In Louisiana real estate foreclosures are conducted by the local sheriff. Under most circumstances, the filing of a bankruptcy, either chapter 7 or chapter 13, will stop the state court foreclosure proceeding. The case must be filed before the auction actually takes place. The New Orleans bankruptcy attorneys at Kirkpatrick and Associates, on a regular basis, stop Sheriff sales for clients living in New Orleans, Jefferson Parish, St. Tammany Parish, Washington Parish, Terrebonne Parish, St. James Parish, St. John the Baptist Parish, Assumption Parish, and Lafourche Parish. In most cases, our clients are able to save their property by filing for chapter 13 Bankruptcy Court protection. The Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern district of Louisiana is located in New Orleans Louisiana. The chapter 13 bankruptcy gives individuals and families an opportunity to restructure many other debts and in most instances will give them the opportunity to keep the property that they are trying to save. The New Orleans bankruptcy lawyers at Kirkpatrick and Associates focus their efforts on helping their clients maneuver through the complex area of bankruptcy law down the path to financial freedom and a fresh start.
