I just received a writ of execution There is a judgement against

Customer Question

I just received a writ of execution There is a judgement against me. It states that my property could be held or taken to pay the judgement. It is a credit card. My condominium is the only asset I have. I have 238 month income and could not pay what the monthly amount was that I had to pay. I tried very hard. I did not file for bankruptcy I had credit counseling. I was told that I couln`t qualify because I did not have enough income for bankruptcy. I am the widow of a Vietnam vet I tried so hard but because of my pride it is very likely that I will end up homeless. Is there anything I can do?

I have on assets except my cond. The taxes are paid. I received a certificate of counseling 09/26.At that time Consumer Credit Counseling of Delaware notified them about my inability to pay the minimum balance on my card. Up to my health problems and loss of a job I had always paid on time. I had a praecipe for default judgement 0ct.26/2007.The debt started at about 5000 and is now 1100. I did start making payments at 350/monthly. I did not sign anything. Over the phone I told them I could not make this high of a payment and they said I had no choice. I was paying off my debts one by one. The counselor had told me that I did not have even enough money to meet my basic needs or file for bankruptcy
