No. In order for the house to be sold, permission to sell it must be obtained from the bankruptcy Court.

I understand that what I am asking if me and my wife go to family court and the house is under bankruptcy protection is there anyway the family judge could order me to sell it
Bankruptcy Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 2 years ago

No, unless the property division has been cleared by the bankruptcy Court. The State Court has not authority to order the sell without permission of the bankruptcy Court. However, if the State Court Judge is not aware of bankruptcy rules and makes the Order, then you would need to file Motion to Vacate the Order because the Order is not proper without the permission of the Bankruptcy Court.

Ok so is there any chance that the bankruptcy court would allow the sell
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I loose you
Bankruptcy Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 2 years ago

Whether or not the bankruptcy Court would allow the sell would solely depend on the argument presented to the bankruptcy Court.

that's a yes I am just wanting to no how common that would be
Bankruptcy Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 2 years ago

I cannot say a "yes" because I do not know what evidence is going to be presented to the bankruptcy Court. Every case is different based on specific facts.
