If you file a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, you will be able to pay the mortgage arrears over a period of 5 years - in addition to the regular monthly mortgage payment - and the mortgage company will have to accept this arrangement, as they will not be able to foreclose as long as you are making the monthly payments.
Your other creditors will also receive payments each month, but the unsecured creditors - such as credit cards - get paid after the secured creditors - such as the mortgage company.
