Chapter 702 of the Florida Statutes allows a lender to bring
foreclosure proceedings against you if you have defaulted on your
mortgage payments. We can defend you and protect your legal rights
by filing different motions to protect your legal rights and help
you to remain in your home while your financial situation improves,
or you make other financial arrangements.
The prospect of foreclosure leaves many homeowners feeling
frightened, helpless, and alone. At The Carrillo Law Firm, we
understand how devastating going through a foreclosure can be. Your
home, after all, is more than just a residence – it’s the place
where you and your family have built your lives.
An attorney at The Carrillo Law Firm can ease your worries by
answering all of your questions regarding foreclosure. When you work
with our team, we’ll determine an appropriate course of action for
your unique situation.
Our lawyers do not simply provide foreclosure consultations; we work
with our clients throughout the foreclosure process to ensure strong
communication at every step. We also aim to provide financial
solutions that are tailored to our clients’ budgets and wishes.
If you’re already in the midst of the foreclosure process, a lawyer
from our team can assess your financial outlook and negotiate on
your behalf with your lender. By speaking to a lawyer early, before
your first missed mortgage payment, you’ll have a better
understanding of your options. And in some cases, early legal
intervention may even help you keep your home.

paperwork, researching available government aid programs, and
dealing with creditors. Contact The Carrillo Law Firm today to
