If you live in Galveston County, Texas, and have been served a 20 day notice via certified or first class mail for a foreclosure on your home it is important that you retain legal counsel as soon as possible. The firm of Busby & Associates can help you stop the sale of your home which occurs in Texas on the 1st Tuesday of every month by filing for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. The purpose is to give the owner an opportunity to pay the past due amount over a 5 year period while still keeping possession of the home. If you have a 2nd loan on the home but no property equity because of the 1st loan then the secondary note can be paid for pennies on the dollar after it is stripped and discharged during the process. When the home falls under a home association with dues or is past due on property taxes then these may also be brought under the bankruptcy.
Repossession of a Vehicle
A Chapter 13 bankruptcy can help stop the repossession of a vehicle if you owe payments to any of the dealerships listed below. Your Busby & Associate attorney can file this documentation for you and determine if you are eligible for a lower interest rate (around 5%) or the final amount due will be based on the current market value instead of the owed amount. Either option is meant to lower your payment so you can retain the vehicle and stay up to date. An ‘emergency Chapter 13 bankruptcy’can be filed per Texas state law within a 10 day windowof the vehicle already being repossessed so that the owner can assume responsibility for the back payments under the bankruptcy.
