Oregon Bankruptcy Law Blogs


Bankruptcy law is federal law so you want to look not only at Oregon attorney, law firm, and legal blogs, but also at federal bankruptcy online resources. (There are print bankruptcy legal resources but this blog post focuses on the online “current awareness” blogs only, or primarily.)

Federal Court: U.S. Bankruptcy Court, District of Oregon

I list below a few Oregon bankruptcy attorney blogs, selected from the many excellent Oregon attorney websites, many of which have a lot of information but are not strictly speaking “blogs.” (And, please see the Disclaimer, below.)

The blogs I list below are active current-awareness blogs written as much, if not more, for the layperson as for their lawyer colleagues.

Please let me know of others, keeping in mind that to be added to the list the law firm’s blog postings must be current, newsworthy and/or educational, and the blog should be relatively active, that is, the blogging attorney posts to the bankruptcy blog at least a couple of times a month.

1) Lawyer Ben (Oregon attorney Ben Knaupp) blogs about foreclosure, bankruptcy, and related consumer debt issues.

2) Oregon Bankruptcy Blog (Oregon attorney Tom McAvity): blogs about all things bankruptcy, including educational posts and links to articles.

3) Portland Bankruptcy Law Group (Oregon attorneys Christopher Kane and Adam Weiner): blog about foreclosures and bankruptcy law.

    It seems that every time you turn around, the bankruptcy laws are changing. The latest change in the laws governing bankruptcy has caused some confusion for people. The law that changed the way people file for bankruptcy happened back in 2005. The new bankruptcy law now has stricter rules for people wanting to file bankruptcy. People who would normally file a chapter 7 are now finding that they will have to file a chapter 13 bankruptcy.

  2. My question is:

    1. My payments on my house are current and never late can I keep it?

    2. All furniture, tv's and household items are not mine they belong to my mother who has graciously financed all of this to us is hers. She applied for the credit and all of it is paid by us monthly some of it even was moved over to her consolidation credit card, which is also paid by us. All debts owed to my mom under her name I have always paid for religiously but still are in her name, can we keep that stuff?

    3. My car is current on payments and never late can I keep it?

    The only stuff that actually belongs to us that we pay for is a house and car. Clothing is all paid for and not of any real value other than we need clothes.
    How do I refinance my home if I am in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy?
    I pay my bills, but just want my mortgage reduced. It would really help. How and who do I contact? My mortgage company won't talk to us.
