My girlfriend and I own two piesces of property together.

Customer Question

My girlfriend and I own two piesces of property together. I live in one, she lives in the other. She has already filed for bankruptcy. Her attorney has indicated that if the bankruptcy court deems it necessary to sell the house she lives in, that house will be homesteaded as that is where she lives. My question is, she can't homestead the property that I live in, but should I homestead it to make it more difficult for the bankruptcy court to sell it?
