Stop foreclosure

Stop Foreclosure

When you fall behind on your mortgage payments, you face the possibility of foreclosure. In Illinois, the foreclosure process is a judicial process in which the lender has to go to court and file a foreclosure lawsuit. You have the opportunity to fight a foreclosure in court. This can stall the process to allow you more time or prevent the foreclosure if you have valid legal defenses.

Single Parent Scholarship

Newland & Newland established the Single Parent Scholarship in 2022. Each semester, single parents and children of single parents may apply for the chance to win this $1,000 award.


If you are struggling to make your mortgage payments, you should know that you are not alone. Missed mortgage payments, however, could lead to collection activities by your lender, including possible foreclosure on your home. At Newland & Newland, LLP, we have the experience and knowledge to help you whether your mortgage is in default or foreclosure proceedings have already started. We can assist with loan modifications, work-out agreements, and other options to prevent or stop a foreclosure. Our team will also take action on your behalf if your lender acted fraudulently or in bad faith.
