If you, like millions of other Americans, are drowning in debt then our Auburn bankruptcy lawyer might can help. You have a right to file for protection under the Bankruptcy Code in order to get some debt relief. If you need a bankruptcy attorney in Auburn, or anywhere else around the Montgomery area, then we can provide some guidance for you and your family.
Life changing events such as divorce, injuries, loss of a job, or even certain personal difficulties that often cause individuals to go through a difficult period in their life can cause their debt to become unbearable. If most of your debts are unsecured (meaning that the debts are not secured by property such as a house or vehicle), then a Chapter 7 bankruptcy might can help eliminate your obligations quickly.
A Chapter 13 bankruptcy can help you get current on a delinquent mortgage and stop a foreclosure immediately. Filing this bankruptcy in Montgomery or Lee County can help people that are wanting to save their home or restructure their debts and pay it back over time.
