Thank you for your question. I am happy to assist you.
In order for a credit card company to put a lien against your home, they first need to file suit against you and obtain a judgment.
If you choose to file bankruptcy, the assets that you may retain in a bankruptcy depend upon the Chapter bankruptcy you file and the state exemptions.
As an individual, there are two types of bankruptcy available. A Chapter 7 and a Chapter 13. There are distinct differences in between a Chapter 7 and a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
A Chapter 7 bankruptcy could discharge (erase) all of your unsecured debt such as credit cards, judgments and personal loans. It would be an opportunity for a fresh financial start. However, you may have to surrender assets that exceed your exemption.
I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.
