The ability to apply for debt relief is a Constitutionally-protected right, meaning it was deemed important enough to enter into the founding principles of our country. The laws of Bankruptcy ensure that there is a way for honest and hardworking people to begin again if life’s circumstances make it impossible for them to climb out of debt. Because Bankruptcy laws and protections are under federal Bankruptcy jurisdiction, most filings are done with the help of a Bankruptcy attorney.
Miranda, Magden & Miranda Bankruptcy attorneys are proud of who we help. We focus primarily on Chapter 7 Bankruptcy cases, concentrating on getting those whose income and asset levels qualify for relief under Chapter 7 of the Federal Bankruptcy Code to the rebuilding phase of their lives as quickly and effectively as possible. Our typical Bankruptcy clients include those trapped in questionable lending arrangements prior to the housing collapse, middle-class mothers hit by an uninsured driver coming home from work, laborers that fall short on income despite overtime work, and the family struck by terminal illness, divorce or unemployment. No matter the circumstances that led you to the impossible financial situation you are now in, your Miranda, Magden, & Miranda Bankruptcy attorney can help you begin again.
As foreseen by our country’s founding fathers, the need for hardworking people to have a protected way to start anew, free from debt, and to do so with dignity, is part of who we are. Bankruptcy itself is a legal mechanism that allows an honest person or business to petition the federal courts for a supervised system of relief from the debts that they cannot afford to repay. Bankruptcy courts grant this relief by first ordering an automatic stay (meaning an immediate halt to all collection activity, lawsuits, and foreclosures by creditors) during the Bankruptcy process. With the help of our Bankruptcy attorneys, your case will progress and you will ultimately be granted a discharge order, which eliminates all previously-owed dischargeable debts and gives the petitioner a new financial beginning.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is the most common and generally the quickest type of bankruptcy, usually finishing within 3 to 4 months of a petition filed by your Bankruptcy attorney. Eligibility for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy hinges on demonstrating to the court that your income level (adjusted for the size of the family you support) is insufficient to be able to pay back your creditors. The value of your assets must also be considered, as you must make sure that they do not exceed the amount the state of California allows you to protect under its two different Exemption systems.
Luckily, California is among the most generous states in this regard, and the majority of people who qualify for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy can eliminate all their debts without losing any of their assets. While Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is the most common, in some instances, this will not be the best option for you, and in that case, we will let you know the reasons why and do our best to give you an alternative course of action.

Patricia has been so helpful and provided excellent service. My husband and I are so grateful for all the help she has provided to help me immigrate to the United States. We really could not have gotten through it without her help. A big thank you to Patricia\'s assistant, Ingrid as well for always being prompt with responses and helping us get all the paperwork ready at each stage. I highly recommend Patricia for anyone who needs immigration help.
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..
