How Does Bankruptcy Stop Foreclosure?

As soon as you file for bankruptcy, an automatic stay goes into place. This sends your creditors the message that they must stop all actions to collect on your debts, including ending harassing phone calls and putting a stop to foreclosure proceedings. Both Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 filings can stop foreclosure.

Of course, our Yuma foreclosure defense lawyer understands that you do not simply want to prevent this action against your home. You also want to make certain that you will be able to keep your house well into the future. As long as your payments are current, or if you are able to catch up by the time of your filing, you have a very good chance of keeping your house out of foreclosure.

Chapter 13 & Foreclosure

Chapter 13 bankruptcy opens the door to an additional legal option that can help you catch up on your payments. This option is the second mortgage scrape-off. If your home is currently worth less than the amount of the first mortgage, you may be able to eliminate a second mortgage, if you have one. This may eliminate the weight of an additional financial burden and help you get out of debt sooner.

Foreclosure Is a Time-Sensitive Matter

All too often, people “put off” filing bankruptcy. This is understandable as filing bankruptcy is a major decision. However, it may also be an inevitable one, as few other debt-relief options are as reliable. We encourage you to take action as soon as possible so that no opportunities are missed.

In terms of stopping foreclosure, as long as you take action before the trustee sale date, you still have a chance. We encourage you to get in touch with our Yuma bankruptcy attorney as early as possible so that you can get the full benefit of our experienced representation.
