Stages of Foreclosure
This is based on a typical judicial mortgage foreclosure of residential real estate, ie: a one or two family house in the State of New York. Even if you are in a judicial mortgage foreclosure of a one or two family house in the State of New York, your case may not be typical.
Bankruptcy cases in the Southern, Eastern and Northern Districts of New York are now filed ELECTRONICALLY. Special passwords and software is required for this. Attorneys are issued passwords by the courts. One effect of this is that Bankruptcy cases can be filed at night, on weekends and on holidays.
Special Types of Foreclosure
Either the property is in someone else's name, and the bank refuses to speak to you or it is in your name and someone else's (like your angry uncooperative ex) and the bank will speak to you but then requires the cooperation of your uncooperative ex to actually do a modification.
