Advice in this tough time.
[ Edited ]

Here is my situation.  


Currently in some tough times after being laid off my second JOB about 6 months ago after surgery. We tried to delay some payments, but right now I'm just stuck with one JOB and it's not enough.  My hurband is also strugling to find a job due to his condition.


I had a repossesion of my car last 2 months ago.  


Our house is paid off, but had to take out a property tax loan about 6 years ago.   I defaulted on that loan, and right now they are saying I owe 25K.  They are threatning to forclose in the next month....


I honestly don't what my options are right now.  My equifax fico is 579.

  I have the repo on my account, a collectinos of $98 from SWB  and a perfect history on a secured CAP ONE card and perfect history on a second CAP ONE card with a CL of $750

And a newly opened credit builder loan for $300 at from a local credit union.


The only option right now I believe I have is trying to get a Home Equity loan, becuase our house is valued at around 220K.  But I don't know if I would be approved or not.


What would you suggest in this situation?
