How did you avoid foreclosure?

We are at the hairy brink. I'm trying everything to find a job and no luck for months. We have three kids and don't want them to go through the horror I had to when my parents lost their home. It changed my life forever. Thankfully I was older. But my children are young. What did you do? Is there any hope? We have a very large and snobby mortgage company. Our credit is shot, our finances are in ruins, and cash is very very tight - obviously! Please help.

Sometimes it might be better to just bite the bullet...We had a massive mortgage with one income, before things got too bad, we sold up and brought another house which cut our mortgage in half, we can now live without stress...

well, it's just so happened that this was one of the last most affordable houses in the county. i am kind of restricted as to where we live because of a custody agreement.

Would selling your house and renting an apartment be easier financially? Or are the cost of apartments in your area similar to your current mortgage?
