    Strategies to Defend Against Foreclosure in Cleveland, Ohio

    Did you know that filing for bankruptcy may prevent foreclosure on your home? Filing for chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy may be able to stall or terminate a foreclosure completely.

    Filing a chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy may allow you to have the money to:

    • Modify your home loan
    • Make regular mortgage payments

    Generally, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy is recommended over a Chapter 7 for stopping foreclosure. This is because while a Chapter 7 will temporarily stop foreclosure proceedings with the automatic stay for the duration of the bankruptcy, these proceedings will resume once your Chapter 7 bankruptcy is complete and your debts are discharged.

    In comparison, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to include your missed mortgage payments in your repayment plan. This effectively allows you to repay your mortgage debt over the three to five year Chapter 13 payment plan period, and can save your home from foreclosure.
