With the problems caused by mortgage seciritization, as a defendant in a foreclosure case you may have many defenses or countercliams which must be timely raised to be preserve your rights.
- Personal Bankruptcy filings. We can handle all matters related to proceedings in Chapter 7, Chapter 13, and for high debt individuals, Chapter 11. We can assist you in totally eliminating the second mortgage for your principal residence if the balance on your first mortgage exceeds the value of your house.
