Reviews from other clients throughout North Georgia –

Brian, we received our discharge paperwork today. We wanted to thank you again for all your help and advice. You are a really kind and good person who does more than a “job”. We learned so much and value your hard work. We wanted to make certain you know how much you are appreciated. Please also thank your staff as they are amazing and we could not have accomplished this without their help as well. With gratitude, Marc and Kerri

When we visited the law office of Perrotta & Cahn, we were very much in need of professional assistance. We had no idea what our options would be. Mr Cahn looked at the information we provided, he gave us his professional opinion, but most of all Mr. Cahn answered our questions. He made us feel very at ease through our situation and his staff is always available to answer questions. Mr. Cahn continued answering our questions and made us feel at ease throughout the entire process which included office visits and court appearances. We have and will continue referring our friends and family members to Perrotta & Cahn. Darin & Donna B, Paulding County, GA

Perrotta & Cahn is a top tier law firm with a friendly, easy going way of taking care of business. Brian Cahn has been our go-to guy for personal and now our business legal matters since 2003. He is a pro. GHH – Hiram, GA

I cannot say enough about the law firm of Perrotta & Cahn, specifically my attorney, Mr. Brian Cahn. I was referred to Brian Cahn through a close friend who used his services earlier.

Unfortunately, I was experiencing severe financial difficulty, and I needed to inquire about the possibility of declaring bankruptcy. I was already upset and embarrassed that I was in this situation. However, upon meeting Brian, and explaining my situation to him, I began to feel comfortable and reassured. Brian explained that he would work hard to provide the best outcome for me. He is also an excellent strategist.

Brian was always readily available whenever I had questions or concerns. He is a consummate professional who I felt was extremely dedicated to my case. The services provided to me by Brian Cahn have been invaluable. I also felt his prices were reasonable and fair. The office staff was also very professional and courteous.

Should anyone I know need the services of an attorney, without hesitation, I will always highly recommend Mr. Brian Cahn, of Perrotta, Cahn. Dominic R. – Atlanta, GA

At the darkest time of our lives a very good friend recommended Brian Cahn to help us. We were scared, unsure of how to proceed and unfamiliar with the process. Brian treated us with respect, led us each step of the way and answered all of questions and concerns. He stood beside us and for us in a way that we will never forget. He represented us with integrity and consideration. To say that we highly recommend him is an understatement. We recommend only him and it is our privilege to do so. Pam and Tony W. – Canton GA

My family and I found ourselves in a situation that was unique for us and required a swift decision. Working with Mr. Stephens and Mr. Cahn proved to be efficient, professional, and reliable. The peace-of-mind this law firm gave my family was priceless.”

Good luck and best wishes. We owe you a debt of gratitude – but that’s the only debt we have left!! (pardon the pun). KK and RK

Dallas Paulding Georgia Bankruptcy Lawyer: Eliminating IRS Taxes and Tax Liens in Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy isn’t the right solution for every client, but some of the primary advantages of bankruptcy include:

Ability to discharge income taxes that came due more than 3-years ago. For example: Client filed her 2011 income tax return on or before the April 15th, 2012 deadline; i.e., she did not file an extension.  After April 15th of 2015 (3-years after the original due-date), those 2011 taxes – and any older tax liabilities – become completely dischargeable in bankruptcy.  If an extension was filed, her 2011 income taxes are dischargeable after October 15th of 2015.

Ability to immediately stop wage garnishments, bank account levies, and all other collection activity.

Ability to consolidate non-dischargeable taxes (newer taxes, payroll taxes, and sales taxes, for example) into a 60-month repayment plan with absolutely no penalties. Furthermore, provisions in Georgia and Federal law suggest that trust-fund obligations only flow-through to a responsible corporate individual if the failure to remit was “willful.”  Bankruptcy court provides a venue to challenge these taxes if the responsible individual was sufficiently removed from the day-to-day financial operations of the business.

Ability to eliminate tax liens for pennies on the dollar.  When the I.R.S. files a tax lien against you, that tax lien encumbers ALL of your property.  The only ways to get the tax lien released are (1) to pay the taxes in full, with interest and penalties; (2) get the IRS to agree to an offer in compromise (easier said than done), or (3) eliminate the lien and the taxes through Chapter 13 bankruptcy

For example: Client has an I.R.S. tax lien in the amount of $25,000 for 2005, 2006 and 2007 unpaid taxes.  By filing a Chapter 13, Client can reduce her tax lien to the liquidation value of her personal property and equity in real estate, if any.  Frequently, this value is less than $5,000.  Therefore, we can eliminate the tax lien by paying $5,000 (or less) through the plan, based on Client’s ability to pay, as long as the repayment plan does not exceed 60-months.  In our example, Client could pay $100 per month for 50 months.  At the end of the Chapter 13 plan, the tax debt is discharged and the I.R.S. must cancel the lien.

