BANKRUPTCY CHAPTER 7

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the fastest and most common form of consumer bankruptcy. It’s a tool to resolve overwhelming debt under the protection of a federal court. You may have to give up some assets, like an expensive car or jewelry, but the vast majority of filers do not.

This type of bankruptcy forgives most unsecured debts, that is, debts without collateral, like medical bills, credit card debt and personal loans. However, some forms of debt, such as back taxes, court judgments, alimony and child support, and student loans generally aren’t eligible.

To qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you:

  • Must pass the means test, which looks at your income, assets and expenses.
  • Cannot have completed a Chapter 7 in the past eight years or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy within the past six years.
  • Cannot have filed a bankruptcy petition (Chapter 7 or 13) in the previous 180 days that was dismissed because you failed to appear in court or comply with court orders, or you voluntarily dismissed your own filing because creditors sought court relief to recover property they had a lien on.

Access Legal Care is a debt relief agency. Our team of bankruptcy petition preparers will prepare and file your Bankruptcy Chapter 7 petition and schedules in all 50 states for individuals or couples, with limited assets. We do not do Chapter 13 Bankruptcies. If you are experiencing a financial hardship and you are unable to pay your debts, we can help provide a solution to your problem, giving you the option to say goodbye to the harassing collection calls and obtain a fresh start.

Our bankruptcy petition preparers will, at an affordable rate:

  • work with you to gather all documents and information necessary to prepare your petition and schedules;
  • provide you a list of debtor financial courses you can take online or by phone; 
  • prepare, properly format the petition, all schedules, and other files;
  • properly file your chapter 7 bankruptcy petition;
  • upload all documents to your trustee and answer Trustee questions on your behalf, as your power of attorney
  • provide you a document that helps you prepare for your attendance at your Creditor’s Meeting with the Trustee (we do not attend your Creditor’s Meeting)

Although we are a law firm, not all of our bankruptcy petition preparers are attorneys, because we help clients in all 50 states, even where we are not licensed. Therefore, in those states where we are not licensed, our bankruptcy petition preparers cannot give you legal advice. We also do not represent clients in litigation, which is usually not necessary for any Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. However, all of our petition preparers can help you with the services listed above.

IRS TAX NEGOTIATION

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) can be scary without owing them money. If you owe a large tax balance to the IRS, it can be terrifying. The IRS can hold onto your property, garnish your wages, freeze access to your financial balances, and put liens on or seize your property. If your money-related challenges have gotten you into difficulty with the IRS, you have to act quickly to avoid a terrible outcome. 

In the event that you don't have the cash to take care of your obligation to the IRS, you need not fear. There are alternatives accessible to you, and an accomplished lawyer can assist you with negotiating an agreement with the IRS and help you get your life back on track.  

You have the legitimate option to speak to the IRS yourself; however, most citizens have discovered that expert assistance, for example, specific lawyers, bookkeepers, or specialists who are knowledgeable about helping citizens settle unpaid assessment obligations, can improve your chances of arriving at an adequate settlement with the IRS.

Typically, the IRS will work with the individuals who owe cash, and you have a few unique alternatives available to help settle your obligation with them. For example, some of those options are installment agreements, an installment agreement with partial payments, an offer in compromise, not currently collective programs, bankruptcy, release of wage garnishments, stopping the IRS from levying any bank accounts, and releasing you from any IRS obligations which are past the statute of limitations. Permitting an accomplished IRS-negotiation lawyer to deal with your IRS correspondences and communications is smart choice. Using an experienced lawyer to communicate and negotiate with the IRS can save you significant money, lower your stress, and give you peace of mind.

Access Legal Care lawyers assist people throughout the U.S.A. with negotiating with the IRS to resolve their tax debts. Our fees depend on how much you owe, and we can work out low initial and monthly payment plan options.

LAWSUITS FOR CRIME VICTIMS

Regardless of the outcome of the criminal prosecution, or even if there was no prosecution, crime victims can file civil lawsuits against offenders and other responsible parties. Unlike the criminal justice system, civil courts determine whether an offender or a third party is liable for the injuries sustained as a result of the crime. If so, courts may order them to pay monetary damages to the victims. While money can never fully compensate a victim for the trauma from crime or the loss of a loved one, it can be a valuable resource to help crime survivors rebuild their lives. Also, the exposure to civil liability is a powerful incentive for landlords, businessmen, and other proprietors to enact the security measures necessary to prevent future victimizations.

Potential defendants who can be liable to crime victims include:  

  • Landlords, colleges, and shopping malls that do not provide adequate security or prevent foreseeable injuries;  
  • People who allow children access to firearms;  
  • Childcare centers, schools, and churches that do not properly check the backgrounds of their employees;
  • Tavern owners or social hosts who continue to serve alcohol to inebriated persons;
  • Hotel chains who financially benefit from sexual and/or human trafficking victims by their patrons and know or should know that criminal behavior is occurring;
  • Pharmaceutical Companies who produce or supply addictive opioids with inadequate warnings or illegal marketing strategies, or doctors who wrongfully prescribe opioids that lead to serious harm. 

