Prevent Home Foreclosure
Even if you are months behind on mortgage payments, you can stop the foreclosure process and save your home in a Chapter 13. We encourage you to call our law offices sooner rather than later so that we can counsel you on how to save your home.
Avoid Wage Garnishment
Garnishing wages is difficult. The creditor must file and win a lawsuit against the debtor. If you are the debtor, you will have received a notice of an intent to take money out of your paycheck. Contact an attorney for help as soon as you realize you are unable to continue to pay all of your debt. Seek out legal advice immediately if you have received any document from a court.
Prevent Auto Repossession
If you fall behind even one month in your auto loan payments, many loan contracts state that the loan company can repossess your car— at any time and any place. If you believe you are in danger of having your auto repossessed, contact our experienced lawyer right away to find answers and solutions. If your vehicle has been repossessed, you may still be able to save it through a Chapter 13 reorganization.
Stop Creditor Harassment
Some creditors seem to stop at nothing to collect on their debts. They threaten, they yell and they lie. These are violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. You have rights and we can help you enforce them. If creditor phone calls are causing you stress, sleepless nights, or worry, you are able to stop those phone calls once you retain our office to represent you in a bankruptcy. You can retain us for as little as $100.00.
Retirement and Pension Plans
Retirement plans such as IRAs, 401ks and pensions are protected under the bankruptcy code. Filing for bankruptcy will not put your retirement in jeopardy.
