Either Chapter 12 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy may help you out. They both allow you to cure whatever mortgage payments are behind over a 3 to 5 year period, during which time you make payments into a Plan, and make the creditor (even the FSA) treat you as if you are current as long as you pay the Plan payment (catching up the mortgage) and pay the current mortgage payments as they come due.

Chapter 12 and Chapter 13 also let you get rid of most or all of your unsecured debt (credit cards, medical bills, etc) to help you out.

I strongly suggest you meet with a bankruptcy attorney in your area. Many of them offer free consultations.

Hope this helps,
