DEBT RELIEF: If you are in trouble with debt the first thing to focus on is keeping your car, home, all retirement plans, and avoiding wage garnishment. Bill collectors are not bluffing when they say they will garnish your wages or repossess your car. DO NOT use your TAX REFUND or any of your RETIREMENT savings to pay off debt until you have talked to us.
Divorce: There are two types of divorce. First is the possibility of obtaining a Divorce on an Uncontested basis. This is not a legal option unless your spouse signs a properly written Agreement which is witnessed and signed by a notary. This Agreement must resolve all debts, property ownership, and child related matters including custody, support and visitation. Do not sign anything unless your attorney has reviewed the paperwork. Be very CAUTIOUS about internet divorce forms. Like anything else, you get what you pay for. Unfortunately it costs more to correct those mistakes than to avoid them.
If Uncontested Divorce is not an option then you must file a Contested Divorce. The Aldred Law Firm has over 30 years of successful Contested Divorce results and we will fight for you.
Serious Injury: If you are seriously injured because of the fault or negligence of another, you are entitled to compensation to make you whole. The question is how much money will it take to restore you to your pre-injury condition. For example, you will have permanent lost wages both past and present. The law provides a formula for calculating those lost wages.
You will have to live the rest of your life with a degree of permanent pain from the injury. This is called the mental anguish calculation. If you have loss of use of a body part or function and this is called the permanent injury calculation.
