In some cases, you need a little help to dig yourself out of a financial hole. If you are facing mounting debt, it can place incredible pressure on all aspects of your life, including your job, your marriage, and more. Without legal assistance, that pressure can become destructive.
While it is not the right path for everyone, bankruptcy can help you gain the breathing room you need. We offer help at all steps of the bankruptcy process.
2Divorce and Family Law
Divorce, child support, custody, and related situations are difficult to handle at best. Adding immigration or financial troubles to the mix only increases the complexity and burden that you must bear. Other family law-related issues you may face include adoption, foster care, child support enforcement, name changes and more.
While all of these areas seem related only to your marital situation, the truth is that life is seldom so black and white. For instance, consider the fact that financial difficulties are the leading cause of divorce in the United States. If you are dealing with money troubles, creditors are calling day and night, and you do not know if you will be able to keep your head above water, it places an immense amount of stress on your relationship.
Add to that the prospect of immigration, which is never a simple situation even under the best conditions. At the Law Offices of Eugene Mogilevsky, LLC, we provide the legal guidance and assistance you need, whether you’re contemplating divorce, fighting for custody of a child, need assistance with child support, or are facing a different type of challenge.
The US has some of the most complex immigration laws in the world. Trying to navigate this area on your own is impossible. The federal government is not likely to offer help, either. Being stuck in limbo about your immigration status, or worse, fearing deportation at any moment, can be incredibly stressful.
Our experienced immigration attorneys work for you in order to ease the situation and help you move forward toward a positive resolution. Our familiarity with US immigration law is born out of firsthand experience. Our founder, Eugene Mogilevsky, immigrated from the Soviet Union and had to learn the immigration rules and laws before even being allowed to attend college.
Whether you are trying to forge a path toward citizenship, seeking a green card, or just need relief from the pressure of your situation, our attorneys are here for you.
4Mortgage Foreclosure Defense
Your home is your single most important asset, but it is also your largest financial liability. This is particularly true when you’re facing a dire employment situation, or you have mounting debts that must be paid. A single late mortgage payment can become two, and then snowball, and before you know it, you’re facing foreclosure.
Our mortgage foreclosure defense attorneys can help you stay in your home, even ease the financial burden you are facing. It may be possible to modify your mortgage, or there may be an error in the chain of title. It may be possible to conduct a short sale in some situations. Whatever the case, we can offer you hope in the face of foreclosure on your home.
A will allows you to dispose of your assets as you see fit. Within this legal document, you make your wishes known about what assets will go to which heirs, how your estate will be handled, who the executor will be, charitable contributions, and a great deal more. We can help ensure that your will is accurate and will hold up in a court of law.
Another consideration in this same area is your power of attorney. This is nothing more than a document that grants someone the legal authority to make decisions in your name. Specific powers of attorney exist for different situations, but they are never valid after the principal’s death, nor does the agent (the individual granted the power of attorney) have the legal authority to handle estate administration.
7Power of Attorney
A general power of attorney grant the agent the ability to act on your behalf in business situations, and even in hiring professionals. A durable power of attorney is generally used if you become mentally incapacitated, and a health care power of attorney allows your designated agent to act on your behalf if you are unable to make your own decisions due to mental incompetence or being unconscious.
At the Law Offices of Eugene Mogilevsky, LLC, we can help with all types of powers of attorney for virtually any needs.
At the Law Offices of Eugene Mogilevsky, LLC, we offer general litigation services to support a broad range of needs not related to criminal litigation. For instance, we are happy to help with everything from real estate contracts to guidance during the business formation process. Again, these areas are often affected by immigration status, as well as marital status, leading to the need for experienced guidance through these murky waters.
