Foreclosure Defense vs. Bankruptcy

We cannot tell you whether or not foreclosure defense or bankruptcy is better for you until we gain a full understanding of your situation. However, here is a general overview of some of the advantages offered by both options:

Foreclosure Defense

  • Can spare you from the adverse effects bankruptcy will have on your credit rating.
  • Can spare you from unscrupulous mortgage lenders and servicers and hold them accountable for their actions.
  • An experienced attorney can help you negotiate more favorable terms with your mortgage lender


  • Wipes out debt (Chapter 7) or restructures it into a manageable payment plan (Chapter 13).
  • Protects you from creditor actions like harassment and wage garnishment.
  • Can help you avoid the tax consequences associated with some foreclosure defense options.
