Kent, Washington, Bankruptcy Lawyers
Long-time residents of Kent have seen their hometown grow from a small town focused on farming and steel to a leader in the global aerospace industry. Its proximity to Seattle and Tacoma and ease of transportation along the I-5 corridor have also contributed to the area’s desirability. Although giants like Boeing and Amazon continue to employ area residents, many of these jobs haven’t kept up with the skyrocketing cost of living.
Between lagging wages, increasing fuel costs, and other increasing day-to-day expenses, many Kent families aren’t making ends meet. A significant medical expense or loss of income can be devastating. Many worry about losing their family homes due to rising home values and increased property taxes.
If you’re trapped in a spiral of financial stress and instability, using consumer bankruptcy laws may help you relieve your debt and restore your sense of security.
The attorneys at the Symmes Law Group, PLLC, advise clients on all matters related to consumer bankruptcy filings. Along with helping individuals seek protection under Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 of the United States Bankruptcy Code, we also offer other debt-relief services that can help restore your financial stability. These include:
- Debt negotiation and settlement
- Mortgage Loan Modification Assistance
- Real Estate Short Sale or Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure Negotiations
- Recovery of Surplus Funds Post Foreclosure Sale
- Estate Planning and Probate
- Foreclosure defense mediation
Immediately Stop Creditor Harassment
One immediate advantage of filing a bankruptcy case is the “automatic stay”. This part of the law stops most collection efforts, including phone calls, texts, and harassment from bill and debt collectors. It also puts the brakes on any pending foreclosure proceedings. The automatic stay pauses everything until your bankruptcy is finalized and your debts are resolved.
Convenient, Online Case Filing
Bankruptcy petitions for Kent and other King County residents are handled by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Washington. This court has physical locations in Seattle and Tacoma, but it’s unlikely you’ll need to make the trek to appear in person — nearly everything related to your case can be handled online in most cases.
- A Petition for Bankruptcy and other case documents will be filed using a secure online filing system that safeguards your sensitive financial information.
- Court hearings are held by teleconference using the court’s secure telecommunications platform.
- Secure online document management, signing, and authentication are safe, convenient, and efficient.
Best of all, the Symmes Law Group, PLLC, can help you through the entire process using whatever method of communication you prefer. We can meet with you via teleconference (using Zoom or other platforms) or over the phone, and we can handle most communication via email or using our document management system.
We’ll help you get the relief you need without causing extra hassles or headaches. You can obtain bankruptcy protection or arrange a loan restructuring without ever setting foot in a courtroom or lawyer’s office.
