Filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Arizona: Help for veterans to keep their homes

I am a bankruptcy attorney in Arizona ($995/Chapter 7) and was grateful to find out there are organizations that help veterans stay in their homes when they get behind in their payments. The nonprofit organization USA Cares assists post-911 veterans facing foreclosure.

The Veterans Administration also is making an effort to step up and work with veterans to save their homes, however some of the comments left after this article seem rather skeptical about the success they've had dealing with the VA.

Two Congressman introduced the Veterans' Homelessness Prevention and Early Warning Act of 2010 last year, Representative Tim Walz (D-MN) and Senator-elect John Boozman (R-AR). Veterans might try contacting their offices and asking for assistance or direction on where to go for help. Representative David Schweikert (R-AZ) is also assisting homeowners deal with their lenders.

In Orange County, the nonprofit Veterans First has helped numerous veterans. Daniel Foster, a wounded 23-year old army veteran who holds a purple heart and silver star, was unfairly facing foreclosure because there had been a mistake and he was not receiving benefits. Lenders had threatened to foreclose the day before Thanksgiving. Veterans First jumped in and with the help of an anonymous $12,000 donation, saved his home.
