Arizona law requires that the best interest of the child be the lead consideration above any other.

The Scottsdale bankruptcy attorneys at Canterbury Law Group are uniquely qualified to represent all sides in personal and commercial bankruptcy: debtors, creditors, trustees and committees. Our attorneys offer a range of services to our bankruptcy clients depending upon the individual or company’s unique situation but could include business bankruptcy, Chapter 7, adversary proceedings, restructuring, Chapter 11, creditor representation, Chapter 5 claims and Chapter 13.
Personal Bankruptcy Attorneys in New York, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and San Diego
Chapter 7 bankruptcy, also referred to as the most common type of bankruptcy, provides individuals with a discharge of all debt which are "dischargeable" under the Bankruptcy Code. In a Chapter 7, all of the debtor's non-exempt assets on the petition date are liquidated through the priorities set forth in the Bankruptcy Code. The bankruptcy attorneys at our office will counsel you to ensure your case runs smoothly. Unfortunately, often debtors are not fully informed of all Chapter 7 obligations and risk not receiving a discharge of some or all or their debt.
Chapter 5 bankruptcy deals with the distribution of assets belonging to the debtor, exemptions and exceptions to what type of debts can be discharged and the entire estate. The bankruptcy lawyers at Canterbury Law Group in Scottsdale will help you to achieve the best results possible in your bankruptcy case.
Although Chapter 7 is the most popular type of bankruptcy, we are seeing more individuals, usually with a high net worth, are turning to Chapter 11 to solve their bankruptcy needs. Canterbury Law Group’s dedicated bankruptcy attorneys in Scottsdale have significant experience with Chapter 11 filings, which tend to be very complex, and are capable of filing an individual case under Chapter 11 as mandated by the facts of each individual case.
A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is not a per se liquidation but rather involves a restructuring of debt over a three or five-year period, pursuant to a plan which is filed with, and approved by, the court. This plan allows a debtor to pay its creditors a percentage of the amounts owed to them.
Scottsdale & Phoenix Business Bankruptcy Cases
Business Bankruptcy allows a company to sell assets or liquidate in a controlled manner. Just like other practical business strategies, Scottsdale business bankruptcy should be considered early enough to be a viable strategy to preserve the business’s assets. Bankruptcy can also be an important tool for assisting in an orderly wind down and liquidation of a business and its assets. The Scottsdale bankruptcy lawyers at Canterbury Law Group can help you understand what avenue is best for your business and will represent you through achieving your business goals.
The primary goal of filing business bankruptcy is usually to reorganize a business, which entails a restructuring of the company’s debts so the business can continue to operate and start to thrive. There are many ways business reorganization can be accomplished, ranging from selling assets to closing down sites or reducing personnel. It is absolutely necessary to understand that bankruptcy affords a business the opportunity to propose and implement these changes without the constant threat that creditors can shut the business down permanently.
The bankruptcy lawyers at our office in Scottsdale also have broad experience in representing creditors in multiple industries including lenders, lessors, landlords, retailers, farmers and other PACA claimants. If you recently received notice that one of your customers or clients is filing bankruptcy, you may have to invoke your creditors’ rights immediately in bankruptcy court to preserve your future ability to collect what is still owed to you. Time is often of the essence, so call Canterbury Law Group today to schedule your consultation and begin the process of preserving your rights to be paid.

I’ve litigated against Craig - in fact, we had a really challenging case against each other. My mind changed about him when we had a collaborative law case against each other. He’s fair, he negotiates with energy but he doesn’t manufacture conflict just to run up fees. A lot of lawyers will do this but Craig does the right thing. I recently watched Craig devote time, unpaid, on a Sunday to someone who desperately needed his fair, even-handed and stable approach. Wow. Good lawyer and better person.