Ability to offset 1099-C income resulting from a creditor’s cancellation of indebtedness. This “phantom income” is problematic because it usually impacts those taxpayers who can least afford to pay additional taxes. If the taxpayer filed a bankruptcy and discharged the underlying indebtedness, he or she may file a Form 982 and eliminate that tax attribute.

Frederick J. Hanna & Associates Accused of Wrongfully Charging Debtors for Court Error

Another rip-off alert involving collection attorney, Frederick J. Hanna & Associates. I’ve written about this collection firm before, warning my clients and cosumers about the aggressive collection tactics of this collection firm: https://northgabankruptcy.wordpress.com/2011/10/17/are-you-defending-a-lawsuit-or-garnishment-served-by-frederick-j-hanna-associates-things-you-should-know/

Yet again, Channel 46 CBS Atlanta News reports that Frederick J. Hanna & Associates faces new accusations of ripping-off debtors.  According to the report, a class action lawsuit was filed accusing the law firm of garnishing paychecks of debtors for late charges or interest they didn’t legally incur or owe.  Check out the article, and watch Fred Hanna squirm when approached by the investigative reporter, at this link:

Cedartown Bankruptcy Attorney: Common Myths and Misconceptions about Polk County Bankruptcy Cases

Having practiced bankruptcy law, and nothing but bankruptcy law, in our NW Georgia community for almost 20 years, I’ve noticed that a large percentage of clients have assumed that certain “bankruptcy myths” are true. However, I am relieved to tell you that the following Common Myths about Bankruptcy are absolutely false!

I will lose everything I own

Polk County residents, along with residents of any County in the State of Georgia, get to use the revised Georgia state exemptions. Georgia law allows you to maintain a basic standard of living. As a result, you get to keep property to help you get a fresh start. It is very rare for you to lose any real or personal property.

Bankruptcy won’t eliminate a 2nd mortgage

For the most part, all unsecured debt is discharged in the bankruptcy. However, certain types of debt survive the bankruptcy or are very difficult to have discharged. They include student loans, criminal restitution or fines, child support and alimony, and debts incurred as a result of fraud. But did you know that, with the decline in real estate values, this is the PERFECT opportunity to ELIMINATE YOUR 2nd MORTGAGE? When you come in for your free consultation, we will explain how easy it is to get rid of your 2nd mortgage.

I can’t “pick-and-choose” which debts to keep, and which to eliminate

False! Bankruptcy is designed to help you keep the things you need, like a house or a car, while eliminating the baggage, like credit cards and medical bills. You can keep the good debts, and get rid of the baggage.

A bankruptcy ruins my credit for 10 years

A bankruptcy may show up on your credit seven to ten years. However, because a bankruptcy discharge tends to eliminate all of your unsecured debt, you’ll have a clean-slate, or a platform to rebuild your credit. In fact, most of our clients are able to obtain car loans immediately after the bankruptcy, provided they are willing to pay a slightly higher interest rate. Furthermore, FHA guidelines provide that you may qualify for a new mortgage loan, at conventional interest rates, with 18 to 24 months after the bankruptcy. Therefore, just because the bankruptcy appears on your credit, this does not mean you can’t rebuild your score quickly, and finance the things you need.

I can’t file bankruptcy more than once

Not true. If you receive a discharge in a chapter 7, you must wait eight years from the date you filed the bankruptcy to file another chapter 7. In the event that you need to file another bankruptcy sooner, you may file a chapter 13 before that eight year period has expired. However, if it has been less the four years since the chapter 7 was filed, you will not be entitled to another discharge.

Both my spouse and I need to file

False! There are instances where only one spouse needs to file for bankruptcy, especially if just one spouse is on the majority of the debt.

Back taxes always survive the bankruptcy

False! Contrary to popular belief, it IS possible to discharge (eliminate) income taxes that are more than three years old, but to do so, certain conditions must be met. We can also eliminate tax liens!

If you’d like a FREE and CONFIDENTIAL consultation from an experienced lawyer about your rights under the law to re-structure or eliminate debt, please give me a call or send me an e-mail.

Debt Settlement vs. Bankruptcy – Which Option is Better?

