Q How Can Bankruptcy Stop Foreclosure?
Filing for bankruptcy can often stop the foreclosure of your home. With Chapter 13 bankruptcy, many people are able to save their homes — our bankruptcy attorneys in Kansas City have used Chapter 13 to help thousands of people stop foreclosures.
Even Chapter 7 can help delay a foreclosure. Once you file for bankruptcy, the judge orders your creditors to stop all collection activities — including the harassing phone calls — immediately. So if your home is scheduled for foreclosure, that process will legally be postponed while the bankruptcy is pending, which could take a few months.
If you need to keep your home, the best way to do it is often through a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which allows you to pay off the late payments in a payment plan determined by the court. The time period can be anywhere between three and five years. Also, Chapter 13 bankruptcy could eliminate payments on your second or third mortgage.
