Short answer, it depends on the circumstance. Foreclosure just means that they took back their property according to the terms of the loan. You are still responsible for the entire amount of the note that was not satisfied when the property was sold at auction. Since you probably still owe money to the lending institution, they can still report that you are not making payments on the outstanding amount of the debt. At this point, your only option is to either pay off the remaining part of the debt or file bankruptcy.

Payments in the last 12 months are reported on your credit report.

You may be able to get a statement that the house was redeemed in the bankrupcy, but all late notices for the past 12 months and/or a notice of foreclosure will remain.

How many payments have to be missed before foreclosure by the mortgage company?

Technically you are eligible for foreclosure the day you miss a payment, but in practice this is never the case. Most lenders will begin the foreclosure process after 3 payments are missed, but that does not mean the home will be foreclosed. Many lenders are required by law to work with the borrower to modify the loan, or otherwise demonstrate significant effort to avoid the foreclosure. Many foreclosures take 6 months to a year to complete. This varies greatly by state, loan type, and investor/owner of the loan.

Can a mortgage company foreclose if you are a little behind in payments but you are still paying on your mortgage?

The problem is that you haven't really defined your terms. It makes a difference whether "a little behind" means "the next day" or "two months late." It also depends on the precise terms of your loan contract.In general, the contracts are written so that technically the mortgage company can begin foreclosure proceedings if you're late at all. However, foreclosure is enough of a hassle that most do not until you've missed at least two payments, and even then, making up those payments (along with late fees) is usually sufficient to stop the foreclosure.

Can the mortgage company at any time take your home away if you are still making payments after bankruptcy?

Ususually in BK a house is either voluntarily surrendered, because it is not possible for the borrower(s) to keep up payments.. Or the buyer reaffirms the loan with the lender and works out a plan to repay missed payments. If your mortgage payments are current, I see no reason why the lender would seek foreclosure.

Is a foreclosure the same as bankruptcy?

No. People file banktruptcy when they have debts they can not pay back. It is a way for the courts to determine what assets an individual has, the order in which creditors get paid off, etc. A foreclosure is an action that a bank or mortgage company files when a borrower is delinquent on payments. It's a way to bring to the courts proof that a borrower is behind on payments, and giving the bank the right to auction off the house to pay off the loan. Often, though, people file banktruptcy as a way to hold off a foreclosure. However, you still have to make your mortgage payments (or new schedule of payments set up by the bankruptcy court) once the banktruptcy is over, or you risk being foreclosed on.
