The Obama home loan modification plan turned out to be a disaster. Far too often, the banks told people that they needed certain documentation in order to qualify for a home loan modification.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy has helped many McKinney citizens save their homes when they thought all hope was lost. The benefit of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy is that even when you do not have a lump sum of money to become current on your mortgage, Chapter 13 can buy you five years (60 months) to pay back the arrears. Of course, you still have to make your regular monthly payments, but the arrears do not have to be found immediately.
Collin County's courthouse is located in McKinney, Texas. If you are pulled over after having a couple of drinks and the police officer smells alcohol in one of Collin County's cities, like McKinney, Plano, Frisco, Allen, etc. than you will likely be asked to perform a series of tests. The police officer may tell you that he or she is making sure that you are OK to drive, and that may be the case. However, in my experience he is simply trying to build evidence for the State to use at trial to show you were intoxicated.
