Filing bankruptcy stops the sale. It must be filed before 8am the day of the sale in California.

Yes, probably. You have a ton of deadlines to meet. I'm assuming you filed a CH13, and I'm assuming you filed a partial petition. Meet with a lawyer ASAP!

    Filing Chapter 13 will delay the sale of real estate, but unless the Chapter 13 can go through to confirmation or result in a resolution of the problem, any delay will be temporary. This is a one shot opportunity and do not blow it by rushing into it like a bull in a china shop. Get expert representation or prepare to start packing.

    Yes, but be aware that you have to take a mandatory credit counseling course online or by phone before you can file for bankruptcy, in addition to all the other paperwork which would include, at minimum, a list of all your creditors. You need to act fast!

    Filing the Ch. 13 will stop the sale but must also GIVE NOTICE IMMEDIATELY TO THE COURT AND TO THE CREDITOR'S LAWYER. Remember the Bank can move for Relief from Stay if they have grounds, and your Ch. 13 Plan will have to provide for full payment of any arrearage. You can be very much helped by an experienced Bankruptcy lawyer.
