Cartersville Bankruptcy Attorney: “Simple Changes would Make the System Better”

In the next few days, I will post a series of articles addressing common problems encountered by bankruptcy lawyers and consumers in the Northern District of Georgia. These problems have a real impact on my clients, primarily from Cartersville, Dallas, Calhoun and Dalton.

Specifically, I will address:

– Why the Northern District of Georgia should implement a General Order that directs employers and State courts to stop wage and bank account garnishments IMMEDIATELY upon the filing of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

– Why the Court should revise the standard § 522(f) Order Avoiding Lien that is issued when the Respondent does not file a response.

– The serious problem that exists regarding venue and forum shopping in the Northern District of Georgia. Many of my colleagues are discouraged that Georgia residents are filing bankruptcy cases in an improper venue – Chattanooga, Tennessee.

– A problem that exists in Georgia’s post-foreclosure judicial confirmation statute, codified in O.C.G.A. § 44-14-161.
