You can hire an attorney to do a "lien strip". This can strip the second mortgages, and you keep your house. Be prepared to do a bankruptcy. I do not know know how it is done, I have just heard about it.

It is sad that Mr. Marman seems to think it is appropriate to give legal advice on rumors. What you need to do is contact a bankruptcy attorney. That is the only option in the situation you describe.
