The site explains that Christopher J Kane grew up in Oregon and earned his bachelor’s degree in Economics from Portland State University in 1991. He became a member of the Oregon State Bar in 1995 after earning his Juris Doctor degree from Northwestern School of Law at Lewis & Clark College.
One of the things that makes his law services unique is that he has always tried to help the “little guy.” He gets tremendous satisfaction from helping clients to get the best results in their legal cases, and has represented both individuals and businesses in many areas of law.
He specializes not just in bankruptcy but also in real estate, estate planning, and business setup. A full list of services is provided on the Christoper J Kane attorney website, where interested parties can find out more about the options provided.
In his latest report, Christopher J Kane explains that filing bankruptcy does not affect the collection of child or spousal support – although it can help in one very important way.
It goes on to say that there is no write off of child and spousal support obligations in a bankruptcy case. Support is excluded from bankruptcy’s legal write-off of most debts.
In addition to this, collection of ongoing monthly support obligations are not stopped, and collection of past-due support obligations are also not stopped under Chapter 7.
The report states: “The most important way that bankruptcy can help is only available under Chapter 13. This help is for any support payments that you had not made on time and continue to owe.”
It adds: “Filing a Chapter 13 case stops all the potentially very aggressive ways that your ex-spouse and/or the support enforcement agency can collect any such past-due support. They have to accept catch-up payments determined by your actual ability to pay.”
