There is equal right to the marital residence - regardless if you file bankruptcy or not.
You and you wife have some serious issues. Debt incurred during the marriage is considered marital debt regardless of under whose name it was incurred - therefore, she is jointly liable for the debt in family division although she may not be liable through other civil or bankruptcy court.
How is the house titled - jointly or individually?
Fist, you have not clicked "accept" yet - so you have not paid anything yet.
Second, your are only listed as paying $30.00 - that's it - I don't know where your getting the $60.00 from - no fraud or scamming going on here by this web site.
Third, if you want to give your wife everything - you can - and then file your bankruptcy individually and discharge all your debt. However, she will have to refinance the house into her name alone without your help. If she agrees to this you can certainly move out and move on with your life.
