Bankruptcy Can Stop Foreclosure

Nothing sends a chill down the spine like a foreclosure notice. But you have options, and I can discuss those with you.

At the Law Office of Paul R. Idlas, I help people who are facing home foreclosure in Lake County and throughout surrounding Illinois communities. Contact my office in Grayslake to find out more about debt relief options that stop foreclosure, such as:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy can stop a sheriff's sale of your property. Chapter 7 also wipes out unsecured debt.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to create a new plan for paying back what you owe — and it stops foreclosure permanently, provided you maintain your three- to five-year payment schedule.
  • Short sales and other tactics are creative ways to take charge of the foreclosure action. Some of these strategies may not be in your best interests. It is important to discuss them with an experienced attorney before making any significant decisions.

Filing for bankruptcy triggers the automatic stay, a legal injunction that stops all debt collection actions, including home foreclosure. If you file the day before a sheriff's sale, the sale will not go forward. With more than 30 years of bankruptcy experience, I know how to make the law work for you.
