Walker County Bankruptcy Lawyer
A Chapter 13 bankruptcy can help stop the foreclosure process for Walker County, Texas, residents facing the unwanted sale of their home. The first step is to contact an attorney at the firm of Busby & Associate so they can assist with the filing and explanation of process details. For instance, finance companies must give home owners a 20 day notice through first class or certified mail before they can sell the home at an auction held the 1st Tuesday of every month in Texas. Even if you have received this there is still time to reverse the process by filing as quickly as possible with the appropriate court. The Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to make up the back payments over a period of 5 years even if association dues and property taxes are also behind. If you are on your 2nd mortgage but have no property equity from the 1st then you can pay pennies on the dollar while this 2nd lien is being stripped and discharged through the process. Check with your attorney for more details on how you can save your home from foreclosure.
Repossession of a Vehicle
If you are behind on your car payment with any of the dealerships shown below and believe your vehicle is about to be repossessed then you need to speak with a Busby & Associate lawyer. This legal representative can help you file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy which will cover the vehicle so that you can make lower payments through one of two options. The interest rate can be lowered to approximately 5% or instead of paying the owed amount you are now responsible for the fair market value figure. If the vehicle has already been repossessed then an ‘emergency Chapter 13’ bankruptcy will need to be filed within 10 days (per Texas state law) of this event. This will allow the owner to retain the vehicle but still make payments under the bankruptcy.
