I can advise you of all your legal options and help you decide if bankruptcy is the best choice for you. I provide solid legal guidance in the following areas:
Bankruptcy law is a unique type of law based on forgiveness rather than punishment. As of October 17, 2005, the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act took effect, enforcing tougher restrictions on consumers trying to file under Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

New Chapter 7 & 13 Mortgage/Loan Modification Program
If you are behind on your mortgage payment I would urge you to contact Attorney Joan Lavery Sirkis to discuss your options regarding the new Chapter 7 & 13 bankruptcy loan modification program. This is a new program The United States Bankruptcy Court District of New Jersey has initiated.
The Mortgage Modification Mediation Program is a new program designed to help qualified Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 debtors keep their homes by modifying their mortgage to an affordable payment. To qualify for this program you must have steady income. The bankruptcy court and your bankruptcy lawyer will work to set up an informal meeting between the borrower and mortgage lender to help get you caught up on your mortgage payment. The mediator cannot force a lender to modify a mortgage, but can help the debtor and the lender reach an agreement. This program is a way for the borrower and the lender to discuss whether modifying the mortgage is possible. The goal is to encourage the borrower and the lender to agree to a permanent mortgage modification which ultimately may help you get caught up on your mortgage payments.
This program is different from others because it has the weight of the Bankruptcy Court behind it to encourage mortgage lenders to cooperate with their borrowers to achieve a mortgage modification that is acceptable to all parties involved. The brand new program for those who need immediate help to save their homes.
