Fighting Foreclosure Through Bankruptcy

One of the most effective ways to halt foreclosure in Chicago is to initiate the bankruptcy process. As soon as you have filled out all of the necessary paperwork and submitted your petition to the court, they will move quickly to order an automatic stay. This will essentially act as a "cease and desist" order for any creditors that have attempted to collect on overdue debt, as they will be strictly prohibited from continuing their efforts until the bankruptcy process has been concluded.

The automatic stay is applicable to all impending foreclosures, so you would be able to stay in your home for the time being. It does not necessarily mean that their efforts will not be continued thereafter, however, as an automatic stay will typically only give you a few months to develop a plan and get your finances in order.

Foreclosure During Chapter 13

If you are looking to completely stop the foreclosure process, consider filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. This is a more gradual way to alleviate debt, as it would allow you to reorganize your finances and develop a manageable payment plan that would span over a period of 3-5 years.

If you have at least enough income to meet your current mortgage payments – regardless of how far behind you have fallen – while you repay your debt under the new structure, you should be able to avoid foreclosure and keep your home when the process has finally been concluded.

Filing for Chapter 7 will only delay the foreclosure process – as the debtor would only be afforded a few months to develop a plan under the protection of an automatic stay.
