Want Proper Bankruptcy Representation in Delaware?

Talk With an Experienced Delaware Bankruptcy Attorney

The Law Office of Vivian Houghton provides bankruptcy, real estate, and probate services for individuals and entities and is experienced in the various aspects of bankruptcy, real estate, and probate law.

Choosing to file bankruptcy can be a difficult decision. A Delaware bankruptcy lawyer can help an individual choose whether filing bankruptcy is the proper route. If one is in foreclosure or has received a notice of foreclosure, filing bankruptcy can save his or her home. Depending on the stage of the foreclosure process, the home may possibly be saved.

With the new bankruptcy rules, not everyone qualifies to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which erases most debts. A Delaware bankruptcy lawyer can help determine whether an individual qualifies for Chapter 7. Even if a person thinks he or she does not qualify, he or she should contact a Delaware bankruptcy attorney. There are deductions that can be taken, which may bring his or her income to a qualifying level.

For those who do not qualify but need to file bankruptcy, the Law Office of Vivian Houghton can help with a Chapter 13 bankruptcy reorganization filing. Ms. Houghton will help the individual create a bankruptcy plan and will attend the creditor’s meetings with the debtor.

The Law Office of Vivian Houghton also provides probate information for long term financial management. Wills, trusts, living wills, and designation of a health care surrogate can help an individual manage his or her estate, no matter the size. The Delaware probate attorney can explain any tax consequences of the person’s estate plan and makes sure that the person’s property is distributed according to his or her wishes after his or her death.

The Law Office of Vivian Houghton further provides real estate representation in Delaware. Experienced real estate closings, we can make sure you receive qualified representation in your purchases and refinances.
