Our clients have been surprised to find out that bankruptcy and foreclosure law are more helpful than they first realized. We remind our clients that one of the advantages to filing for bankruptcy (Chapter 7 & Chapter 13) is that the foreclosure process may be stopped. By stopping the foreclosure process our clients are able to start paying their arrearage (also knows as overdue debt) back little by little. This payment plan typically lasts five years (same amount of time as Chapter 13 bankruptcy) and encompasses unpaid property taxes, association arrearages, equity loans, second mortgages and other lines of credit. 
Our clients have been relieved to know that by filing for bankruptcy, they are able to save their home in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy and can eliminate most or all of their credit card debt. Thus, there is a double benefit in filing for bankruptcy – you can save your home and pay off your credit card debt. You then have only one payment to make to the court to satisfy your debts.

Avoiding Foreclosure

Have you been served with a notice of foreclosure? Swift action is critical for protecting your family and your home. The foreclosure defense attorneys at Galarza Law Firm can help save your home. Our expert attorneys understand the complicated foreclosure process and how to negotiate with banks. We will work with your banks on mortgage modifications or payment plans to help you avoid a foreclosure.   
Don’t choose to give up the monetary and personal investments you have put into your home without exploring every option available to you. Current economic troubles and the housing crisis have put banks in a position where it is far more beneficial and profitable for them to restructure your loan through a mortgage modification rather than trying to move foreclosed property in a difficult market.
Banks are more willing than ever to work with you.
