At times, this is due to different life circumstances, and there is no way to pay back the monthly payments to the mortgage bank.

It is important to mention that in any case where there's a chance of getting an eviction notice, one should approach a collection attorney immediately, since the law provides certain protections for the borrower.

If you fail in paying your mortgage payment, the attorney will check to see how many payments were missed, and what can be done in order to minimize the damages and stop the incline of the situation.
