Question Details:We currently owe more than what our home is worth.
No attorney can tell you to shirk your legal obligations. If you default and the bank forecloses it will have an affect upon your credit rating for years to come. And if the house sells for less that the mortgage then you will end up with a deficiency judgement against you. A deed in lieu of foreclosure or a short sale make by better options. Both with waiver of deficiency. Good luck.
