I make 6 figures but expenses far exceed my income... 2 mortgages - car loan , etc...
I rented my home and I am living with a friend who is on SS - so I am paying their mortgage as rent. How do they determine in chapter 13 what you pay to the trustee... I have about 100 a month is disposable income for my expenses, housing, medical, etc - so how could i possibly pay this money back under chapter 13..
Is there a sight that says what they can take away. I may go on the title of my friends home but if i file the homestead act will it protect the home - can we both have the homestead so my roommates creditors nor mine will be able to touch the condo that I will always pay as my first payment - and never miss.
