Foreclosure Alternatives

If you've recently received a foreclosure notice from your bank or are behind on your payments, you do have options.  Filing bankruptcy can immediately halt any court actions and foreclosure sale and will give you time to catch up on past due payments. 

Bankruptcy Myths Debunked

MYTH #1:  I've been sued by a creditor so it's too late to file Bankruptcy.
 
FALSE.  Bankruptcy's automatic stay will IMMEDIATELY stop any lawsuit, foreclosure, sheriff sale and/or wage garnishment.  The only way a creditor can attempt or presume legal action is to formally request relief from the automatic stay.
 
 
MYTH #2:  I'll never get a loan again after bankruptcy.
 
FALSE.  After you file bankruptcy your liability and debt-to-income ration is much better after you file bankruptcy than before and past clients have received offers to finance vehicles and for credit cards immediately after the case is discharged.

Florida Divorce Basics

 
Florida is a no-fault divorce state, meaning that you do not have to prove that the other person is at fault, only that the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and there is no chance of getting back together.   
 
You must reside in Florida for at least six months prior to filing your petition and must file in the county where you currently live.  You can prove residency with your Florida Driver’s license or anAffidavit of corroborating Witness.   
 

Are you considering filing for Bankruptcy?

Are you considering filing bankruptcy? A Bankruptcy Petition Preparer may be a good option for you!

BENEFITS OF USING A PETITION PREPARER:

1. Have your bankruptcy forms prepared quickly and accurately
2. Lower cost as compared to an ...attorney
3. File FOR yourself but not BY yourself

Remember that a bankruptcy petition preparer is not an attorney and cannot:

1. Tell you which chapter of bankruptcy to file
2. Tell you not to list certain debts
3. Tell you not to list certain assets
4. Tell you what property is exempt
