Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight.
I am so sorry that you are having to deal with all of this.If this goes into foreclosure and there is a deficiency they sue you for a deficiency judgment.They cannot take your pension here or social security but they can garnish a bank account.
Bankruptcy is a great idea here, Chapter 7 to discharge the debt.If you have other credit cards or other bills this can give you a new start.You can plan for such a filing, people often trade for a newer car, buy some appliances because your credit will be the dumpster for awhile.So timing can be important if you want to plan for this.
You can wait here, let it go into foreclosure and see if they sue for deficiency or not.Then you can still file Chapter 7.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Please let me know if you have more follow up.Thanks again.
They can just sue on the note , they don't have to take it back, if it is damaged or not worth it title wise they sometimes just sue the people on the note.
It would be like an unsecured note, they have right to just sue on it if they choose.There cold also be problems with title here or other liens that make it not worth it.
Thanks for the follow up here.
