Bankruptcies in Salt Lake City
Did you know that as of the writing of this article there were 3,035 homes in Salt Lake City that were in some stage of foreclosure including default, bank owned foreclosures and auctions. This means that 3,035 families are in the process of having their lives disrupted dramatically as they struggle to relocate, find a new place to live and handle all of the ongoing stress associated with a foreclosure. Many of those 3,035 families should never have to actually experience the demands a foreclosure makes on a family. In the right circumstances they could use US Bankruptcy law to avoid the foreclosure, keep their home and rebuild their financial future with a new start.
