I have decreased income and am lopsided on my mortgage. Do I have any options out there?

Yes fortunately you do have some options. If you are looking to refinance, the first option I would recommend is to look into the HARP program. This is a Fannie Mae / Freddie Mac program that was specifically designed to assist borrowers who are underwater on their mortgage. That said, you will still have to qualify on income but a competent loan officer will be able to assist you with that. Perhaps adding a co-borrower will help you qualify since you can use their income. You can also look into a possible loan modification if a refinance is not feasible.
I hope this helps.
