While fewer Michigan residents are facing foreclosure now compared to years past, it is still an issue for some. If you are on the brink of losing your home, you may wonder what foreclosure defense options are available to you. This is where a bankruptcy law attorney may be able to help.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is one of the most commonly used foreclosure defense options. The minute you submit your bankruptcy filing, foreclosure proceedings — unless they are very near completion — have to stop until your bankruptcy case is closed. By going the bankruptcy route, you may be able to work out a new payment plan with your mortgage lender or adjust the amount you need to pay monthly on other debt obligations in order to free funds so that you can make more mortgage payment on time and in full.

There are a number of foreclosure defense options out there. It is impossible to know which is best for you until legal counsel has the ability to review the finer details of your situation.
