Stop Foreclosure and Save Your Home
Stopping foreclosure through bankruptcy is a time sensitive matter. As long as your bankruptcy petition is filed before the date of the foreclosure sale, bankruptcy will stop the sale from taking place. If you do not file by that date, there is nothing you can do to save your home. Our attorneys understand the urgency of these matters and routinely file emergency bankruptcy petitions.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a good option for people who are behind on mortgage payments and just need time to catch up. Chapter 13 stops debt collection activities like foreclosure, while giving the debtor between three and five years to catch up on past-due debts.
