Chapter 13 Stops Foreclosure Actions and Saves Homes

Foreclosures are state court legal actions brought by banks and factory foreclosure legal offices for the repossession of your home. Homeowners who do not pay up their bank payments in full suffer the loss of their home and the threat of a deficiency judgment which is a bill for the amount of money not recovered by the bank through the foreclosure process.

Chapter 13 is the leading method for homeowners to stop the state court foreclosure and save their home through a plan for repayment. Chapter 13 puts an automatic stay on the foreclosure action by removing it from the lower state court and placing it in the higher jurisdiction of the federal court immediately upon the Chapter 13 filing. The Chapter 13 court essentially "trumps" the state court action and takes jurisdiction over the bank's effort to take your home while providing a three-to-five year time period to fix any defaulted mortgage.

Chapter 13 Prioritization of Debt Elimination and Repayment

All financial problems involve limited resources and overwhelming debt obligations. When faced with financial problems, most people try to pay all creditors, doing their best to "make everyone happy." This is not the proper approach, since no financial problem can be solved by making everyone happy. The key to any reorganization is the prioritization of limited resources toward the most important obligation in combination with debt relief or elimination of the least important priorities like credit card debt and old unsecured obligations of low priority.


Most individuals and families face a myriad of debt pressures on their monthly budget that can often get overwhelming from a number of different sides. Chapter 13 allows for the proper utilization of limited family income to be used for priority debts and not for less important financial obligations in accordance with the needs of your budget and your financial goals.

By legally refocusing income to your most important needs like daily costs and housing, other lower priority payments like old bills, credit cards, collections and even lawsuits or second mortgages are reduced or even eliminated or discharged. Eliminating lower forms of debt in favor of higher priority obligations is essential element of all financial recoveries and its strongest measures appear under Chapter 13 prioritization rules.


Understanding all the nuances of Chapter 13 and the knowledge to craft the best possible plans of reorganization requires the most experienced legal counsel possible.
