Real Debt Solutions For Wisconsin Residents
No matter what your debt-related problem is, we are here to help! Here we share some real Wisconsin “success stories” including some debt problems and solutions that may be similar to your personal situation. Some of the success stories found on this page have resulted from the following services:
SHARON FROM KENOSHA, WISCONSIN
The Debt Problem: Client by the name of Sharon owned a home in Madison, WI. She fell behind over 2 years behind on her property taxes on her home. The City was about to seize her home, and was going to sell it. She started working again, and needed to save her house.
The Debt Solution: Sharon came in to Debt Advisors, and through many tears told us her story. We were able to work with her quickly to resolve the situation. The City was contacted and verified that the property was not yet sold or seized. Chapter 13 bankruptcy was filed for her. A Chapter 13 allows for the city to be paid back property tax arrears through a payment plan. The City agreed to file the claim, and allowed my client to keep her house.
SCOTT OF NEENAH, WISCONSIN
The Debt Problem: On his way to work, the client lost control of his vehicle due to icy roads and got into a car accident. As a result of the accident, the client incurred a $20,000 accident judgment. The Department of Motor Vehicles subsequently suspended the client’s license because of the accident judgment. The client had little means to get to work and make a living.
The Debt Solution: Debt Advisors filed an emergency chapter 7 bankruptcy which wiped out the $20,000 accident judgment. The suspension on the client’s license was revoked and the client was able to resume his commute to his employment.
DALE & HIS WIFE, GREEN BAY WISCONSIN
The Debt Problem: The clients owed two mortgages on their residence. The second mortgage was completely under water with a high interest rate. The clients also did not have the disposable income in order to afford their monthly mortgage payments for their second mortgage payments along with all of the rest of their unsecured debt.
The Debt Solution: After a free consultation, the clients decided to file a chapter 13 bankruptcy with a lawyer from Debt Advisors. Through their chapter 13 bankruptcy, the clients were able to strip the lien on their second mortgage. The clients’ second mortgage ended up being wiped out at the end of their chapter 13 bankruptcy with only a nominal amount of payments made to their second mortgage company through their chapter 13 plan. The clients were also able to pay off the rest of their debt on cents on the dollar through easily managed monthly payments in their chapter 13 bankruptcy.
MICHEAL FROM MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN
The Debt Problem: Single mom with 2 kids had her car repossessed because she was laid-off from work and fell behind on her car payments. She had been called back to work in Waukesha County a few days before the car was repossessed. She needed her car to travel to-and-from work.
The Debt Solution: She met with an experienced attorney at Debt Advisors Law Offices. We advised her to file an emergency chapter 13 petition to compel the creditor to return the vehicle to her. We filed the bankruptcy petition and her car was returned 3 days later. She is now able to get to work, her car is safe and she is on the road to financial security.
BOB FROM SHEBOYGAN WISCONSIN
The Debt Problem: Bob was in debt due mostly to personal credit cards. In addition, he owed in back taxes from years prior. Creditors and collection agencies had been consistent with their calls and attempts to collect from Bob, but he was not able to pay. To make it worse, the IRS recently began garnishing his wages.
The Solution: A Chapter 7 bankruptcy was filed for Bob, and the IRS was contacted on his behalf. These actions immediately cleared credit card debts and even the back taxes. Wage garnishments ceased, and Bob was finally debt free with a more optimistic financial future.
MARK & HIS WIFE FROM KENOSHA WISCONSIN
The Debt Problem: Clients were underwater on their property which was secured by three mortgages. They were failing to keep up with payments on the mortgages and also maintain their home. The house was in disrepair and needed substantial upkeep. They were in danger of losing their home.
The Debt Solution: A Chapter 13 bankruptcy was filed to deal with all three mortgages, proposing to pay off behind payments on the first two mortgages. Then we filed a lawsuit against the third mortgage company within the bankruptcy to avoid that mortgage. After a contested trial, the Judge ruled in our favor. If the clients successfully complete their Chapter 13, they will not have
