Preventing Foreclosure with a Bankruptcy Filing

Foreclosure is a process that usually begins when homeowners have fallen significantly behind on their mortgage payments. In some cases, it is possible to stall or even prevent foreclosure by filing for bankruptcy. When you file for bankruptcy, the bankruptcy court will issue an automatic stay that requires creditors to stop trying to collect debts, including ceasing foreclosure activities. Your attorney can then propose an affordable 3-5 year plan to pay back the mortgage arrears over time with no interest accruing. In addition we can address your vehicles and other unsecured debts to get you one affordable payment on a path to be current and debt free!

Chapter 7 vs. Chapter 13 Effects on Foreclosure

Unfortunately due to income, death of a family member or illness you may not be able to propose a feasible Chapter 13 to save your home from foreclosure. While a Chapter 7 wont ultimately prevent the foreclosure, it will buy you badly needed time and, more importantly, it will ultimately discharge your personal liability on the mortgage. This will prohibit a future deficiency lawsuit against you in the future and allow you to rebuild your life and credit rating.

The likelier bankruptcy process for preventing a foreclosure if you are eligible is Chapter 13 because it affords more options. If you make timely payments under your Chapter 13 debt repayment plan, you can avoid foreclosure. In particular, Chapter 13 can help you keep your home by restructuring your debts over a period of 3-5 years. You might be able to avoid foreclosure and remain in your home in this case because you can repay delinquent mortgage payments through the plan. At the end of the day, even if you cannot complete your plan, filing for Chapter 13 will give you at least several months before a foreclosure can be completed.
