When threat of foreclosure causes legal status worries

On Behalf of | Oct 25, 2017 | Foreclosure |

Immigrant life in Florida, and throughout the United States, is often quite challenging. For those who entered the state without visas or other residency documents, day-to-day living can often be extremely stressful. Perhaps, you have overcome several status obstacles through the years but have recently been faced with serious financial problems that include the threat of foreclosure on your home.

It’s not uncommon to experience a financial crisis, that’s for sure. Not everyone, however, is faced with the challenge of trying to avoid foreclosure while also trying to avoid possible detainment and deportment. The good news is that it’s often possible to remedy financial crises before the entire foreclosure process unfolds.

Sometimes, all it takes is a few phone calls to a lender, as most want to avoid foreclosure as much as you since taking ownership of a home means added work as they will later have to sell it. You may be able to workout a temporary alternate payment plan for your mortgage and perhaps even avoid in-person meetings, which tend to make people in your situation quite nervous. You may also choose to reach out for support from someone well versed in both real estate and U.S. immigration law.
