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.


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.

For many people, estate planning is an uncomfortable subject, but one that must be discussed in order to provide your family with the security and peace of mind they deserve.

Losing a loved one is almost always difficult, but the period after the person's death can be especially hard for surviving family members. Probate is the process through which a deceased person's estate and will are validated by the court, and it can be a complex, time-consuming undertaking. Our lawyers are equipped to help you and family manage the probate process so that you can focus on moving forward. We also provide guidance for executors, trustees, and others involved with administration of the deceased person's estate.
