Signing a bankruptcy petition can bring temporary relief from a foreclosure action. A bankruptcy petition is the last option for borrowers who are unable to manage their debts. There are two forms of bankruptcy for individuals, Chapter 7 bankruptcy which in due course cancels out most debts, including mortgages, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy which allows the borrower to rearrange payment of outstanding debts, which can be partially canceled.
Chapter 7 and 13 bankruptcies are essentially different in the way they handle mortgage debt and possession of your home. It is very important that you provide all financial obligations and past debt information to your attorney because debt obligations overlooked or missed may come back to haunt you in years to come. Our Bankruptcy Lawyers can help you make the right legal decisions; they will provide effective solutions for your specific bankruptcy needs.
