People struggling with mortgage payments and other debt have several options to help stop foreclosures and other debt-collection actions. By filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, for example, an automatic stay is instated, stopping any foreclosure proceedings and blocking creditors’ attempts to collect money. An experienced bankruptcy attorney can advise people as to which option is best for their particular circumstances.

Nationwide, foreclosure filings have declined for 10 months in a row. James Saccacio, CEO of RealtyTrac, was quoted by the Leader-Telegram as saying the decrease in foreclosure filings was originally started by the “robo-signing controversy” that arose in October 2010, temporarily halting foreclosure proceedings. Now, though, Saccacio reports that the decline may be attributed to foreclosure-prevention programs at both the state and national level, including loan modification and mortgage-payment assistance programs.
