We Can Help You Stop Bank Foreclosure Proceedings Through Bankruptcy
By filing bankruptcy, you put an immediate stop to any current foreclosure proceedings or bank sales. This filing also prevents a bank from starting a foreclosure proceeding against you.
It is important to note that filing bankruptcy only stops foreclosure proceedings for a period of time. The next steps of the process really depend upon your home and your home ownership goals:
- If your house has negative or little equity, and assuming you want to keep your house, foreclosure is completely stopped by filing bankruptcy — as long as your home is properly exempted in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or your delinquent mortgage is consolidated into your Chapter 13 repayment plan. In either scenario, you must also be capable of maintaining your regular mortgage payment.
- If you do not want to keep your house, you can give your house back to your bank on a better timeline and discharge any liability for the mortgage, second mortgage, liens, judgments or other securities against the property.
Our bankruptcy attorney will sit with you and discuss your bankruptcy options and your options for how to handle your foreclosure. From Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy to short sales, we are here to guide you through this challenging time and resolve your financial concerns.
