Bankruptcy lawyers in Fort Lauderdale / Plantation, North Miami Beach, Coral Gables, and Delray Beach
We can give you honest objective advice based on your specific situation. If you call a firm that only handles bankruptcy, they may not be experienced in the other areas to help you determine when is the most appropriate time to file a bankruptcy. We often see lawyers who are not experienced in these areas file bankruptcies for their clients at a time that is not the most beneficial. You may be able to stay in your house for years without making any mortgage payments. You would generally want to file for bankruptcy protection shortly before the house was to be sold. This would buy you additional time in your house without mortgage payments. If you filed bankruptcy too soon, you may greatly be shortening the amount of time you are living in the house without making mortgage payments. Filing too soon and having to leave your house sooner may cost you thousands of dollars in extra rent or mortgage payments. Having an attorneys that understands not only the bankruptcy proceedings, but the foreclosure process as well, may give you additional years in your home.
