If you own a home and are considering filing for bankruptcy, one of the first questions probably is “Can I keep my home?” And if you’re reading things online (which we all do), you may have read some scary stories about how people lost their home in a bankruptcy. It does happen. But it doesn’t have to. You just need to ensure you have a bankruptcy attorney who understands the different chapters of bankruptcy and can advise you as to what your options are. Whether you are current on your mortgage or past due, you can still put a plan together in bankruptcy to keep your home.
