Stopping Foreclosure

The best thing about filing for bankruptcy protection is that it stops all collection and foreclosure actions in their tracks. There is more than one way to avoid home foreclosure. Depending on your situation, a Chapter 13 or even Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing can save your home. If you are behind in your mortgage payments or have received a foreclosure notice, contact a Maine stop foreclosure attorney.

In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, a payment plan is arranged whereby you make regular payments over a period of three or five years. Debtors receive much of what they are owed, but if you have enough money to make mortgage payments according to the plan, you will keep your home.

Other solutions to your debt problems include possible mortgage modification, short sale and other options. Contact me to learn what options could work for you.
