Is foreclosure the right choice? A Dallas Chapter 7 bankruptcy attorney can help you decide. When you file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, all lenders must cease allocation of debts during the bankruptcy process. This could give you several months to figure out what you’ll do about an impending foreclosure. Use this time wisely to put yourself in a position to make your mortgage payments to stave off the foreclosure process.
Find a Higher Salaried Job or Seek a Promotion
If you simply need to make more money, consider hitting the job market. If you can find a better-paying job, it may make meeting your mortgage payment obligations every month much easier.
If you don’t want to leave your current employer, consider speaking with a supervisor or manager about better paying opportunities within the company. This might lead to a promotion, or it may be a good way to secure more hours.
Ask for Loans from Family and Friends
You might even consider borrowing money from a friend or family member. Even a small loan may help you balance things out, so you can start making your mortgage payments and repay your friend or family member over time.
