What happens when Mom or Dad can’t make financial or medical decisions for themselves anymore? A Guardianship may be the protection that you are looking for to take care of them in their decline.
Have you fallen behind on your mortgage payments and you’ve been forced to choose between paying your credit card bills or buying food and/or medications? Is the phone ringing off the hook at home and at work? Maybe creditors are calling your family, friends and neighbors. Or maybe your creditor has obtained a judgment against you. You’ve tried to deal with the bank and the creditors and they simply won’t work with you or leave you alone.
Foreclosure may seem imminent – or you may have already been sued. You should know that Merritt Law Office is experienced in home foreclosure defense, and can assist you in working out a plan of action to help you keep the property you value or find a way of relieving you from the soul numbing, bone-crushing debt.
If you think bankruptcy is the wisest course to give you a fresh start, we can assist you there as well. Whether it is a Chapter 13 or a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Mr. Merritt’s legal experience and knowledgeable staff will be your guide as you start on your path toward financial freedom and debt relief.
Creditor harassment is when debt collectors use tactics that are prohibited by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). All consumers have the right to be treated fairly and with respect. The FDCPA was created to protect your rights and allows you to sue unscrupulous debt collectors. If a debt collector has violated your rights, we can help you.
