Husband abandoned me and no longer lives in our home. I'm on social security disability, sever break in L1 and have sever osteoporosis, I'm 51 yrs. old. I'm unable to afford a divorce. I had a credit score up in the 800's until he stopped paying the mortgage which is in his name only. I must stay in the house I have no where to go. Both our names r on the deed. What can one do if they can't afford a lawyer. Should I apply for bankruptcy ? I already spoke to the creditors and was paying a lower amount since last Aug. I can no longer. My mom was helping cover my credit payments bc my entire ss check goes to the mortgage and utilities. I barely have anything left of food for the month and have had to stop seeing my doctors. My total debt is approx. $15,000.00 between 5 credit cards.
