Your first mortgage is your most important mortgage, and these days, for most people with two mortgages, the first one eats up all the equity in the property. This will most likely leave the second mortgage completely unsecured. We can help you file an adversary proceeding to strip that lien off your property and leave you with just one mortgage.

With property values dropping dramatically, many more second mortgages are now unsecured, making lien stripping a valuable option. Dedicated to bankruptcy law, our attorneys know how this process works, and can help you take advantage of the current laws to maximize your financial security.

Michigan Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Attorney

In order to get rid of your second mortgage and save your home, you will have to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. When you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you are agreeing to pay a portion of your debt back to your creditors over a three to five year period. You must complete your Chapter 13 case in order to strip the second mortgage lien. You cannot strip a second mortgage through chapter 7 bankruptcy.
