Can I keep my home if I file for bankruptcy?
When people are facing financial difficulty and thinking of filing for bankruptcy, one of the most common questions is whether or not they will lose their home. This question can sometimes be hard to answer because it depends on the individual case. Every case is unique and will depend greatly on what chapter of bankruptcy you file. For the most part, you will have a greater chance of keeping your home through Chapter 13 bankruptcy than Chapter 7; however, there are property exemptions available for debtors under Chapter 7.
