Defending Against Foreclosure in Michigan

How can I avoid foreclosure?

Financial problems can be caused by many different situations, including the loss of a job, a divorce or an unexpected health crisis. You can also get into financial trouble by using too many high-interest credit cards or simply spending more than you make. Overwhelming debts can have many undesirable consequences, such as creditor harassment, lawsuits and the repossession of your personal property. If you are a homeowner and can no longer pay your mortgage, you may even lose your home through foreclosure.

Even if your financial situation is bleak, there can by several ways to prevent a foreclosure, including:

  • Loan modification
  • Deed in lieu
  • Strategic default
  • Short sale
  • Filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy

Consulting a Michigan bankruptcy attorney is the best way to find out about your foreclosure options. A lawyer can review your entire financial situation and give you valuable advice regarding your mortgage.

Client Testimonials

  • Professional, competent, empathetic attorney.

    “My husband and I were forced into a position to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. We were devastated and mortified that we had to choose that route, but Tom eased our stress about the filing and court hearing process, as he thoroughly explained what Chapter 7 entails, as well as exactly what to expect during and after the filing process; he was accurate on each point that he advised us on. Tom also kept in frequent contact with us and responded quickly to any questions or concerns that we had while we worked with him. Tom's expertise and tact was invaluable for us, and we will absolutely recommend him to any of our friends and relatives that may find themselves in similar positions to ours. Thank you, Tom, for your dedicated help during this process.”
