I had just filed for bankruptcy and own my house and have lived here since 1988 and am looking for a way to get out of paying my mortgage as the economy is so bad no jobs are coming. Self employed contractor
Is there a way to settle my mortgage debt quickly?
The best way to handle mortgage debt on a house you can’t pay is to hand the house back to the bank and then include the residual debt owed in bankruptcy. However you may not be able to do that since you just filed bankruptcy. But talk to your bankruptcy attorney to see if it may be possible to amend your filing.
