I'm going to completely put my business out here so that I may get some help/advice on what I should do.
Ok, here it goes. My husband and I filed for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy last year and we're in it for 5 years. The main reason we filed was because we were looking at losing our house (which belonged to my grandparents, so I've lived in it my entire life basically) because we got so far behind on our mortgage due to my husband losing a really good job back in 2016. My husband was in a new job (about 2 months) when we filed. Our main problem is that we barely get to bring home enough money to buy groceries, pet supplies (one chihuahua) and essentials, that we're really struggling with being able to pay all of our other monthly bills. The house is over 50 years old and is starting to fall apart and we have no money to get anything fixed. And on top of all that, my husband lost his job and they won't pay him unemployment and he's been trying so hard to find another job but is having a hard time getting hired. He does handyman type jobs but not enough to really make an impact. I would get a second job but at the moment I have some health issues that prevent me from being able to work more than my regular 40 hrs.
I guess what I need help/advice on is should we try and stay in the bankruptcy and keep struggling or should we just let in get dismissed and move on? Even if he finds a job we'll still be struggling.
Ugghh, I hate being in this position.
Thanks for any and all help/advice.