Nobody wants to file for bankruptcy, but when creditors become aggressive, all options must be considered. Every situation is different, but here are some things to consider:

Advantages of Debt Settlement:

Settlement of debts has the advantage of avoiding the stigma of bankruptcy. Furthermore, a properly-structured settlement can mitigate the damage to your credit, while substantially lowering the balance.

Many debts can be settled for pennies on the dollar. According to the “Collections and Credit Risk Newsletter”: One of the largest collectors, Midland Funding, has paid more than $2.1 billion to purchase about 40 million accounts with a face value of about $66.4 billion, or about three cents on the dollar, mostly from banks, credit card companies and cellphone companies that had written off the bad debts, the attorney general’s office said.

So, if collection agencies are acquiring the debt from the origianl creditor for as little as 3 cents on the dollar, you can certainly settle the debt at a substantial discount. One debt settlement company advertises an average settlement amount of only 19% of the original debt.

Drawbacks of Debt Settlement:

“Debt Settlement Companies” spend a whole lot of money on TV and radio ads. They also have a long history of problems. See the Federal Trade Commission website for some details –

Although a debt settlement company may be able to settle one or more of your debts, consider the risks associated with these programs before you sign up:
1. These programs often require that you deposit money in a special savings account for 36 months or more before all your debts will be settled. Many people have trouble making these payments long enough to get all (or even some) of their debts settled. They drop out the programs as a result. Before you sign up for a debt settlement program, review your budget carefully to make sure you are financially capable of setting aside the required monthly amounts for the full length of the program.
2. Your creditors have no obligation to agree to negotiate a settlement of the amount you owe. So there is a chance that your debt settlement company will not be able to settle some of your debts — even if you set aside the monthly amounts the program requires. Debt settlement companies also often try to negotiate smaller debts first, leaving interest and fees on large debts to grow.
3. Because debt settlement programs often ask — or encourage — you to stop sending payments directly to your creditors, they may have a negative impact on your credit report and other consequences. For example, your debts may continue to accrue late fees and penalties that can put you further in the hole. You also may get calls from your creditors or debt collectors requesting repayment. You could even be sued for repayment. In some instances, when creditors win a lawsuit, they have the right to garnish your wages or put a lien on your home.Beware of Debt Settlement Scams

Some companies offering debt settlement programs may engage in deception and fail to deliver on the promises they make — for example, promises or “guarantees” to settle all your credit card debts for, say, 30 to 60 percent of the amount you owe. Other companies may try to collect their own fees from you before they have settled any of your debts — a practice prohibited under the FTC’s Telemarketing Sales Rule (TSR) for companies engaged in telemarketing these services. Some fail to explain the risks associated with their programs: for example, that many (or most) consumers drop out without settling their debts, that consumers’ credit reports may suffer, or that debt collectors may continue to call you.Avoid doing business with any company that promises to settle your debt if the company:
•charges any fees before it settles your debts
•touts a “new government program” to bail out personal credit card debt
•guarantees it can make your unsecured debt go away
•tells you to stop communicating with your creditors, but doesn’t explain the serious consequences
•tells you it can stop all debt collection calls and lawsuits
•guarantees that your unsecured debts can be paid off for pennies on the dollar

Researching Debt Settlement Companies
Before you enroll in a debt settlement program, do your homework. You’re making a big decision that involves spending a lot of your money — money that could go toward paying down your debt. Check out the company with your state Attorney General and local consumer protection agency. They can tell you if any consumer complaints are on file about the firm you’re considering doing business with. Ask your state Attorney General if the company is required to be licensed to work in your state and, if so, whether it is.Enter the name of the company name with the word “complaints” into a search engine. Read what others have said about the companies you’re considering, including news about any lawsuits with state or federal regulators for engaging in deceptive or unfair practices.Fees

If you do business with a debt settlement company, you may have to put money in a dedicated bank account, which will be administered by an independent third party. The funds are yours and you are entitled to the interest that accrues. The account administrator may charge you a reasonable fee for account maintenance, and is responsible for transferring funds from your account to pay your creditors and the debt settlement company when settlements occur.A company can charge you only a portion of its full fee for each debt it settles. For example, say you owe money to five creditors. The company successfully negotiates a settlement with one of your creditors. The company can charge you only a portion of its full fee at this time because it still needs to successfully negotiate with four other creditors. Each time the debt settlement company successfully settles a debt with one of your creditors, the company can charge you another portion of its full fee. If the company’s fees are based on a percentage of the amount you save through the settlement, it must tell you both the percentage it charges and the estimated dollar amount it represents. This may be called a “contingency” fee.Disclosure Requirements

