Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
When I met with my Lawyer they explained by Filing a Chpt. 7 I would be able to wipe out everything including the Home.
I can reaffirm the Mortgage & by doing this we would then become fully responsible for the loan & it will not be including in the discharge.
We bought our home for 489 now worth 290 what would you recommend we do in order to keep our home?
Can we continue to keep the home after filing a Chapter 7? Is, it worth fighting for or just walking away?
