A: It depends. If the foreclosure is uncontested and there are only a few defendants the process will be a lot quicker than if it's a contested matter. I've seen foreclosure cases resolved in six months and I've seen some take six years. There's no real time frame. I would suggest speaking with a foreclosure attorney in your area, they may be able to give you an estimate based off of the complexities of your case and how quickly the Judges are going through the foreclosure dockets in your area.
