Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you have the evidence you claim, you should first make a complaint to the state attorney general's consumer protection unit. You also need to get a suit filed against the mortgage company for unfair and deceptive business practices and for fraud and breach of contract. Reinstating the Ch 13 or filing Ch 7 would at the least delay any foreclosure actions. However, you still need to sue and it should not cost $20K like you were told, since if you prove unfair and deceptive practices you can get a judgment for the other party to pay your attorney's fees. Also, shop around consumer protection attorneys as many of them will negotiate a much lower price than you were told.
