    Answered . If you have a legal defense, you should cite it. But the fact that you have been out sick isn't a legal defense to not paying your ongoing mortgage debt in your Chapter 13. Your best chance to resolve this will be to reach an agreement with your lender, either with a loan modification or what is called an APO, adequate protection order, in which you arrange to catch up the debt promptly. Hope this perspective helps!

    Answered . Probably not. Just have your BK attorney file a new Plan that takes care of the arrears.
