couple and baby
The law office of Karen Ehler specializes in family law, probate, estate planning, and bankruptcy. While each of these branches of law is distinctly unique, they share a common theme: They are highly personal. Whether it’s the joy of adopting a new baby, the anxiety associated with bankruptcy, or the grief inherent in settling the estate of a deceased family member, resolving legal matters shapes the quality of your life. We understand this and treat each case with care and respect.
    • Divorce, custody, adoption, and child support
    • Legally settling the estate of a deceased person, resolving all claims and distribution of the estate
    • The process of accumulating and distributing one’s estate, aiming to pay the least amount of taxes and minimizing probate court involvement
    • There are six types of bankruptcy under the Bankruptcy Code, located at Title 11 of the United States Code:
    • Chapter 7: Basic liquidation for individuals and businesses
    • Chapter 9: Municipal bankruptcy
    • Chapter 11: Rehabilitation or reorganization, used primarily by business debtors, but sometimes by individuals with substantial debts and assets
    • Chapter 12: Rehabilitation for family farmers and fishermen
    • Chapter 13: Rehabilitation with a payment plan for individuals with a regular source of income
    • Chapter 15: Ancillary and other international cases
The most common types of personal bankruptcy for individuals are Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. Corporations and other business forms often file under Chapter 7 or Chapter 11.
