Preventing Eviction Through Debt Reorganization
In the process of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, unpaid rent is treated similarly to past due mortgage payments. Reorganizing this debt into a more affordable plan buys you time and allows you to catch up on missed payments. Keeping a roof over your head during such uncertain times is paramount to the attorneys at Reed Law Firm, P.A.
