Attorney volunteers are needed for free borrower outreach programs around Indiana hosted by the Indiana Foreclosure Prevention
Network Sept. 1.
At these events held at National Guard Armories, borrowers can attend a free workshop, speak with a counselor, and begin preparing to work with their lender. IFPN would like to have attorneys on hand to answer general legal questions, most likely in a small-group setting. The shifts last for 2 ½ hours.
Attorneys don’t need to be experts in foreclosure law and can help by explaining the basics of going to court and related areas of law like bankruptcy or child support. To volunteer, contact the team leader for that location. There will be a PowerPoint presentation posted on the Indiana Supreme Court’s website with more information about the basics of foreclosure law, and a webinar at the end of August for those who would like to learn more about foreclosure law. More information about these outreach events is available at www.877gethope.org.
