I was laid off in November. First unemployment in 30 years, I have a domestic partner that is still employed but our lifestyle was adapted to 2 incomes. I just do not want to have to deal with any repossessions. I am adamantly seeking employment without much luck.
Are there any services out there to help us reduce our monthly payments at least until I can find employment?
This is a problem with the standard lending contract. It is absolute without any allowance for unusual circumstances. It is simply not flexible enough for you to drop your payments back.
