Today is Monday, December 7, you have seventeen shopping days left until Christmas. If you do not heed the deadline, time can work against you. The same is true in home foreclosure.
If you have received a Foreclosure Summons, you only have 20 calendar days to respond, and it needs to be answered properly. Often a Motion for Enlargement of Time can give you the chance to review your case with a foreclosure defense attorney (if you have not already done so) and go over what legal choices you may have. Motion for Enlargement of Time gives you that opportunity to regroup and address this as a legal matter and not just a financial fiasco.
You cannot mount a Foreclosure Defense just to delay the inevitable, but you can use the time it gives you to pursue a strategy toward your best benefit, such as a mortgage modification or short sale. If only you could file for a Motion for Enlargement of Shopping Days.
