Arrange your finances in a Structured Way
The best way to save your home from foreclosure, is to avoid it. You should organize your finances and make sure to prioritize your payments. For avoiding foreclosure-

Ask your lender to set a specific date to pay the missed mortgage payments. Your mortgage lender may want late fees, interest, or penalties but if you have time to re-pay then it would be very helpful.
