This is general information and no attorney client relationship is established.
The site may ask you if you wish to speak by phone for an extra charge. Many find the phone call to be the easiest and fastest way to get the information they need. I am also happy to continue online.
Texas law is very heavily weighted in favor of a debtor. So, if the TX property is your primary residence then no lien is possible by the lender in the IL mortgage if they have a deficiency judgment. Your TX homestead is protected from such creditor claims under TX law.
