Re: Divorce and Foreclosure

It is possible that your mother could file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy to discharge the mortgage. She should speak with an attorney who can examine her entire financial situation to determine if she is eligible. If she does not file bankruptcy, she could be sued for any deficiency balance that might accrue after foreclosure. Other than your mother filing bankruptcy, the only way she could get "out" of the mortgage would be for your father to refinance the mortgage without her.
