How long will it take?
Initially, you will have to file a response within twenty days of the date that you receive the lawsuit for mortgage foreclosure. Please make sure that you have taken the steps to protect your rights in that time period. Once your rights are protected, the process may take substantial time. This substantial time will give you time to consider all possible options, which may include a loan modification, a short sale or bankruptcy to save your house.
