2020 has been a year for the history books for many reasons, with the most defining reason being the COVID-19 pandemic. This pandemic altered our lives for most of the year in many unprecedented ways, and the effects will likely be long-lasting. Specifically, many households and small business owners will feel crushing financial repercussions of the pandemic well into the future.
If you are facing unpaid debts and other financial struggles due to the pandemic, you should not wait to consult with a COVID-19 Bankruptcy lawyer in Monterey County. You are definitely not alone, and the law office of Miranda, Magden & Miranda, LLP, is ready to help people in your situation. Contact us directly for more information today.
As of September 2020, more than six million people in the United States contracted COVID-19. A percentage of these people needed to be hospitalized, and hospitalization often lasts for weeks. Stints in the intensive care unit (ICU) result in astronomical medical bills, and the effects of a serious case of COVID-19 are expected to last for months or years. Such unexpected medical bills can be nearly impossible to pay.
In addition to the risks of contracting Coronavirus and its resulting medical bills, tens of millions of people were laid off or temporarily unable to work for months. Some households went to a single-earner status as one parent stayed home due to schools or daycares closing. While there was some financial support from state and federal governments, it was not enough to keep all households afloat.
Many people in Monterey County are proud to own small businesses, yet many of these same people struggled during 2020. Some businesses had to shut their doors, lost customers and clients, lost their workforce, or had to impose costly restrictions to operate on a limited basis. Many small businesses had to close their doors – or might in the near future – with debts that are unresolved.
To make matters even worse, reports indicate that the divorce rate skyrocketed from March until July 2020. The pandemic put excessive stress on marriages, and reports of domestic violence increased during shelter-in-place orders, and some spouses took this opportunity to start the divorce process. Divorce can wreak havoc on your finances, and you want to be in a good position moving forward post-divorce.
Whether your household experienced one or a combination of the above circumstances, you likely have debts that you cannot pay. It is important to explore debt-relief options now, instead of waiting for the problem – and possibly your credit – to get even worse. For many people, Chapter 7 bankruptcy can be the lifeline they need following the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy helps hundreds of thousands of households and small businesses in the U.S. each year, and more filings will likely occur in 2020 due to COVID-19. The COVID-19 bankruptcy attorneys of Miranda, Magden & Miranda, LLP, are ready to help clients in Monterey County get back on their feet. Contact us for your consultation today.
Thank you Miranda and team for the excellent service provided. Miranda is a compassionate, understating, extremely knowledgeable and professional attorney. Her team was always on top of everything making my legal process less stressful. I could never thank Miranda and her assistant Ingrid for holding my hand throughout this difficult process (literally). Miranda is one of the BEST immigration lawyers ever! I would definitely recommend her.
They represented my custody case and handled it like it is their own case and they are best in Monterey County.
The entire team at MMM are superstars! I appreciate all the time and prep that went into my original case many years ago. And now recently, I asked for some help on a follow-up custody matter that I felt I could handle myself but just needed their expertise to properly represent all the important details. They are knowledgeable, extremely thorough, and prepared me for every possible scenario. I can't thank them enough!
My partner and I sought legal advice on bringing my fiance' to the United States with this office after having called a few immigration attorney offices around Monterey County. Having never sought legal advice before it was a refreshing experience in which we both really felt that Patricia listened intently to our goals and needs, and then not only gave us thorough advice, but also she really showed a lot of empathy with our situation and all the challenges we faced in what we trying to do. I would definitely recommend this office for anyone who is unclear about what..
Working with Patricia was a professional encounter unlike any other, an absolute 5-star experience. From the first moment, we walked into our consultation until the moment our case was closed and my husband walked away with his permanent resident card Patricia was communicative, professional, and thorough. Her team contacted us every step of the way providing valuable process and law changes we would not have been able to catch if we tried to navigate this endeavor alone. Patricia answered our endless question stream with thoughtfulness and care, calling us countless times to ensure we were clear on every piece of..
Last year, I had just moved in the area and needed a family law attorney for a custody case. The process of finding/choosing an attorney could be daunting. However, when I went in for my first consultation with Levi my stress level was immediately mollified. He was personable, which made me feel comfortable to discuss my personal matters freely. I had a lot of questions of the legal process that would take place and he took the time to explain everything with meticulous detail. More importantly, when I called Levi he returned my phone calls in a timely/professional time frame...
