Will I Lose My Home If I File Bankruptcy?
Although bankruptcy is a great relief option for those who are struggling with immense debt, it can be an overwhelming decision to make. Despite the opportunity for a fresh start, not knowing whether you will lose your car or, worse, the roof over your head can make anyone pause. But you do not have to navigate the process alone.
If you are considering bankruptcy, contact Ted Stuckenschneider PC at once. Let our board-certified consumer bankruptcy attorney address your concerns and put them to rest today.
How Can I Keep My House?
Filing for bankruptcy does not mean you will lose everything. Even through the Chapter 7 bankruptcy process, you may still be able to keep essential assets such as your home and your vehicle.
But your ability to keep your home also depends on the following factors:
- Whether you are current on your mortgage payments
- If you can keep up with the payments after bankruptcy
- If the homestead exemption can protect your home’s equity
- The amount of equity in your house
If filing Chapter 7 would increase the risk of you losing your home, we can help you explore Chapter 13 bankruptcy. While Chapter 13 does not allow you to clean your slate, it does allow you to restructure your debt, continue making payments and keep your property.
