Hello,

I answered your previous post. Please refer to that thread.


You can file in Georgia but must use the Florida exemptions.


You appear able to keep your Georgia home if you continue paying the mortgage payments.


Please post me back on this thread if you need an additional clarification.

Hello,


I do not understand about the personnal property is this furniture, dishes,household, jewlery and such...also an investment that no longer pays dividends and a hedge fund with 30k which is all I have in cash to getby until I find a job


Yes all of those items are considered personal property.


I neglected to mention that a new Florida statute provides a $4,000 "wildcard" personal property exemption to bankruptcy debtors who do not claim a homestead exemption. Joint debtors can claim a $8,000 wildcard exemption. Thus you would be able to apply the 8K to your personal property.


and my husband gget 1200.00 per month in social security starting in december of this month.

The SS would be exempt.


I hope that I have helped you. Please accept this answer so that I am paid for my work thus far.

Hello,


So sorry. I do not know why I did not receive your questions.


If you do not file bankruptcy, the lender can obtain a judgment and proceed against your assets.


You can file bankruptcy now or after the foreclosure. However, you will want to file BEFORE you obtain employment. The bankruptcy will typically discharge (erase) and deficiency.


Typically no one will go to your house to inspect your furniture. You are required to list your personal property at its current market value. For your household items, think garage sale price.


Best wishes for a successful outcome. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to submit them to me directly.


Thank you,
