Is It Possible to Save Your House From Foreclose?

You can stop a sheriff sale. However, if the sale has already been scheduled, you want to talk to an experienced lawyer as soon as possible so you do everything possible to stop the sale and save your home.

Mortgage companies usually begin the foreclosure process when you have been 90 to 120 days late with your payments. At this point, they file a lawsuit, which is followed quickly by a judgment. The last step in the process is the sheriff's sale. There are generally six months between the time the lawsuit is filed and the time of the sheriff's sale.

The threat of foreclosure is daunting, and many people ignore the mail and calls for a while in order to buy time. Unfortunately, these cases move quickly, and the longer you avoid the threat of foreclosure, the more serious it becomes. We understand that you are overwhelmed, but we can step in at any point in the process, take action and help you keep your home.

In addition to stopping foreclosure and stopping a sheriff sale, bankruptcy can also provide you with immediate relief in other ways:

  • Creditor harassment prevention
  • Wage garnishment prevention
