What Options Do I Have Other Than Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy has some serious long-term consequences. It can put your finances under scrutiny in court for years. It leaves scars on your credit rating.

Depending on the type of bankruptcy you file, you could keep your house but have to pay even more for it.

Once you declare bankruptcy, you lose a lot of other options for getting out of your foreclosure dilemma.

First, you should see if there are other ways to resolve your mortgage situation. Those could include:

Don’t trust any law firm that says they can guarantee they’ll save you from bankruptcy or that they’ll definitely save your home.

Instead, you can get the attorneys at HNB to look at your situation and give you an honest assessment of your choices. Our initial case review is free.

What Happens When I Declare Bankruptcy?

If you conclude bankruptcy is the way to resolve your mortgage foreclosure problem, you could take different paths:

  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: You can delay your home foreclosure, but not stop it.
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: You can keep your house, but you have to pay even more to continue living there.

If your house sells in a foreclosure for less than what you owe on it, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy can help you avoid paying for the gap in funds, called a deficiency.

But you can also avoid paying for a loan deficiency with some of the nonbankruptcy options for resolving your foreclosure.

Foreclosure and bankruptcy are intimidating, complicated processes.

It’s important to know you don’t have to go through this alone. An experienced foreclosure defense attorney can guide you through all the confusing laws and procedures that apply to your situation. If needed, an HNB lawyer can refer you to a highly qualified bankruptcy attorney.
