Twenty Days of Defense

The 20-day clock begins when the lender files a lawsuit of foreclosure against the homeowner.  Once this lawsuit has been filed, the homeowner has twenty days to file a response with the courts.  If a response is not filed, the foreclosure is likely to continue as planned.  While not automatically put into default at this point, the lender may move forward with proceedings at his or her leisure.

Twenty days can pass by very quickly, especially when you are having financial problems.  It is therefore incredibly important to respond to a foreclosure complaint and summons as quickly and as vigorously as possible.  An experienced and compassionate lawyer may be the best way to defend your home and your financial future.
