Who Are The Top Real Estate Attorney Specializing In Mortgage Loan Modifications?
Due To An Unexpected Salary Drop In 2009 As A Result Of The Downturn In The Economy, I Would Like To Seek Mortgage Loan Modifications Through The Help Of An Attorney. Serious Answers Only, Please. This Is A Very Serious Matter For Me. Thank You.
An attorney isn't going to help you with that. There is no law, anywhere, that says a mortgage company has to modify your loan.
Read that again: No law...nowhere.
That is why an attorney cannot help you...there is no special paperwork, no law, no special legal argument, nothing an attorney can make.
Even Project Hope is VOLUNTARY for banks to participate in.
All you can do is call the bank and ask...but since 2009 isn't even here yet, I can already tell you that the answer you will get is no.
The reason, is that falls under the catagory of "life" and people's income fluctuates over the 30 years of the typical mortgage loan. If banks modified a loan every time someone's income changed, that is all they would be doing and they would lose money in the refinance sector.
Refinancing is going to be your best option or selling to a home you can afford. If you know your income is going to go down, don't put your home or credit at risk if you know you cannot make the payment.
Description Of A Personal Injury Lawyer?

Body Injury Claim Against Me.?
So I Was In An Accident About A Year Ago And The Other Party Had Filed For A Boy Injury Claim. It Was A Minor Accident In Which Their Bumper Was Damaged And My Driver'S Side Was Scratched Badly. As Far As I Know And I Saw, The Two People In The Opposite Car Were Pretty Good And It Seemed They Didn'T Have Any Fractures. Alright, So We Met Again In The Court When I Went To Collect My Dl And Even At That Time They Were Pretty Good And Came With Their Lawyer. Now, They Are Still Arguing To Get A Body Injury Claim, Most Probably From My Observation For Soft Tissue Injury As They Seemed Fit At Both The Times I Saw Them.
My Real Problem At This Point Is That Now I Am Switching My Insurance And Terminating My Previous Insurance, With That Body Injury Claim Still On File. The Agent With Whom I Had The Previous Insurance Is Very Reluctant In Cancelling The Policy And Tells Me That Cancelling The Policy Might Have Diverse Effects On The Claim And That The Insurance Company Might Not Fight For Me And Would Easily Pay The Liability Of 25K That I Had. As A Result, The Other Party Might Come After Me Suing Me For More Money. Thus, Cancelling The Insurance And Going To Another Company, The Insurance Company With Whom I Still Have The Claim On File Wouldn'T Try Hard To Help Me. Is It So? What Do You Guys Think About It? Would An Insurance Agency Just Give Up 25K Because I Terminated Their Policy, And So That The Other Party Might Ask For Money And Come After Me Filing A Lawsuit?
And Even If The Amount Crosses The Liability, Does The Insurance Agency Still Defend Me To Come To A Proper Settlement Above The Liability Amount So That The Other Party Might Not Come After My Butt To Grab More Money Once The Liability Has Been Paid To Them.
Please Help Me.....This All Stuff Is Too Confusing.
So many issues. No wonder you are confused.
First, the claim is against your current insurer. The claim goes against the policy in effect at the time of the accident.
So, your agent is right. If your current insurer were to cancel you, that would have a very bad effect on your rates. It is better to change insurers before a cancellation becomes in effect. Even if you receive a NOTICE of cancellation, if you change before the cancellation becomes effective, you can honestly answer application questions that you were NOT cancelled (you voluntarily changed BEFORE cancellation).
Moving on... Your insurer has a duty to defend you. However, if they pay the limits of insurance, they have (as a matter of law) fulfilled all obligations under the policy. Even if a claim is not worth much, it does not take much for defense costs to reach $25k. and often they would rather settle and save defense costs and eliminate the possibility of an adverse verdice
HOWEVER, if they settle the case, they would need to get a release of YOUR liability. The reason for this is that, unless they have resolved YOUR liability, they have breached their fiduciary liability to you. Some states allow them to post the entire $25,000 to retire their obligations, but most would hold that the insurer must either settle/retire your liability (in exchange for payment), or provide a defense.
So, lets say that your state allows the insurer to tender their limits of insurance, can the plaintiff go after you for more? The legal answer is yes. However, unless you are independently wealthy, it is virtually unheard of for plaintiffs lawyers to pursue you in excess of your insurance. They have no interest in garnishing your wages or selling your property. They are after the easy money -- insurance funds. I would not worry about the plaintiffs going after you personally, it is virtually unheard of.
Whether or not you terminate the insurer will make virtually no difference to their defense posture. Some settle easier than others, but with such a small policy, your terminating their insurance will have almost no impact on their litigation strategy.
The reason for this is simple. The insurer's sales and claims departments are completely separate. Even the underwriters do not deal with individual claims. What this means is that the claims people do not know (or care) who you are currently insured by. They follow their own procedures without regard to sales.
This is different when you get into business policies and products liability policies for large companies. But then you are talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars in premiums (if not more), and usually a deductible (or self insured retention) of $25,000 or more. There, the client's views on settlement can (but need not) matter more.

Should I Get An Immigration Lawyer?
I'M A Citizen Of The United States And My Husband Is A Citizen Of Yes Mexico.. Is It Better To Get A Lawyer To File To Make Him Legal Or To Do It Ourselves? How Hard Is It To File The Forms?
I would suggest getting an immigration lawyer if you're not comfortable learning the innuendo of filing straight forward forms.It basically requires that you READ the application BEFORE filing it.You also never mentioned where the current location of you husband was if he is in the US & worse entered illegally you can NOT petitition for him on US soil.
You would actually be subjecting him to immigration enforcement when it comes at the interview stage[deportation].If however,he came in the US legally but overstayed then he should be just fine.
If this is too confusing you require a lawyer or should seek out some more help such as those over at http://www.immigrate2us.net/
