Looking for debt advice and to avoid bankruptcy if possible.
House being foreclosed on first hearing 2/28 going to ask for postponement. I have a lawsuit for collection, and a collection attorney letter threatening on returned motorcycle, and other bills we've stopped paying on due to loss of jobs due to down sizing. Just making the utility is a struggle sometimes. What service can you provide and what are the fees for someone to handle these as alternative to bankruptcy? What are your suggestions?
What can you offer me and what is the time frame for expected results? Also, what do you charge?
With a pending foreclosure, a collection lawsuit, a vehicle repossession and additional unpaid bills – you have a lot going on! The best debt advice I can give is to speak with a bankruptcy attorney local to you, or call the debt relief hotline at 800-939-8357 and choose option 3 to connect with a bankruptcy professional.
There are strategies you can use to prolong collections in order to raise cash to settle debts and other alternatives that could help you to avoid filing bankruptcy. But when you say it is a struggle to make basic utility bill payments, raising the cash needed to resolve your issues may not be an option.
Bankruptcy could help delay the foreclosure and would stop collection actions on other debts. Chapter 7 bankrutpcy, where your debts are discharged, would provide the relief you need and a fresh start.
