Attorneys needed for foreclosure events

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

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.

  1. My daughters' kids was removed from the home in March 2015, she has been in total compliance with the requirements of cps, she is going to court on the 4th of August. Cps had called the first team meeting last Monday to inform her that she was not in compliance, by not attending home based therapy, which is done normally with the children in the home, and now they are recommending her to have a psych evaluation, and they are also recommending that the children not be returned to the home. This is all bull hockey. In this so called team meeting which I did attend for the best interest of my child and grandbabies, I learned that no matter how much she does that cps is not trying to return the children and the concerns my daughter has is not important to cps, they only told her that she is to do as they say and not to resist or her rights will be terminated. I cant not believe the way Cps treats people knowing if they threaten you with loosing your kids you will do anything to get them back. My daughter is drug free she has never put her hands on any of her children she does not scream at her babies at all, but she is only allowed to see her kids 6 hours a week and someone has to supervise. Lets all tske a stand against the child protection services. THEY CAN NO LONGER TAKE CHILDREN FROM THERE PARENTS.

  2. Planned Parenthood has the government so trained . . .

  3. In a related story, an undercover video team released this footage of the government's search of the Planned Parenthood facilities. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXVN7QJ8m88

  4. Here is an excellent movie for those wanting some historical context, as well as encouragement to stand against dominant political forces and knaves who carry the staves of governance to enforce said dominance: http://www.copperheadthemovie.com/

  5. Not enough copperheads here to care anymore, is my guess. Otherwise, a totally pointless gesture. ... Oh wait: was this done because somebody want to avoid bad press - or was it that some weak kneed officials cravenly fear "protest" violence by "urban youths.."
