      Posted by Jesse Horoshak on January 7

      Posted by Margaret Henehan on May 6

      When you are thinking about filing a bankruptcy, consumers have two choices. To file a chapter 7 bankruptcy or a chapter 13 bankruptcy. There are other types of bankruptcies that you might hear about in the news, such as the bankruptcies Donald Trump has filed. Trump filed bankruptcy on his businesses and not on his personal debt.

      How do Death & Taxes Affect My Maple Grove MN Bankruptcy? (Part 2)

      Posted by William Kain on April 21

      I wrote in an earlier blog, Death, Taxes & Maple Grove MN Bankruptcy, that under certain circumstances, an individual who has tax liabilities can sometimes have these tax liabilities discharged in a bankruptcy case. I noted, though, that discharge is available only in very specific circumstances: the tax owed must be income tax, the tax liability must be “old” and returns must have been filed in a timely fashion. While some people who have tax problems meet these criteria, most of my clients do not. So the tax problem that they have is not going to disappear simply by filing a bankruptcy case. So what can we do about tax liability that isn’t discharged in a bankruptcy case?

      Do I Really Need My Maple Grove MN Bankruptcy Attorneys To File?

      Posted by William Kain on April 11

      If you’re an individual in Minnesota, then technically you don’t need an attorney to file bankruptcy. The constitution of the United States allows anyone to file bankruptcy on their own. This is also known as a “pro se” filing. However, you have to file several forms and schedules with the bankruptcy court so if you choose this route, you need to be very, very careful. The consequences of filing improperly are severe. You could be taking a chance at losing your car, your house or your retirement account. You have to know what you’re doing and that’s why hiring your Maple Grove Bankruptcy Attorneys at Kain & Scott is desirable.

      How Hard Can it Be to File w/o My Maple Grove MN Bankruptcy Attorneys?

      Posted by Margaret Henehan on April 8

      Do i really need my Maple Grove MN Bankruptcy Attorneys? As someone who used to work with low income clients at a non-profit, I came across this question a lot. With the rise of "do it yourself legal”, online more and more people think about this question when they are looking to get divorced, write a will and even file bankruptcy. When someone chooses to go forward without hiring an attorney, they are called “pro se.” However, bankruptcy is different from other areas of law in a lot of respects, it has its own court system and its own set of laws. This makes even attorneys that practice in other areas of law leery of stepping foot into bankruptcy court.

      The Bankruptcy Attorneys in Maple Grove, MN and I spend our workdays meeting with people who are facing significant debt problems.

      Posted by Wesley Scott on October 27

I had enjoyed a good life and I was looking forward to enjoying my retirement with my family, until I received the news that no one wants to hear — “you have cancer.” Those first few weeks were spent in doctors’ offices discussing treatment options and attorneys’ offices preparing for the worst-case scenario. I fought cancer and I won! I have been in remission now for five years; however, the fight was very long and very costly.
