Can You Keep The House If You File Bankruptcy?
Can you keep the house if you file bankruptcy or after a divorce in Shepherdsville or anywhere in Bullitt County Kentucky? Of course, there are many options available including the ability to put together a plan spread across 5 years that allows you to get back on your feet. There is a special form of bankruptcy, Chapter 13, for those who have a home or other things which are important to them such as a car, truck or valuable collections. We will work with you to determine what is owed and to whom, and develop a plan that will help you to move forward in a way that is best for your unique situation.
We are able to resolve many seemingly impossible financial challenges such as several late mortgage payments or even foreclosure, often for a small amount when compared to what is presently owed. Chapter 13 is designed to help most people to develop a reasonable plan that they are comfortable with, a plan with affordable payments you can make now and in the next 5 years to get back into a position of good credit and financial health over the period of a few years.
