Financial matters are both complex and critical. You deserve an attorney by your side who can help you determine what’s fair, legal, and appropriate in any financial situation, such as bankruptcy, real estate purchases, foreclosures, loans, taxes, and social security or disability matters.
Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
All Texas Legal plans have a three-month waiting period from the time your plan is active before you can use your bankruptcy benefit. If your bankruptcy is being filed jointly for you and a spouse, both spouses must be on your Texas Legal plan in order for the issue to be covered.
Residential Real Estate Purchases
Although many residential real estate purchases do not require an attorney’s help, you can always ask a Texas Legal attorney to review any documents for inconsistencies or potential problems, especially if you’re purchasing your first home. In addition, there are some more complex situations where a lawyer’s help can be useful in a real estate purchase, such as when there’s a problem with the title, a conflict between buyer and seller, a for-sale-by-owner purchase, a contract-for-deed (commonly called rent-to-own) purchase or when buying a foreclosed property. In all of these situations, an attorney can help guide you through the process, ensuring your success and satisfaction.
If no suit has been filed in your foreclosure case, a Texas Legal attorney can help you with reviewing and preparing the necessary documents. If a lender has filed suit against you, you can get an attorney to represent you in court under our defense of civil action benefit. If you are being sued in civil court, your Texas Legal plan covers an attorney to assist you with your defense.
