The house debt was in your Chapter 13. You were allowed to pay directly. It sounds as if your case is filed in PA: hence, you need a PA bankruptcy attorney. I believe he would amend the Plan to surrender the house and treat the deficiency as a unsecured debt.
Your attorney will know how to proceed. I would expect your attorney to take the deposition of the trustee to establish the full extent of the trust assets and income. This would give your attorney the ability to examine the trust documents to determine whether there is a spendthrift clause which is effective. I too don't believe this is a case for a private investigator. Through depositions and production of documents, your attorney will be able to show his income by this standard of living.

A sale pursuant to a foreclosure can only be done by the Sheriff of the County after the property is appraised by three fee holders in the county. This is to establish the property's value. Opening bid is 2/3 of the appraised value. I hope this helps.
Hopefully you were represented in the dissolution negotiations, if not, you are going to need an attorney now. There are sixteen different factors the Ohio courts are to consider in making a spousal support order. The fact you are on disability is very important but is not the only factor. You need to obtain an attorney who does divorce law and given him or her all the facts so that he or she can advise you.
