Chapter 7 Bankruptcy - Death and Its Consequences

Death, or incompetency, that occurs during the process of a chapter 7 bankruptcy action in Salt Lake and Sandy, Utah, does not stop or terminate the case. In fact, to the extent possible the court will treat the bankruptcy, and attempt to resolve the bankruptcy action, as though the death had never occurred.

How might this affect you? If somebody close to you has passed away during his/her bankruptcy, your rights to life insurance and assets may affected. If this person died before his or her §341 meeting, you may be asked to represent the debtor at the meeting.

Client Reviews
Mckail is an amazing young attorney that knows exactly what to do. More knowledgeable than some of her peers that have been practicing for over 20 years. Very detailed oriented in the entire process. Has no problem confronting other lawyers when it comes to fairness of her clients. Would recommend to anyone going through a divorce to call Atticus Legal Group before anyone else. Marc N.
Mckail Hamilton is professional, she has a great understanding of what the needs and wants of her clients are. She also is able to offer realistic expectations and she works hard to get things done in a timely manner. Mckail made this emotional process a lot more manageable for me. Thanks again. Amy M.
