Tampa Bankruptcy Attorney
There are many reasons why people find themselves in financial distress. A serious injury or illness can result in prohibitively expensive medical bills, or an extended period of unemployment can cause all the household bills to pile up with no way to pay for them. For some, a divorce and the distribution of the home and other property can deal a crippling blow to one’s personal finances. Others may have bought more home than they could afford or been talked into an adjustable rate mortgage they didn’t understand, only to see the value of their home plummet in the housing market collapse while the mortgage interest rate reset and skyrocketed. Some may simply not have learned how to budget and manage their finances effectively. With credit card interest rates at 25% and higher, it doesn’t take too long once you fall behind before you feel like you can never catch up. Contact our Tampa bankruptcy & foreclosure attorneys today. We can help.
In all of these scenarios, bankruptcy provides an effective way to deal with unmanageable debt. With Chapter 7, you can wipe the slate clean and make a fresh start virtually debt-free. With Chapter 13, you can save your home from foreclosure and catch up on your bills over time without being harassed by bill collectors. The bankruptcy attorneys at All Family Law Group help people in Tampa, Clearwater, and throughout the Tampa Bay area and Hillsborough County find the solution that is right for them. We are experienced in the complexities and finer points of filing Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.
Save Your Home From Foreclosure
If you cannot keep up with your mortgage payments, we may be able to help you with a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Not only can a bankruptcy help free up your disposable income, but there are specific things you can do in bankruptcy to save your home, like obtain a loan modification or strip away a second or third mortgage. We can also help you with alternatives outside of bankruptcy, such as negotiating a short sale or a deed in lieu of foreclosure with the bank. Of course, we will analyze your entire situation and if there is evidence that you have been a victim of predatory lending or wrongful foreclosure, we can provide a strong and effective defense to the foreclosure in court.
