Your first obligation is to yourself and your family not to the bank.

The Bank and their attorney won’t explain to you how you can sue them back.

They will record every conversation and then use it against you in court as an admission.

Louisville Kentucky's Bankruptcy and Foreclosure Attorney A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy can do everything a Chapter 7 can – only better.

Perhaps you filed another Chapter 7 less than eight years ago. A Chapter 13 can manage or cure a defaulted secured debt. Read More

How to File Bankruptcy Without Losing Your Home

For over 30 years, almost every person who has come into my office recognized their family was more important than paying the bank. The mistake most people make is in waiting too long to file bankruptcy with an attorney you can trust. Sometimes debtors trust the wrong attorney who puts you into a Chapter 13 just because Chapter 13 pays him higher attorney fees.

You have to plan a bankruptcy early to get the most benefit and keep from losing assets. People often cash in a retirement they could have kept by filing bankruptcy. Never mortgage your home or cash in a retirement to repay debts you can bankrupt. If you transfer property properly, you may be able to keep it.

Attorneys for the bank or mortgage company will not explain to you how to sue the bank back. Trust the advice from an experienced and qualified lawyer you hire instead of the bank’s attorney. If you plan your bankruptcy properly, you should come out of bankruptcy with more than when you started. For people who like to plan first, I wrote this book for you.
