I lost at a summary judgment hearing and dependent was awarded monetary judgment. I need to appeal but understand that I must put up a bond to do so. I have spent all money I have to fight this wrongful foreclosure - no bond money...Eviction is in two days - HELP! Feel I can win appeal. Have owned home for many years - will bankruptcy stop eviction and set aside bond so I can file appeal?

Answer

Bankruptcy will delay it and that may help--but will not stop foreclosure completely; you can still file/sue after they foreclose if need be--
