Stopping Foreclosure With Chapter 7

For those who are in deep financial debt, Chapter 7 bankruptcy may be the best option for stopping foreclosure. Under Chapter 7, all pending actions immediately cease, creating the opportunity for serious financial review. A debtor can discharge their unsecured debts (credit cards, personal loans, bills) and decide whether that will free up enough cash flow to make current mortgage payments and cure the outstanding mortgage. However, they can also consider selling the home or letting it go through foreclosure while making the necessary financial arrangements.

Stopping Foreclosure With Chapter 13

For those clients who are not eligible for Chapter 7, Chapter 13 bankruptcy offers both debt relief and foreclosure prevention. Our bankruptcy attorneys will help you reorganize your debts so that you can cure the default on your mortgage and save your family home.

Do Not Trust Mortgage Negotiation Companies

Losing the home is often the biggest worry of anyone with a high amount of debt. As a result, it is very tempting to trust those who promise to prevent foreclosure. If you have been contacted by a loan negotiation company, it is advisable not to give them money. Instead, seek dedicated legal assistance. An experienced and qualified attorney can help you stop foreclosure and achieve financial relief.
