Who Will Know About My Bankruptcy?

A good question that bankruptcy attorneys hear every day is, "Who will know about my bankruptcy?" Generally speaking, bankruptcy is a confidential process, however, the Bankruptcy Code and Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure require that notice of one's bankruptcy case must be sent to certain individuals and businesses.

Short Sales, Taxes, and Bankruptcy

A short sale is the sale of real estate for less than what is owed on the property. Unfortunately, short sales have become common in today's real estate market, where real estate prices have dropped and many home owners are no longer able to pay their mortgages.

A chapter 13 bankruptcy filing can get rid of your 2nd Mortgage or Home Equity Loan

With the downturn of the real estate market many clients are taking advantage of the Chapter 13 laws that allow them to strip (get rid of ) 2nd, 3rd or home equity mortgages that are entirely unsecured. If you own a home that has multiple mortgages on it and if your home is worth less than what you owe on the 1st mortgage then we may be able to wipe out and get rid of any other inferior mortgages on your house. Please call me, Attorney James Miller at 414-326-9231 to get to see if you qualify.

IRS and Tax Liens

Good news! In February the IRS announced new rules that limit the damage to your credit score if you get a lien filed against you for an IRS tax debt. It use to be that a tax lien would bring down your credit score as much as 200 points and it stayed on your record for 7 years. But now the feds will grant more taxpayers so-called lien withdrawals that remove the lien blemishes from their credit report as soon as they pay the bill or enroll in an approved payment plan. And, IRS can no longer file a lien unless your unpaid taxes total more than $10,000.

My Children's Belongings in Bankruptcy
