per hour without a large down payment in Brower Florida?
A: Good morning. You may find an attorney out there can may be able to assist you, but we do not take on issue piece meal like that. We would need to be retained for the case.
Q. Can husband get equity gained during marriage on a home purchased prior to marriage ?
A: Yes, you husband could have a marital interest in a home purchased prior to the marriage. How much depends on whether marital funds were used to make the mortgage payments, whether there were any improvements made on the home during the marriage which caused appreciation, and whether the value of the home has increased during the marriage. You should contact an attorney to discuss the options.
Q. Hi, I had an attorney for my divorce for over a year so we've made quite a bit of progress. Here's where we are:
A: First you must make sure that at least one of you have plead for partition which is what allows the court to sell the home at auction if you and your husband cannot agree on what to do with the home. Second, you need to have the home appraised by a reputable appraiser that has experience testifying in court as the judge will need testimony from this sort of expert to determine the value of the home. Third, once you have all of the above completed, and you have all the evidence you need to prove your case on all the issues that have not been agreed on, you will need to file a notice for trial to advise the court that you are ready for trial. Make sure to review the judges policies and procedures as every judge and county is different.
