Yes you can get rid of your second mortgage in bankruptcy!

If you are having problems making your second mortgage payment or home equity line of credit you may want to meet with one of our lawyers to see if we can get rid of that secondary mortgage. When you file a chapter 13 bankruptcy a bankruptcy Judge may get rid of a second mortgage or home equity loan if that mortgage is wholly unsecured. Those secondary mortgages are wholly unsecured if your home is valued at an amount equal to or less than the amount you owe on your first mortgage. As an example. You have a home worth $150,000.00 with a 1st mortgage of $155,000.00 and a 2nd mortgage of $30,000.00. In this case the 2nd mortgage company would get nothing in the event your home sold for $150,000.00 or less. For that reason a Chapter 13 judge would order the 2nd mortgage void since it is entirely or wholly unsecured.

This issue can sometimes be very confusing. For that reason we always suggest you set up a free consultation with one of our lawyers a Miller & Miller. There is never a charge for an initial consultation and we are happy to meet with you to discuss all of your options.
