A home is more than the house in which you live. It’s where birthday candles are blown out, where meals are shared, and where families form memories together. I’m a bankruptcy lawyer Memphis TN trusts, but I’m also a father and a husband. I know the joy of watching your child grow up within the walls of the place you call home. And I understand how heartbreaking it is when that home is taken away from you — often because of unavoidable financial hardships that aren’t anyone’s “fault.”
Over the past 30 years, I have helped thousands of people facing foreclosure keep their homes. You might be wondering, How? The answer is simple: bankruptcy.
We fight hard to save your home.
I’ll share one of my success stories. There was a man who lived in my community, a real nice guy. He was hard-working and proud of his business, but recently he’d faced some setbacks. Before he even became a client, I told him as an acquaintance to nip the problem in the bud before it was too late. I knew all too well, from years of practicing law as a bankruptcy lawyer Memphis TN counts on, how his story could end.
I told him, “One of these days, you’ll find a stranger knocking on your door at 5 in the morning, telling you to put all of your cherished belongings out on the street.”
Sadly, that day did come.
Filing bankruptcy will stop foreclosure in its tracks.
Bankruptcy is a unique solution in its ability to give you financial freedom in the long term. But many people facing foreclosure try other approaches first. Often, they seek help from a foreclosure defense attorney. In most cases, that method does not work out so well — only after the clients have shelled out $5,000–10,000.
There are different types of bankruptcy. A Chapter 13 is best suited to financial situations that involve foreclosure. Here are a few reasons that this is your best bet to keep your home:
- Filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy will immediately stop foreclosure.
- It allows you to take your loan out of default through affordable payments — the key word is affordable — spread out over time.
- It brings instant certainty. As long as you keep making those payments, you can rest easy each night, knowing that your home is yours.
