How does the automatic stay affect foreclosure?

For many individuals threatened with foreclosure, bankruptcy is the natural course of action. This is because the automatic stay immediately halts the foreclosure process and allows debtors to find a way to potentially save their home. In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, it is possible to pay off arrearages in your mortgage over a three-to-five-year period.

Because creditors and lenders do have the ability to proceed with foreclosure actions after a certain length of time, it is important that you establish a plan to save your home quickly. Our firm can review your case and point you toward the most viable solution. We are committed to helping you avoid foreclosure.
