You are not prevented from moving as a result of filing bankruptcy. Filing bankruptcy is not a crime.

It depends on what you want to do with the house secured by the second mortgage and which chapter of bankruptcy you file. First, regarding the credit cards, yes you can always file on multiple credit cards so long as they were not used in anticipation of bankruptcy. Generally it is a good idea to wait at least 90 days since any card was used before filing the bankruptcy case, and DO NOT make any charges once you think you may file bankruptcy. The run-up-the-cards-before-filing-bankruptcy technique many people think is so clever may be deemed fraud and can result in a federal lawsuit (called an Adversary Proceeding) and repayment of the debt plus attorneys fees. Second, regarding the second mortgage: If you want to keep the home, the second mortgage must be kept also UNLESS you are filing Chapter 13 AND the amount of the first mortgage exceeds the value of the home at the time of filing. So, in the vast majority of cases, if you file bankruptcy you are stuck with all mortgages if you want to keep the home. By way of example of the rare instance when a junior mortgage can be discharged in bankruptcy, say your home is worth $100,000, and you owe $101,000 on your first mortgage. If you file Chapter 13 (repayment plan), you can "strip" the second mortgage (and third, fourth, etc) since the amount owed on the first mortgage exceeds the value of the home. In Chapter 7, you have to keep all mortgages regardless of the value. Another example, say you owe $99,999 on the first mortgage and the home is worth $100,000, and you have a second mortgage on which you owe $50,000. The entire $50,000 second mortgage survives no matter what chapter of bankruptcy you file because it is secured by $1. Yes, only $1 can commit you to the entire second mortgage.

Yes, a reaffirmed mortgage needs to reflect the mortgage payment history before, during and after the bankruptcy proceedings. "In Bankruptcy" needs to portray only DISCHARGED BY or INCLUDED IN...Bankruptcy. Contact your mortgage company so that all of your payment history shows on all three bureaus. No. Not if it were a part of the bankruptcy filing. It may or may not be marked included in bankruptcy or reaffirmed in bankrutpcy. It will still remain on the CR for the prescribed time.

"It is exceedingly difficult to do so. In most cases, bankruptcy inhibits that for the duration that the filing stays on record. If you do get a loan, it is usually at 8-12% rates, or 3-5% above the average. Total cost might be 200% of non bankruptcy loan."

Yes it is possible to qualify for a mortgage despite a Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing. In a Chapter 13 filing the debtor agrees to a court structured debt repayment schedule. Typically, after making payments on time to creditors as required by the bankruptcy agreement an individual can be discharged by the Court from the Chapter 13 proceeding. Once discharged from bankruptcy an individual can apply for a mortgage. Each bank has different rules about how soon someone can apply for a mortgage after a bankruptcy. Most people coming out of bankruptcy apply for an FHA mortgage loan since this program has the most lenient underwriting standards.

What do you mean? Filing bankruptcy is basically the same no matter what the reason for the filing.