Before you sign up for the service, the debt relief company must give you information about the program:
•The price and terms: The company must explain its fees and any conditions on its services.
•Results: The company must tell you how long it will take to get results — how many months or years before it will make an offer to each creditor for a settlement.
•Offers: The company must tell you how much money or the percentage of each outstanding debt you must save before it will make an offer to each creditor on your behalf.
•Non-payment: If the company asks you to stop making payments to your creditors — or if the program relies on you to not make payments — it must tell you about the possible negative consequences of your action, including damage to your credit report and credit score; that your creditors may sue you or continue with the collections process; and that your credit card companies may charge you additional fees and interest, which will increase the amount you owe.

The debt relief company also must tell you that:
•the funds are yours and you are entitled to the interest earned;
•the account administrator is not affiliated with the debt relief provider and doesn’t get referral fees; and
•you may withdraw your money any time without penalty

Tax Consequences
Depending on your financial condition, any savings you get from debt relief services can be considered income and taxable. Credit card companies and others may report settled debt to the IRS, which the IRS considers income, unless you are “insolvent.” Insolvency is when your total debts are more than the fair market value of your total assets. Insolvency can be complex to determine. Talk to a tax professional if are not sure whether you qualify for this exception.

Advantages of Bankruptcy:

Whether filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, certain advantages exist when compared with debt settlement:

■Filing for bankruptcy may stop debt collection activities such as wage garnishment and repossession of a car
■Filing for bankruptcy does not subject a consumer to a tax on forgiven debts
■Filing for bankruptcy offers a fresh start for those unable to repay their debts

Consumer bankruptcy cases are inexpensive. Chapter 13 cases, for example, are filed for a cost of $351. Chapter 7 cases usually cost between $1,000 and $1,600 – so that cost, compared to the amount of debt being eliminated, is usually minimal.

Bankruptcy can give you a fresh start, debt free. You can use your fresh start as a platform to rebuild your credit. We often see situations where our clients rebuild their credit faster AFTER bankruptcy, than they could have while participating in a drawn-out debt settlement program.

Drawbacks of Bankruptcy:

Bankruptcy isn’t the right fit for every case, and it does impact your credit. Some of our clients have too much income, or too many assets, to qualify for the best types of bankruptcy relief.

Summary:

There’s absolutely no drawback in visiting our law firm for a free case evaluation. We have years of experience, and we can assess your best option with only 1 concern – your best interests. As you can see from our client testimonials, we have represented thousands of satisfied clients. We would be honored to help you accomplish a fresh financial start.

HOW TO STOP A GEORGIA FORECLOSURE by Brian R. Cahn, Consumer Rights Attorney with Perrotta, Cahn & Prieto, P.C.

Why do mortgage lenders love to extend loans in the State of Georgia?  Because Georgia law is unique – a mortgage company can use a “non-judicial” process to quickly foreclose on property in Georgia.  Georgia’s non-judicial foreclosure process is the fastest foreclosure process in the United States.  When you finance a home here, you sign a security deed to the lender plus a waiver of rights.  These documents allow the lender to simply advertise your house for sale for four weeks and then auction it off on the courthouse steps, without ever going inside the courthouse.  The homeowner has the burden of taking the lender to court to prove problems with the lender’s accounting or procedures, but usually missing  payments is enough under most mortgage terms to allow the lender to foreclose.

Fortunately, Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code provides a powerful tool: Debtors can cure the default on a loan through a payment plan. Chapter 13 filings only cost $351 to file.  The best part?….

The mere FILING of a bankruptcy petition AUTOMATICALLY STOPS the foreclosure!

In addition to stopping the foreclosure with the chapter 13, we assist many of our clients with mortgage modifications through the federal government’s Making Home Affordable Program (HAMP).  www.MakingHomeAffordable.gov   Approval of a loan modification will lower the homeowner’s payments.

Complaints against Conseco, Vanderbilt, Bambardier, and Green Tree: What MOBILE HOME Lenders DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW!!

If you have a mobile home, or manufactured home, financed through a bank or private lender, here’s some information the customer service department won’t tell you!!

Here’s how it works:

Now, assume you come to Perrotta, Cahn & Prieto, P.C.  We have an appraiser go to your home and inspect it.  The appraised value of the home, due to depreciation and the economy, is only $14,000.00.  We can modify the loan for you in a chapter 13 plan that only costs $351 to file.  Here’s what your new loan terms look like:

Monthly Principal & Interest
