I have seen Debtors lose their homes because Bankruptcy Judges’ hands were tired.  These judges could not change outrageously high interest rates on an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) after the interest rate adjusted upwards more than 10% in some cases.

I know this new law will save our homes because I have studied and practiced bankruptcy law for more than 15 years.  You don’t have to know the ins and outs of the federal bankruptcy laws to call your Senators, however.  What do you have to lose?  … YOUR HOME!  

Here’s a communication I received from an association of consumer bankruptcy attorneys who represent the best interests of Debtors.  They are called the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys.  Everyone calls it NACBA for short.  I am a member, and I support NACBA.

S.61 – the mortgage modification legislation currently pending in the Senate – is not going to come up for a vote unless we can generate a significant amount of support for it.
In other words, unless NACBA members mobilize to get phone calls and emails going to Senators’ offices, the proposal will not move forward. This is our last chance to get it passed. We know that the banking industry, community banks, and credit unions are flooding Senate offices with calls in opposition. Where are our voices?
The bottom line: passage of the mortgage modification legislation depends on you – there is no one else who can generate the kind of heat on Senators that our members can. NACBA’s leadership and legislative team are working overtime to keep up the momentum – but they cannot do it alone.
Even if you and your contacts called and wrote to Senators during House consideration of the measure, you must gear up and do it all over again.

Again, it’s EASY.  Just ask everyone and anyone you know – staff, clients, friends, family, and colleagues – to phone AND email in by following the directions below:

We can make the difference this time – if you make a commitment to get this done!
