Many people find that bankruptcy is the right option for them if they are having problems paying their mortgage. First, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy can give you time to catch up on the arrearages that you owe through a Chapter 13 Plan. Also, your Jacksonville Bankruptcy Attorney can file a motion within your bankruptcy requesting that your Judge order the mortgage company attend mediation, where your Jacksonville Bankruptcy Attorney can negotiate on your behalf to reach an amicable resolution. Finally, if you feel that you cannot or do want to catch up on your mortgage and are ready to walk away from your house, surrendering the property in your bankruptcy will shield you from any liability from a deficiency judgment.
If you are behind on your mortgage, contact a Jacksonville Bankruptcy Attorney today to discuss your options.
