If working with your mortgage doesn't work, you may have another option; Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. Chapter 13 allows you to take up to 5 years to catch up on your mortgage. You will be required to start paying your regular mortgage payment and make another payment to a Trustee to pay your mortgage arrears. But, if you can do that, the mortgage company has no real say accepting the back payments over 5 years. If you find yourself out of options with the mortgage company and want to save your home, talk to a bankruptcy attorney.
