How can I stop foreclosure in Texas?

David Shuster: 

By filing a bankruptcy, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you get the automatic stay. The second you file, you get a case number, and that's sent over to the creditor, and the foreclosure sale is stopped. It's the quickest and best way to stop a foreclosure, short of being able to pay back all of the past due amounts that you owe, and of course making sure that the bank receives the amount that you're past due and actually cancels the sale. And so if you do get a foreclosure notice, typically 21 days for non-judicial foreclosures, and so get with an attorney and file a Chapter 13 if that makes the most sense for you.
