How Can Filing Bankruptcy Help Me Prevent Foreclosure?

The state of California has the second-highest foreclosure rate in the nation — coming in just behind the state of Florida with more than 79,370 homes foreclosed on between April 2012 and 2013. If you are facing a mortgage crisis, it is important to talk to a foreclosure attorney as soon as possible. Under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can save your home from foreclosure by reorganizing your mortgage debt and repaying your delinquent payments over an extended period of time.

Other Ways Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Can Help Protect Your Home:

  • The moment you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the court issues an "automatic stay," which immediately prevents creditors from collecting any debt, even halting foreclosure sales.
  • You may be able to eliminate your second mortgage and treat it as unsecured debt

Filing under Chapter 13 gives those struggling with serious debt a chance to keep their homes and to repay high-priced mortgages strategically. In addition, filing Chapter 13 could allow you to discharge other debts or pay a fraction of some, giving you increased financial flexibility. However, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may not be the right choice for everyone. There are limits to the amount of debt a filer can have.

As of April 1, 2016, eligible filers cannot have unsecured debt exceeding $394,725 or secured debt exceeding $1,184,200.
