You have more options than bankruptcy when sued by Bank of America

You may be able to file bankruptcy if Bank of America files a lawsuit against you. It is not the only option. You can:

  • Settle with Bank of America Often creditors will agree to a settlement often with a reasonable payment plan. The amount of the payment plan is going to depend upon your demonstrating hardships such as medical, job loss, continued under-employment, foreclosures, repossessions etc. The creditor may ask for a minimum monthly payment of $100 for lesser debt amounts. Be careful when settling a lawsuit with Bank of America because by calling to settle does not mean they will stop the lawsuit process. Some clients have found that they tried to negotiate a settlement but a judgment was taken against them anyways. While you can contact Bank of America on your own, you may find having an experienced negotiator on your side will make it easier to deal with Bank of America.  Get a Quote

  • File a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Another option is to file a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. A Chapter 13 Dallas Bankruptcy is where if you make too much money and do not qualify for a Chapter 7  you will have to enter into a 5-year repayment plan with your creditors, like Bank of America. You will make one payment to the bankruptcy trustee and they will pay the creditors for you. To learn more about this option, Call us at (214) 499-9550 or Make an Appointment
  • Do Nothing You can always do nothing. If you do not respond to the lawsuit then Bank of America may take a judgment against you. They can go after your bank accounts and any unprotected assets you have. Settlement percentages usually increase the more collection attempts they have to make to get paid.
