Connecticut Foreclosure Defense Options

Posted by Roderick Woods | Mar 01, 2018 | 0 Comments

If you find yourself facing foreclosure on your home in Connecticut, there are defenses that can help save your home for a substantial period of time, or help to dismiss the foreclosure entirely. Consulting with an attorney familiar with foreclosure defense is the most prudent thing to do if you are in the situation of being foreclosed on, but wishing to save your home. Attorney Roderick Woods is an experienced foreclosure defense attorney who will help determine the best course of action for you and your situation. A chapter 7 bankruptcy filing can help you delay the foreclosure of your home, but a chapter 13 can help you keep your home in the end.

Filing for bankruptcy is one of the most powerful tools to use if you wish to stop your foreclosure proceedings. The filing of a notice of bankruptcy will automatically stay, or put a stop to, your foreclosure case until further notice from the bankruptcy court judge. A court order will be issued by the bankruptcy judge staying all proceedings against the debtor during the pendency of the bankruptcy case. Law firms representing banks can be fined for having any document whatsoever filed with the courts during a bankruptcy stay. Attorney Roderick Woods is extremely familiar with the strategy of filing for bankruptcy in order to save your home. We have helped many clients either stall the process in order to work with their lender in restructuring or modifying their loan, or stop the process by agreeing to a payment plan through chapter 13.
