Chapter 13 filingImagine this scenario: you receive a foreclosure notice from your lender in the mail. You immediately think you are going to lose your home. You immediately consider all your options.

At some point, sooner rather than later, you need to learn more about filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. This may be the best way to stop foreclosure, at least for the time being, in an attempt to get back on track.

Your lender has no choice but to stop with the foreclosure process. With an automatic stay in place, your mortgage lender, among other creditors, are prohibited from taking part in any collection activity without permission from the court.

For you, the homeowner, this means one thing: you are buying a little bit of time. This may be just what you need to save your home from foreclosure.

Do you have the money to catch up on back payments? Do you need to contact your mortgage lender to discuss a modification? Are you better off waiting for the Chapter 13 process to complete, and then pay off your missed payments through a repayment plan?

Nobody wants to consider the idea that they could lose their home to foreclosure. Unfortunately, this is reality for many people in the United States every year.
