If you’re looking to file bankruptcy in the Carmichael, CA area, you may have many questions. To start, you may want to know if there are any experienced attorneys in the area. From there, you’ll need to decide the type of bankruptcy you want to file based on your income, assets and debt you’re looking to discharge.
Many Attorneys to Choose From
Luckily, there are a few different bankruptcy law firms to choose from. You can select from Michael Johnson, an experienced bankruptcy attorney in the Carmichael area. Or choose attorney Peter Cianchetta, another experienced bankruptcy lawyer. Avvo.com lists a few more experienced bankruptcy attorneys in the Carmichael area.
Determining the Type of Bankruptcy to File
The next thing on your to-do list is to determine the type of bankruptcy you want to file. Filing for individual bankruptcy is done through Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. Chapter 7 essentially wipes out your unsecured debt and allows you to start over completely. In order to qualify for Chapter 7, you must have little to no disposable income. Because you have no income, your assets are liquidated in order for you to pay as much to your creditors as possible. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is usually discharged within a few short months. The bankruptcy attorney you select can help you determine if you qualify.
If you don’t qualify for Chapter 7, you’ll need to consider Chapter 13. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is for those that have a steady, reliable income. With this plan, you’ll determine how much you have in unsecured debt and work with the bankruptcy trustee to set up a payment plan based on your income and other monthly payments, such as your mortgage or car payment. You make one payment each month to the bankruptcy trustee who then distributes your payment to your creditors. Chapter 13 helps to prevent any pending foreclosure on your home.
Contact a few different bankruptcy attorneys and discuss your options with each, and retain an attorney who has experience and is someone you feel comfortable with. Filing for bankruptcy is a big decision and not one to be taken lightly.
Carmichael, California was founded by a man named Dan Carmichael in the early 1900s. Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Carmichael made his way to California in 1885 at the age of 18. He spent about a decade working at various jobs before joining a real estate company that he eventually bought out in 1900. Active in politics, Carmichael was at various times treasurer and mayor of California.
He wasn’t the first person to have a claim on the land that eventually became Carmichael. In 1844, a man named Joel P. Dedman was given 20,000 acres in a land grant. Carmichael purchased 2,000 acres of that property for around $150,000 to $200,000 and advertised it in 1909 as available for purchase in lots of 10 acres. He called it Carmichael Colony 1. Later, he bought another 2,000 acres that were part of the former Del Paso Rancho Mexican grant that was given to Eliab Grimes, also in 1844, and this became Carmichael Colony 2.
The area that is Carmichael today was once inhabited by the Maidu Indians. They were there at least 3,000 years ago, and it is believed that as settlers came west, they were driven out. Carmichael himself never settled in his namesake. His family continued to live in Sacramento. The first settlers in present-day Carmichael were a couple named Charles and Mary Deterding, and the site they purchased is today known as Ancil Hoffman Park.
Carmichael the man did not fare as well as the city named after him. Reportedly, he had no money when he died in San Francisco in 1936. His city, however, continued to thrive. The population grew to 300 families by the late 1920s, and over the next two decades, the population increased to more than 4,000. It continued to grow into the present day.
