Coleman was once one of the highest paid child stars in history. Despite this, he filed for bankruptcy in 1999, due to carelessly spending his money as well as his long, expensive medical bills. Coleman once even had to work as a security guard, which was a complete downgrade from his star status.

In 1993, Basinger had to file for bankruptcy due to losing $8.1 in a lawsuit. Basinger ended up selling a $20 million dollar town investment to pay of some of her debt.

Hamill, an Olympic champion, once owned the Ice Capades. After a few years, it ended up being a choice that she regretted after she had to file for bankruptcy in 1995 after selling the company.

Three Reasons You Need An Attorney To File Bankruptcy

Over the past few years, many people have struggled financially and have had to decide whether or not filing for bankruptcy would be the best way to get out of debt. If you do decide to file, there are three main reasons why you should hire an attorney.

The first reason why you should hire an attorney if you decide to file for bankruptcy would be because the attorney would consult you on your situation. An attorney will sit with you to decide whether filing would be the best course of action and tell you how you could benefit and what the next steps are.

The second reason why you should hire an attorney would be because they will handle all of the paperwork for you. When you declare you will have to fill out a lot of paperwork. If it is not handled properly, your declaration could become void. An attorney will ensure that this does not occur.

The third reason why you should hire an attorney when filing for bankruptcy is that they will negotiate with creditors. Through effective negotiations, the attorney could save you a lot of money, have your debt expunged, and minimize the effect filing has on your credit.

What are the Steps for Home Foreclosure In Sacramento?

Whenever a home foreclosure is filed in Sacramento, there is a particular set of steps that will occur. The first step requires the lender to file a Notice of Default with the County Recorder. A notice of the filing is sent to the borrower, who then has the option to pay off the delinquent amount plus any foreclosure costs, in effect stopping the foreclosure.

Ninety days later, a Notice of Sale is posted on the property and in one public location near the home. This notice must be published in a local newspaper once each week for three weeks beginning at least twenty days before the final step—the Trustee Sale Auction. The notice must contain certain information, most specifically the date, time, and location of the sale along with the property address and contact information for the trustee. It must also be recorded with the County Recorder at least 14 days prior to the sale or the home foreclosure cannot proceed.

The final step is the Trustee Sale Auction, which is a public auction that is conducted by a representative of the lender. Whoever wins the auction must immediately pay the full amount of their bid in cash or with a cashier’s check. In return, he or she will then receive a trustee’s deed and become the legal owner of the property.

Bankruptcy Exit Plan

A Roseville bankrutpcy attorney explains the Bankruptcy Exit Plan

What is a Debtor’s Plan of Reorganization?
A Debtor’s Plan of reorganization is a method of prioritizing the debtor’s debts and paying off those debts that are of the highest priority with the limited amount of Debtor’s resources, and relieving the Debtor of liability for those debts that there are not enough resources to pay for.
A Chapter 13 bankruptcy provides individuals with a plan of reorganization. The Chapter 13 Plan of Reorganization places individuals on a repayment plan that lasts for a term of three (3) to five (5) years. During that time period, the Chapter 13 plan of reorganization prioritizes debts in the following order:

1) secured debts (are to be paid in full)
2) Priority debts – such as child support arrears and taxes (are to be paid in full)
3) Unsecured debts (are only entitled to a percentage)
Contact your attorney to get a better understanding of what your payments amounts under a Chapter 13 Plan of Reorganization might be.
