Most states use the 90 day time frame. Foreclosure can be filed by the lender anytime after that, though many don't, opting to re-negotiate the debt or "short-sale" the property.

That varies from lender to lender and state to state. Generally, foreclosure proceedings are initiated after your payments are 90 days late - but that's the beginning, not the end. Beyond that basic rule of thumb, it all depends. The foreclosure process is typically not as fast as people fear.
