Bankruptcy is one of the most effective tools for preventing foreclosure. From the automatic stay to the ability to cure mortgage arrears, bankruptcy can help save homes. But the power of bankruptcy goes beyond these two critical provisions. Any advocate working to preserve homeownership needs to know what bankruptcy can and cannot do for clients in financial distress. We will highlight the various ways in which bankruptcy can help clients keep their homes.

Presenters: Sarah Bolling Mancini and Tara Twomey, National Consumer Law Center
