Stopping Foreclosure in Oregon
Many hardworking people in Oregon have found themselves in financial trouble in recent years. A layoff, a serious illness or other misfortune can result in a sharply reduced income, mounting debts and the possibility of foreclosure.
Help for people facing these problems is available, however. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy can stop foreclosure and provide debt relief. You should act quickly to learn about your options and what you need to do to protect yourself from foreclosure and collection lawsuits.
At The Hansen Law Firm, we are experienced bankruptcy lawyers. We provide solutions for people with unmanageable levels of debt, including the discharge of unsecured debts and protection from secured lenders.

Mortgage Foreclosure Attorneys Who Will Stand Up for You
When you discuss your situation with one of our attorneys, we will provide you with an honest and objective evaluation of your case. We will also discuss your options. These include:
Filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy, giving you time to come up with funds to get current on your mortgage or find another place to live.
Stopping payment of your mortgage (which allows you to keep that money), while waiting for a few months before filing bankruptcy.
A short sale (selling your home for less than the outstanding mortgage) with agreement from the lender.
Attempting to keep your home.
Each of these options has drawbacks and benefits. Our firm can provide you with the information you need to make the right decision, given your circumstances.
Protect Yourself From Lenders and Creditors
Simply walking away from an underwater mortgage is dangerous. Doing that can expose you to the possibility of a judgment, which can enable the lender to garnish your wages or bank account. Before you make any decision regarding your mortgage, get legal advice from one of our experienced Portland foreclosure attorneys.
