Customer Question
If you have a mortgage...
If you have a mortgage loan with an exspouse and she filed chapter 13 included loan on bankruptcy but did not make mortgage payment for the past month and abandoned and moved out of home. How do I take possession of property if she has not been dismissed from bankruptcy and has stated to the court that she no longer wants home but has not kept her contractual agreement with Chapter 13 plan. Property is currently vacant and want to cure debt so it will not affect my credit.
