Drowning in a Bankruptcy Issue in Delaware?

An Experienced Delaware Real Estate and Bankruptcy Law Firm Can Help

The Law Office of Vivian Houghton is a Delaware bankruptcy, real estate, and probate law firm that helps individuals through the real estate process, and probate process, including Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. Our staff of four paralegals and legal assistants is experienced in Chapter 7, Chapter 13, real estate, and probate matters. We provide our clients with the best, quickest service allowed by court time frames.

Bankruptcy is a personal decision that should not be made lightly. Our team of experienced lawyers and staff helps our clients with bankruptcy. Ms. Houghton is up to date on all of the new bankruptcy rules and foreclosure programs, allowing her to help her clients make an intelligent decision regarding their finances.

While the new bankruptcy rules make it harder to qualify for a Chapter 7, there are several deductions that can be taken, so even if you do not think you can qualify, visit a Delaware bankruptcy lawyer anyway. These deductions may bring a client’s income below the new threshold, allowing him or her to file for bankruptcy under Chapter 7.

Should a client not qualify for Chapter 7, even with the deductions, this Delaware bankruptcy lawyer can help him or her choose a Chapter 13 reorganization. Chapter 13 reorganization involves putting together a repayment plan.

The Law Office of Vivian Houghton is also an experienced Delaware probate attorney. The Delaware probate lawyer can help clients draft the pertinent documents for long-term financial stability for children and grandchildren. No matter the size of one’s estate, a person should have a will to dictate how his or her assets will be distributed after his or her death, a living will and a designation of health care surrogate. The health care surrogate should know your wishes and can make medical decisions if you are incapable of doing it yourself.

If you are in the process of a real estate transaction, the Law Offices of Vivian Houghton can help. Our staff is experienced with providing qualified representation for those involved with real estate closings, purchases, and refinances.
