Are you struggling with mortgage payments?

If you are financially struggling to the point that you are having a hard time keeping up your mortgage payments, you are certainly not alone. According to Zillow, nearly 8 million American homeowners are underwater on their mortgage, with many more facing significant financial distress. The stress can be overwhelming, and you may be worried about losing your home.

You should know that you may have legal options available that can be used to stop a foreclosure. At the Ark Law Group, our Everett foreclosure bankruptcy attorneys have extensive experience representing financially distressed homeowners in Washington state. We help our clients utilize their rights under the law to protect their home and their overall financial interests. If you are facing foreclosure, you need to act fast. Get in touch for immediate legal assistance.

What you should know about bankruptcy

While there are many different kinds of bankruptcy, chapter 7 and chapter 13 are the most common. Keep in mind, bankruptcy cannot always be used to save your home, and the drawbacks of filing for bankruptcy (a significantly reduced credit score) might outweigh the benefits.

Filing for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 bankruptcy, often referred to as a liquidation bankruptcy, can sometimes be used to temporarily halt foreclosure proceedings. One of the key benefits of Chapter 7 bankruptcy is that those who file are entitled to an automatic stay, which offers temporary reprieve from all debt collection efforts, including foreclosure efforts. As Chapter 7 allows filing parties to liquidate certain debts, a person may be able to get back into a financially solvent position so that they can save their home.

Filing for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 bankruptcy, often referred to as a restructuring bankruptcy, gives insolvent people an opportunity to create a long-term plan that will help them get back on stable financial footing. For certain Everett homeowners who are facing a home foreclosure, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is the best available option. To qualify for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you must have a viable debt restructuring plan approved by a court.

Non-bankruptcy alternatives

Filing for bankruptcy protection is not the right solution for every financially distressed homeowner. Ultimately, the answer will depend on your specific situation. All homeowners who are facing a foreclosure should consult with a qualified Everett foreclosure bankruptcy attorney who can review their claim and help them find the best path forward.

At the Ark Law Group, our top-rated team has helped more than 2,000 homeowners get much-needed financial relief. We are proud to be strong advocates for borrowers. If you are an Everett, WA homeowner who is facing foreclosure, we are here to assist you.
