How long it will take for you to be evicted depends on what stage the foreclosure process is in.
What stage is the foreclosure process in?
Have you already received a Notice of Default? Has the bank already filed a foreclosure proceeding in court? Has the bank already gotten a judgment of foreclosure, etc.?
If you have stopped paying the mortgage, and if you have not yet received a Notice of Default, you can expect it to take one to two years or longer before you are evicted.
If you do continue to pay the mortgage, even though you are filing a Bankruptcy, you cannot be evicted.
