Hello and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you.

How much is your house worth? Depending on how much equity you have, you may be able to keep the house even if you file for Chapter 7 rather than 13.

Also, can you be more specific about your debt to SBA? What kind of debt is it? Is it owed to the government?
