Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

For The People can type your Chapter 7 Bankruptcy petition, statements and schedules at your direction. We are a debt relief agency and we help people file for chapter 7 bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code.

Chapter 7 is designed for debtors in financial difficulty who do not have the ability to pay their existing debts. Debtors whose debts are primarily consumer debts are subject to a "means test" designed to determine whether the case should be permitted to proceed under chapter 7. If your income is greater than the median income for your state of residence and family size, in some cases, creditors have the right to file a motion requesting that the court dismiss your case under § 707(b) of the Code. It is up to the court to decide whether the case should be dismissed.

Stipulation and Order

The For The People Stipulation and Order can be used in an existing family law case to modify a previous order of the Court. Common orders made as part of a Stipulation and Order include matters related to child support, custody and visitation, and spousal support.

When people "stipulate" to something that means they agree to it. For example, if you and your spouse agree to change the amount of child support being paid, you can both sign a "Stipulation" assuming that the new amount adequately meets the needs of the child, the Court is likely to agree to the change and sign the Order.

Stepparent Adoption

The For The People Stepparent Adoption of a Minor Package contains the standard forms needed for a stepparent to adopt the biological minor child (a child under the age of 18) of his or her spouse.

In a stepparent adoption of a minor, the parental rights of the parent who is not the child's custodial parent are terminated. The reason for the termination could be because the non-custodial parent has not had any contact with the child in many years, has failed to provide any financial support, or was never known to the mother of the child. Adoption then creates a legal relationship between the adopting parent and the child just as if the adopting parent and the child were biologically related.

Incorporation

In somewhat technical terms, a business entity generally refers to an organization that is operated for a profitable or charitable purpose. A business entity has an existence separate and distinct from its owners. It is a separate person in the eyes of the law. The most common types of business entities include C corporations, S corporations, LLC's -- limited liability companies, general partnerships, limited partnerships and non-profit (or not for profit) corporations.

There are many other types of business entities, but they are not as common as those listed. A sole proprietorship is the traditional unincorporated one-person business. For legal and tax purposes, the business is the owner. It has no existence outside the owner and is generally not classified as a business entity.

Wills

A WILL is a legal document. It allows you to choose who receives your belongings and assets after you die. The recipients of your property are called your beneficiaries. A will can also be used to nominate a guardian to care for and raise your minor children as well as a custodian to manage their property and finances. Creating a will also allows you to choose a person to manage the distribution of your assets. This person is called an executor or personal representative.

Trusts

A LIVING TRUST is similar to a will in that you specify who your "stuff" goes to and who you put in charge to carry out your wishes, but it has the added benefit of eliminating the probate process. Eliminating the probate process will save a lot of time and money for your loved ones and avoid the state and the courts from getting involved.

Power of Attorney

A POWER OF ATTORNEY is a legal document that grants another person the right to act on your behalf. The person who signs (executes) a power of attorney is called the principal. The power of attorney for finances and property matters gives legal authority to another person (called an agent or attorney-in-fact) to make property, financial and other legal decisions for the principal.

Name Change

Name changes are sought for many reasons: perhaps you simply do not like your birth name and want a name that better suits you. Perhaps you are making or have made a career change, and feel that your birth name hinders you in your new job. Whatever the reason, name changes are common and usually fairly easy to carry out. You must be at least 18 to ask the court to change your name.

Travel Permission Letter

The For The People Travel Permission Letter form can be used to establish an absent parent's permission for a minor child to travel with a non-custodial parent or other relative or family friend. Airlines, cruise lines, and immigration agents can deny minor children initial boarding or entry to foreign countries without proper proof of identification and citizenship, and a permission letter from the absent or non-custodial parent.
