New York Uncontested Divorce

Uncontested Divorce

In the past few months we have received a lot of phone calls from people who either attempted to file their own uncontested divorce or hired the cheapest attorney they could find to file their uncontested divorce for them.  Unfortunately, these folks have found out the hard way, that mistakes in the paperwork or the filings of these uncontested types of divorce can lead to serious delays and stress.  Although an uncontested divorce is not as technically challenging as a contested divorce may be, it should still be taken seriously.  An uncontested divorce controls the manner in which a marriage is dissolved.  Issues of child custody, child support, maintenance, and property distribution are all at stake when these divorce papers are prepared and filed.  It is very important that you find a competent professional to prepare and file your divorce.  Saving several months time and a lot of money that it takes to fix mistakes in the divorce process is well worth the slightly higher cost that you may pay.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the Law Firm of Vaughn, Weber & Prakope, PLLC at (516) 858-2620!

More Loan Modifications?

On February 10, 2011, in Foreclosure, by Robbie L. Vaughn, Esq.

This year, much to our delight, several of our foreclosure defense clients have received acceptable loan modification offers from their respective lenders. What’s most pleasing is that these clients had been rejected, on several occasions for some,  or they were previously offered an unacceptable, unaffordable loan modification.

Last year, we found loan modifications hard to come by. In one case, we found serious problems with a major lender’s foreclosure paperwork. We requested a loan modification or dismissal of the foreclosure action with prejudice. However, rather than give our client a loan modification, the lender chose to discontinue their foreclosure action against him. Not a bad result at all, but our client really wanted a loan modification.  As of today, the lender has not restarted the foreclosure action and a loan modification is being considered.

Major Banks Halting Foreclosures in NY?

On October 2, 2010, in Foreclosure, by Robbie L. Vaughn, Esq.

Are foreclosures being halted in NY?

Foreclosure defense is a large part of our law practice. We are currently defending foreclosures brought by GMAC, Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo etc.  For the most part, we have not seen much evidence of these lenders suspending current foreclosure actions. They are still opposing our motions, replying to our answers, and having counsel attend the Mandatory Foreclosure Settlement Conferences on their behalf.

However, we have had several recent loan modification offers, requests for adjournments, and at least one major lender is attempting to discontinue their foreclosure action against one our clients. We were able to achieve the foregoing results by raising and vigorously litigating the “faulty/fraudulent paperwork” that is a part of many foreclosure actions.

So, we know what the headlines say, but we have YET to receive any calls from any lenders or their attorneys saying “Hey, we are discontinuing all of our foreclosures in NY.” We look forward to that day, but until then, we will keep raising the issues and fighting for our clients.
