Are the stimulus checks exempt from the bankruptcy courts?
Sometimes, parts of a living trust can be exempt from bankruptcy such as exemptions for a homestead, but even that isn't always the case. How a living trust is treated in a bankruptcy varies depending on how the laws of the state treat this type of trust as a whole. Typically though, living trusts are not fully exempt from bankruptcy.

Your dad and you own a house together it is your primary residence you file bankruptcy can the courts go after all equity in the house or just your 50 The house has no mortgage on it?
The courts don't go after anything. The bankruptcy trustee will go after any non-exempt property, as is his duty. If you own half the house, you only own half the equity. The next question is whether you and your father have filed homestead declarations, or if you both can. You need to talk to a lawyer in your state.
