Hello there --
The income of the persons declaring bankruptcy should be used. You should call that monthly payment to the equity line your "rent" on the paperwork because the trustee will wonder how you are living there for nothing. You live in your mother's house and you pay her rent / room & board money. No, your niece's food stamps do not need to be included in any of the calculations.
