Homeowner Considers Refinancing

by Althea from Jackson, Mississippi, USA

Regarding Homeowner Considers Refinancing: Kate, I refinanced my home two years ago to do much needed repair. At the time I did not have a car note. My car put me down so I had to get a car. My mortgage payment went up about $180.00 more and the ARM will make it even higher in 2009, I am one note behind as of this month.


I have let a credit card bill get behind in order to pay my house note, car and car insurance. My credit score is not good.

Would I be wasting my time trying to refinance to save my house and not get further behind?
