Elias’s section on fighting foreclosure in the courts helps readers understand the circumstances in which they may be able to delay or stop a foreclosure action. The appendixes provide summaries of each state’s foreclosure laws, a glossary, and information on finding and working with lawyers and bankruptcy petition preparers.
