How do I stop foreclosure?
Are you looking to stop a foreclosure? Bankruptcy can stop a foreclosure immediately. After you file for bankruptcy, you can tell your lender or the auction company that you have filed for bankruptcy and they are required by law to cease all actions to foreclose on your home. If you want to stop a foreclosure action by a bank that has already happened, you need to act very fast and get an attorney.
