For most people, the thought of losing a home to foreclosure is a nightmare. The good news is a foreclosure sale does not have to happen. In many cases, you can stop foreclosure, save your home and obtain debt relief through bankruptcy.

If you have skipped a mortgage payment or are juggling your bills, you should speak with a bankruptcy attorney as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more difficult it can be to resolve your problems.

At the Bankruptcy Clinic, PC, our Illinois bankruptcy attorneys have helped thousands of people keep their homes and get a fresh financial start. We can review your financial situation and explain your options. Contact our bankruptcy law firm to schedule a free consultation.

Bankruptcy Stops Foreclosure Immediately

Filing for Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy stops the foreclosure process immediately. With a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can keep your home, reduce some or all of your unsecured debts, and pay off your remaining secured debts through an affordable payment plan. You can roll your past due mortgage payments, interest and penalties into your payment plan and pay them back over a period of time rather than all at once.

In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can completely eliminate your unsecured debts, which frees you from overwhelming monthly expenses. Most people can keep their home after filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy so long as they remain current on their mortgage payments.

While stopping foreclosure is possible at any time up to the actual foreclosure sale, the sooner you act the better off you will be. If you wait to file a Chapter 13, you are only accumulating mortgage principal, interest payments and creditor’s attorney’s fees you will have to repay over a period of time through your Chapter 13 plan.
