What can't Bankruptcy do for Me?

There are some debts that bankruptcy will not help you with:

  • Generally bankruptcy will not help you against a secured creditor, unless you are willing to relinquish the security interest. This may be a good option for an upside down property or mortgage where the asset is worth substantially less than the amount that is owed on the loan.
  • A bankruptcy will not help you eliminate alimony or child support obligations
  • Generally you cannot wipe out student loans, unless you have an undue hardship so that would would not be able to use the training you received.
  • A bankruptcy will not often let you eliminate tax debt. Although you may be able to reduce it in some situations.
  • A bankruptcy will not eliminate debts that are not included in the bankruptcy.
Client Reviews
"As a real estate agent, I have been involved with many property transactions where I needed a probate attorney to help facilitate the transaction. I have used the services of Mr. Goldman and his staff over the last several years and continue to use them on a regular basis. His office has been able to navigate the court system and help estates sell their property quickly and efficiently..." Michael Starling
"I've had Mr. Goldman do my entire estate planning as well as my gun trust. I highly recommend him and his firm. If you're planning a gun trust, trust no one else Mr. Goldman is one of if not the best versed on this topic." Howard
“Great service is an understatement. We bought several properties that Mr. Goldman handled for his clients. The communication and explanation of everything was terrific. I would definitely recommend him for all of your real estate needs.” Kassandra
“After struggling with 2 probate cases prior to hiring attorney Goldman I was extremely apprehensive during the hiring phase. Not only did Attorney Goldman assure me they could take care of this his office was wonderful. Jennifer was assigned to my case and she was wonderful and were able to guide another probate case I had saving me additional time and frustration. Highly recommend this office.” Debbie
