Question by mr.t’smom: Does filing bankruptcy delay a foreclosure?
How does this work? We are currently three months late. We are filing bankruptcy very soon. How long until we will have to get out of our home?

The motion either you or your bankruptcy attorney will stop the foreclosure process. Unfortunately it’ll start back up again if you don’t try to catch up with your payments. Eighty percent of the bankruptcies filed to stop foreclosure fail because people don’t realize they still have to pay off your debts. PLEASE don’t file for bankruptcy. It’ll kill your credit, especially if you go back into foreclosure.

If you want to stay in your house file a loss mitigator to help you out with a loan-modification. ALL BANKS do this.

If you’re willing to walk away, whether you have equity or not, instead of answering those “We buy houses” letters try googling “sell home fast” or “stop foreclosure”and type in the city where you live. The investors who have a website most likely know what they are doing.

Good luck.

    Marshall E. Rosenbach is the leading expert in loan modifications. Very often, the consumer is left in a situation that is very unfavorable financially. This might be from simple oversight when he or she took out the mortgage, or even because of outright fraud on the part of the mortgage broker. Our law office specializes in analyzing your loan with a fine tooth comb, which is known as a forensic audit.
    Finding a loan modifications expert is the absolute key to your 2009 financial “to do” list and we know that quite well! 
    We have the most sophisticated techniques to analyze every single aspect of your loan. We make sure it follows the letter of the law in its disclosures to you the consumer, and we also make sure it follows what the law allows in its interest and other terms. If our extremely detailed audit uncovers any errors or variations of the law, to the smallest degree, we present this to the lender and use every legal principle at our disposal to effect a change in your favor. Many loans, when analyzed in such detail that we are able to provide, reveal such anomalies, and the mortgage company listens when presented by an expert attorney. We talk their language, on your behalf. We use the violations as leverage to negotiate a better deal for you.
    In the fewer percentage of cases where our audit turns up no errors, we will still approach the lender on your behalf, and Marshall Rosenbach himself will do so. Marshall is an expert who is very familiar with federal and state laws that protect homeowners during bot the loan origination and loan modification process. You will be represented by an actual attorney, not an office clerk as in most loan modification companies. Whether we find errors in your loan audit or not, our success rate is spectacularly high in getting your payments reduced to what you can live with, keeping you in your home, and resulting in protecting your credit.
