When people owe money to creditors, they can often feel overwhelmed by the constant calls and mailings. Asset protection can help. Asset protection is a process of protecting estate assets against attacks by creditors. And the attorneys at Silver, Forrester & Lesser, P.C. in New Windsor, New York, have years of asset protection experience that we use to help you develop effective strategies that really work against creditors.
Asset Protection Through Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Once you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, it automatically stops garnishment of your wages and it stays lawsuits pending against you. It may also help you protect your house against foreclosure if you submit a plan that accounts for payment of the arrears owed.
Under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you may be allowed to cure defaults in your home mortgage by paying the arrearage over as long as three to five years.
Sometimes, people need an asset protection lawyer for circumstances completely beyond their control. They get sick. They lose jobs. And they end up owing more money than they thought they could pay. We understand. At Silver, Forrester & Lesser, P.C., we can help you get back on your feet financially once you've returned to work after an illness or unemployment.
