Bankruptcy and Foreclosure
Most people associate bankruptcy with the loss of property. However, bankruptcy
allows countless homeowners each year to obtain temporary protection from
their lenders and even avoid foreclosure altogether.
When you file bankruptcy, the court will issue an order called the automatic
stay. The automatic stay halts
all collection activities, from phone calls to foreclosure. During the entirety of your case, this
order will protect you from creditors, lenders, and debt collectors who
want to seize your property or collect what you owe in any other way.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is typically the most effective way to prevent foreclosure. The automatic
stay lasts for 3-5 years (i.e. the duration of your payment plan), giving
you ample time to catch up on arrears. If you are caught up on payments
by the end of your case, you will effectively rescue your home from foreclosure.
Our attorneys at Edwards & Edwards, P.A. can help you utilize Chapter
13 in the most effective way possible. If your goal is to prevent foreclosure,
we are ready to use our decades of experience to help you find the right
