Although bankruptcy entitles the filer to an automatic stay, the term of the stay is limited. In the event a debtor’s case is dismissed by the bankruptcy court the automatic stay is lifted and the property is once again subject to foreclosure. In the event an appeal of the denial is filed, the stay may be extended during the term of the appeal but only in the event the debtor can demonstrate a likelihood of success on appeal. If you are facing foreclosure, considering bankruptcy or an appeal in a bankruptcy matter, you should seek experienced legal counsel immediately in order to protect your rights.
