If you are behind on your mortgage payments, chances are the “foreclosure mill” (a large law firm churning out foreclosures at a high rate) has started processing your case for litigation. These firms will not negotiate with you once they have filed the foreclosure action. You will only have twenty days to respond to a foreclosure complaint before the law firm handling the case will attempt to get a default judgment against you. It is important that you have a Florida Foreclosure Attorney respond to the complaint within that time period. This will significantly improve your chances at keeping your home or at least buying you time to consider other options.
A Florida Foreclosure Attorney can help protect your rights and keep you in your home while we fight the foreclosure. Generally the lender will not accept payments once this process has been initiated. However, you are still entitled to stay in your home during the lawsuit. This means that you will be able to stay in the house without making mortgage payments until the outcome of your case is determined by a judge or settled outside of court.
If you have been served with a foreclosure complaint or are behind on your mortgage payments, you need to speak with a Florida Foreclosure Attorney about your case. We can discuss your options with you and develop a course of actions that protects your financial and personal interests. In some cases you may be able to use bankruptcy to keep you in your house as well. A Florida Bankruptcy Attorney can explain to you how this valuable remedy may or may not apply in your particular case. Many of the same issues that are involved in Florida Foreclosure Defense are also involved in Florida Bankruptcy Cases.
