Legal Answers
Q. Need help to file chapter 7 for my mother, she is being sued by collectors she is 93 and has S.S. and reverse mortgage
A: Sounds like a rather easy bankruptcy case. If she lives in Florida and has less than median income ($41,915 as of 4/1/13), she qualifies for a Chapter 7. See for more information.
Q. Recently filed bankruptcy. Lender says term is up. Predatory lender short term and balloon. only interest need advice
A: Predatory lending is very difficult to prove and, even if proved, the lender still recovers the principal. Note that high interest and balloon term don’t mean that there is a claim for predatory lending.
Q. Can I change my bankruptcy attorney if I don't trust the way he is handling my case?
A: Yes, of course you can.
