CHAPTER 7 AND 13 BANKRUPTCY
Chapter 7 bankruptcy eliminates bad debt and gives you a fresh start. Most people who file Chapter 7 in Los Angeles keep all of their property and discharge all of their debt. If you have too much credit card debt and cannot afford to pay your bills and living expenses, Chapter 7 may be right for you.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a repayment plan where you pay what you can for a time, after which any remaining balances are discharged. Chapter 13 stops foreclosure and allows you to catch up on past due amounts over time. In Chapter 13 you can also get vehicles back after repossession, reduce loan balances, and remove liens from your property.

PROBATE AND ESTATE PLANNING
Avoiding probate is one of the primary reasons you need an estate plan that includes a revocable living trust. A trust passes property to your beneficiaries as you direct after you pass without the time, expense and delay of probate. Probate is a court supervised process to determine the decedent's beneficiaries, pay their creditors, and distribute the remaining assets to those entitled to them under decedent's last will and testament or California's law of intestate succession. A typical probate case takes between 9 and 18 months to complete, but can take much longer depending on the circumstances of the case.
