The Marital Agreement also provides that I am to receive monthly alimony until 2014. The mortgage is 79% of my alimony. To date the house has not sold. My ex refuses to do a refinance to reduce the 8.8% mortgage, prevailed in his Specific Performance suit and the Judge ordered him to pay the mortgage from my alimony and pay his $13,000 atty fees. Over the past 3 years I have exhausted my entire savings and entire retirement to try and keep the mortgage paid, but have had to file Chapter 7 as I have no other financial resources left, have lost my health insurance and long term care insurance. I am 61 years old. We were married for 20 years. I have found that Chapter 7 will not protect my alimony. I have no home, no car. His income exceeds $500,000. Will Chapter 13 help?