Access Legal Care lawyers assist people throughout the U.S.A. with their lawsuits for crime-victim claims. Our fees are always contingency fees, meaning you pay nothing unless we win money for you, and then our fee is taken out of the money that we get for you. It is a win-win situation.

PERSONAL INJURY

Personal injury law is a system designed to compensate accident victims for injury, physical or psychological, as a result of the negligence or intentional conduct of another person, company, or government entity.   Examples of common personal injury claims include injuries from auto accidents, slip and falls, defective products, workplace injuries and medical malpractice.  

The “Auto Accidents” category of the law includes accidents that take place with cars, motorcycles, buses, trucks, trains, ATMs and pedestrians. Causes of injury might include faulty airbags, defective brakes, defective seat belts, a confusing or poorly marked construction zone, broken traffic signals.

Access Legal Care lawyers assist people throughout the U.S.A. with their personal injury claims. Our fees are always contingency fees, meaning you pay nothing unless we win money for you, and then our fee is taken out of the money that we get for you. It is a win-win situation.

QDROs and EDROs

A “Qualified Domestic Relations Order” (also known as QDRO), and an Eligible Domestic Relations Order” (also known as an EDRO) is a court order used to divide specific types of retirement plans, including qualified and 403(b) plans. According to the Internal Revenue Service, a QDRO is “a judgment, decree or order for a retirement plan to pay child support, alimony or marital property rights to a spouse, former spouse, child or other dependents of a [retirement plan] participant.”

A QDRO grants a person known as the “alternate payee” the right to part of the retirement benefits a former spouse (the “participant”) earned through an employer-sponsored retirement plan. While a QDRO provides benefits to an alternate payee when the participant is alive, it can also award survivor benefits if the participant dies.

Access Legal Care prepares QDROs and EDROs for divorcing or divorced couples in all 50 states of the 

U.S. Our services include: Preparing the QDRO/EDRO to comply with U.S. Laws, Plan Administrator guidelines, and the divorce judgment itself; send to Plan Administrator for pre-approval; make changes after pre-approval and then work with couples to get signatures; send to the Court to get Judge’s signature; send judge-signed Order to the Plan Administrator for processing; and all legal advice to client throughout the process.

SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY (SSDI)

Social Security Disability (SSD) is a part of the Federal Social Security Act. It includes several programs that provide disability payments and other benefits to disabled workers and their families. Benefits are often referred to as Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits.

SSD benefits may consist of cash payments and medical coverage. Benefits depend on your financial situation and whether you qualify under the appropriate Social Security Administration regulations.

Access Legal Care lawyers assist people throughout the U.S.A. with their social security claims. Our fees are always contingency fees, meaning you pay nothing unless we win money for you, and then our fee is taken out of the money that we get for you. It is a win-win situation.

TRADEMARKS AND COPYRIGHTS

A trademark is a brand name. A trademark or service mark includes any word, name, symbol, device, or any combination, used or intended to be used to identify and distinguish the goods/services of one seller or provider from those of others, and to indicate the source of the goods/services.

It is vitally important that you select or create a trademark that is both federally registrable and legally protectable.

Although federal registration of a mark is not mandatory, it has several advantages, including notice to the public of the registrant's claim of ownership of the mark, legal presumption of ownership nationwide, and exclusive right to use the mark on or in connection with the goods/services listed in the registration.

If you are a foreign-domiciled applicant, you must have a U.S.-licensed attorney represent you at the USPTO. Non-U.S.-licensed attorneys and non-attorneys may give you inaccurate information and legal advice about your trademark rights and the registration process in the United States.

If you are domiciled in the United States, you are not required to have a U.S.-licensed attorney represent you, but we strongly encourage you to hire one who specializes in trademark law to guide you through the application process. Although USPTO staff can provide information about the federal application process, USPTO employees cannot give you legal advice or help you fill out forms.

Access Legal Care registers Trademarks and Copyrights for your business in all 50 states. Our services include: Filing of trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO); a basic federal direct-hit search of the federal trademark database for direct conflicts with your trademark; color adjustment and compilation of your trademark specimens and designs; Email delivery of your trademark application; Electronic copy of your trademark application; respond to and make changes to your application based on any initial communications from USPTO; 60 days unlimited legal advice.

WORKER’S COMPENSATION

Workers’ compensation provides cash and medical benefits to workers who are injured or become ill in the course of their employment and provides money to the survivors of workers killed on the job. Benefits are provided without regard to fault and are the exclusive remedy for workplace injuries, illnesses, and deaths. Nearly all workers in the United States are covered by workers’ compensation. 

Access Legal Care lawyers assist people throughout the U.S.A. with their worker’s compensation claims. Our fees are always contingency fees, meaning you pay nothing unless we win money for you, and then our fee is taken out of the money that we get for you. It is a win-win situation.
