Foreclosure Attorney in Northbrook

Taking Legal Action to Stop Foreclosure on the North Shore

Financial circumstances that are difficult to manage can quickly lead to debt piling up. In the worst situations, you could face foreclosure. If you have not been able to make your mortgage payments for an extended period of time and have an outstanding balance, the lender may start the foreclosure process to reclaim your property. Depending on the circumstances of your debt and property, the foreclosure process can take as little as 30 days from the time you receive an initial notice.

If selling the property does not satisfy your debt, the lender may still come after you for more money. At Bach Law Offices, we are dedicated to providing you with foreclosure defense to help you keep your home or property. Our Northbrook foreclosure lawyers have over 40 years of combined experience taking action to prevent foreclosure.

Using Bankruptcy to Prevent Foreclosure

There are many steps you can take against foreclosure, including bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is an effective way to defend against foreclosure, because it puts in effect the automatic stay as soon as you have filed your petition with your local bankruptcy court.

Filing for bankruptcy works in the following ways to prevent foreclosure:

  • Once you file, an automatic stay is issued
  • Automatic stay prevents all collection activities
  • Foreclosure proceedings will stop while the bankruptcy is pending
  • Once your bankruptcy is approved, you can work out a payment plan
  • After the payment plan is established, you can catch up on payments
