Stop the Stress, How Bankruptcy Can Help You

There are a lot of misconceptions about bankruptcy—one of the biggest being that bankruptcy doesn’t help. Instead of being a positive financial move, consumers look at bankruptcy as a sign of failure and something that will haunt them for the rest of their lives. The truth, however, is bankruptcy can help you in many ways.

Thanks +Harold Good. I think that Ocwen's use of Altisource and Hubzu has decreased and I think scrutiny of this situation has increased. Its been a while since I've heard of a client facing this ... although that might also be due to the decrease in short sales overall.

Great example of what accurate record-keeping can create for a borrower being harassed by the bank.

Good tip - if someone is receiving "robocalls" from a debt collection company on their cell phone, ask them to stop and KEEP RECORDS. These homeowners were able to get a judgment against Bank of America for over $1 million for making 700 "robocalls" AFTER they asked BOA to stop.
These are great referrals for Yesner Law too.

Great advice +Law Office of Neil Burns. I had a consult with a client today and told her the same thing. Nice to know I'm right, or at least someone else is with me!
 
There is no magic formula to reestablishing credit after a bankruptcy filing. A bankruptcy filing remains on the credit report for ten years, and, despite what some unreputable “credit repair” agencies may claim, cannot be removed until the ten years have elapsed. However, once a discharge is entered, the person generally can obtain an auto or even a home loan immediately. The creditor may charge a higher interest rate.

Thank you for your comment +cmonsterblitz  Although there could be legitimate business reasons to form companies in foreign jurisdictions, it certainly does sound a bit fishy when you look at the totality of the circumstances.

"Expected" mortgage fraud makes no sense to me.The article is interesting in that one of the components of "expected" mortgage fraud is the number of family members doing a short sale to another family member to keep the house. Isn't that what the arms-length affidavit is for? Why use it if the lending industry has no confidence in it?

For the fifth straight year, Florida is holding on to its unwanted crown as the mortgage fraud capital of the country.

Fellow attorneys (and other service-oriented businesses), I'd like your feedback on this issue:
We offer free consultations. Yesterday I had a potential client call seeking some advice and information on his legal issue. This person was referred by another attorney who practices in a different area of law. The potential client did not want a consultation. Instead he wanted me to call him "when I could" to "talk to him about his case." That's a consultation, right? What do I do - call when I can, squeeze a reminder into my calendar and hope he's available, or make him schedule a consultation?

Often, mostly for insurance purposes, a parent will put their child’s car in their name alone, or jointly with their child. What happens when the parent decides bankruptcy is a good option? How can we protect the “child’s car” when the parent files Chapter 7 or Chapter 13?

I've had Ted, Joe & the Ecologix team out to my house, first to help remove a possum that was tunneling under my house. They humanely trapped and removed my unwanted "guest." Then, when I had a family of rats living in my bar-b-q grill, I again turned to Ecologix and I haven't seen a rat since. The team is very thorough and professional and I would highly recommend Ecologix Pest Elimination.

Jonathan Fanning did my headshots and I've had the opportunity to refer Jonathan to other clients and referral partners of mine. Jonathan did a great job. The session was fun and was over before I knew it. The pictures came out great and I continue to use them in any advertising, social media posts, etc. In fact, its probably time for new headshots and I'll go to Jonathan again without hesitation.

When I first started working with P3, I just left a previous law firm and had very little internet presence of my own. In the short time I've worked with P3, they have created a website that attracts customers, a logo and brand that are consistent with the vision and mission of my law firm, and they have helped me market the firm through print advertising. With P3's help, we have been able to create a steady stream of paying clients that has allowed me to spend more time working on the business and practicing law.
