Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Options

If you are behind on your mortgage payments, you may be able to keep your home through Chapter 13 bankruptcy . Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be able to prevent foreclosure on your home by bringing your mortgage payments up to date. In certain circumstances, a second mortgage or home equity line of credit may be completely eliminated through bankruptcy.

When you file for bankruptcy, the court will order mediation with your bank to prevent foreclosure. This may allow you to mediate your mortgage problems with your lender. We can then work with the bank to modify your mortgage to make payments more manageable for you in the future.
