when do you really know it is time to file for bankruptcy?
waiting to see if i get a loan modification, heading into foreclosure and income greatly dropped.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you. I encourage you to ask me for clarification, if you are not clear with my Answer.


When a foreclosure sale date for your property has been set and your loan modification has not been approved, then it is time to file for bankruptcy to stop the sale, to buy yourself so more time to try to save your house through chapter 13 plan.
