DIVORCE and BANKRUPTCY is a unique combination that makes Lilah’s practice that much valuable and insightful for clients. Many divorce clients are facing debt issues that also need to be addressed. Divorce clients oftentimes do not realize their options for bankruptcy, nor the planning that my be needed in combination with their divorce. Lilah receives referrals from other family law attorneys who trust her to work with their divorce clients, with a full service approach including working with the attorney as to timing, explaining how the bankruptcy solves some problems in their client’s divorce or frees up some income to be applied towards child support or maintenance to the other party, or analyzing whether there are some non-bankruptcy alternatives that will better suite the individual.
CHAPTER 128 Plans to help clients repay debt without filing a bankruptcy. Chapter 128 is a Wisconsin debt payment program that allows for repayment of debts at 0% interest, with one payment per month to a trustee. It works well for parties that just need time to pay their debts. A Chapter 128 repays your debt in an organized fashion, which may help your credit rating. The cost to file a Chapter 128 is much less than a federal bankruptcy. There are many benefits to consider a Chapter 128, and Lilah can help you decide what is best for your situation.
