New Proof of Claim and Mortgage Attachment: The Other Form Changes

We all know that all of the bankruptcy filing forms were revised as of December 1, 2015.  But did you know that major changes were also made to the Proof of Claim form (Form 410) and the Mortgage Proof of Claim Attachment form (Form 410A), with the same effective on Dec. 1, 2015? Learn from two bankruptcy and consumer law experts how these form changes can help you in representing clients.  This webinar will help you to understand the new forms and what to look for in figuring out whether the creditor’s claim is accurate and whether the servicer may have misapplied payments or made other servicing errors before the bankruptcy was filed.
