My husband and I filed chapter 13 just over 1 yr ago. It included a past due mortgage amount of about $6,000. Payments were bi-weekly payroll deduction through my husbands work. My name is ***** ***** the mortgage but is on the deed to the house. My husband died just over a month ago. I do not know where I stand with the mortgage. I have not been contacted by either the mortgage co or the trustee. I did notify our attorney but have not received any guidance. I'm not sure if I have any options to maintain home ownership.

I just receive a letter for a pending default action to be file on a timeshare. I told the corporation last year that I was in a distressed situation and was unable to pay. I inquired about a buy back and resale long before and they said that was not possible. I have never used the timeshare facilities and was told that they understood but the calls would keep coming. I had nothing to give, nor, did I have any new information to give them. I am hoping to get some assistance from this site for resolution. Thank you in advance.JA: Have you thoroughly reviewed the contract?Customer: I did.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not that I am currently aware of.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: How do I resolve this matter without any cost to myself.
