Foreclosure Litigation Timeline -- Steps in a NJ Foreclosure
NJ Foreclosures progress through a number of stages:
- Pleadings Stage
- Discovery Stage
- Summary Judgment Stage
- Trial Stage
- Verdict Stage
By the time a "verdict" is rendered or a "judgment" is entered, the homeowner's rights to contest the foreclosure process have expired. Thus, it is important to raise all of the homeowners defenses and diligently pursue a workout or short sale by taking advantage of each stage in the foreclosure process.
