The recent economic difficulties in the U.S. have had a drastic impact on homeowners. Foreclosures are at an all-time high and as a result, there are a number of mortgage modification programs available to homeowners. These programs have reduced the number of households that are filing for bankruptcy. Unfortunately, many of these individuals should be filing for bankruptcy instead of pursuing a mortgage or loan modification. This may only delay the inevitable bankruptcy filing and put you deeper into debt.

Don’t Delay Filing for Bankruptcy
One of the issues that clients do not often realize is that the modification process in most cases will only serve to delay the serious need for clients to proceed with bankruptcy. In many cases, the consumer ends up worse for waiting, as they may sink deeper into financial ruin.
A Chapter 13 filing may allow us to negotiate with your lender for lower payments. This is a more protected way of going about mortgage modification. Not only are you protected by the Chapter 13 filing, but you are also protected by a lawyer who has your best interests in mind.

We are dedicated to helping clients explore their options and working through mortgage modifications if it is appropriate or bankruptcy as an alternative.
