Can You Discharge Your Second Mortgage?

Let's take a look at an example case to see how stripping a second mortgage can work for you:

Let's say you took out a mortgage to buy your house two years ago at an appraised value of $400,000. Since then, you have taken out a second mortgage in the amount of $100,000. By filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you may be able to strip the second mortgage altogether, leaving you with only the original value of the home to pay off.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to reorganize that outstanding amount into a more manageable payment plan. Furthermore, it stops foreclosure, liens and other creditor actions. An experienced bankruptcy lawyer can help you determine if bankruptcy is right for you and if it is possible to discharge your second mortgage by filing for bankruptcy.
