Using Bankruptcy as a form of Foreclosure Defense:
Bankruptcy court is also an option and that takes place in a Federal non-district Court.
There has been an increase in the amount of bankruptcy courts who have gone against the grain and ruled against banks, and many homeowners have been able to save their homes this way.
Generally speaking though, bankruptcy is used as more of a "last resort" if all circuit court and Federal District Court defense options have been exhausted. It can even be filed as little as 24 hours before the sale.
An experienced bankruptcy attorney should be acquired in order to ensure the bankruptcy schedules are prepared properly. It is very important to demonstrate that the mortgage loan is both disputed and unsecured in order to adequately challenge the debt.
You need to to make sure your bankruptcy attorney realizes that you wish to use this approach so they can mark the papers accordingly in order to reduce the amount of work the bankruptcy court will need to accommodate.
Another thing to consider when using bankruptcy as an alternative to foreclosure is the fact that bankruptcy cases tend to move through the courts fairly quickly as opposed to other courts. As a result, you may have to move quickly in order to secure the funds for your bankruptcy attorney to proceed with your defense.
