A: You need to have an in person consultation with an experienced mortgage foreclosure defense and bankruptcy attorney. The lenders all have attorneys, and the only way that your case will be taken seriously by them is by retaining an experienced mortgage foreclosure defense attorney. The defenses to mortgage foreclosure in IL are more limited than in many other states. There are numerous options that are available to you, but only a complete review of all documents by an attorney will enable you to receive the correct advice.
