This really depends on a number of facts that include the state that you live in, the amount of exemptions your state has for bankruptcy, whether your home has equity and whether you are current on the mortgage. It will also depend on what type of bankruptcy you are trying to file. In cases where there is no equity in your home and you are continuing to pay the home, you should be able to keep your home. If there is equity in your home then you need to look at what bankruptcy exemptions are available in your state to protect the equity in your home.
