Don't hold me to this, but I don't think they can just take it back for being thirty days late. I think they would have to foreclose on your house first. Or get a judgment lien against your house first.

Can you be employed with a bank after claiming bankruptcy?

Yes you can. There is no legal base for a Bank to fire you for filing bankruptcy..... Filing bankruptcy is not a crime..... I even know people that got hired to work at the Bank after they had filed Chapter 13. I had to file chapter 13 after my divorce and got a raise couple months later at the bank. Not because I filed bankruptcy or because they would have felt sorry for me about getting divorce but because my job performance.

How soon after chapter 7 can I file chapter 13?

However, you are permitted to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy anytime after filing Chapter 7. Chapter 13 is a repayment of none, some or all of your debt over three to five years. Most or all of your creditors are lumped together into one large pool. Then, you make payments each month to the lawyer assigned to your case, called a liquidator. The liquidator distributes your payment to the creditors.There is some issue that you should know about while filing chapter 13 after chapter 7.1. If you file Chapter 13 within four years of filing Chapter 7, you cannot discharge your debts after you complete the three- to five-year Chapter 13 plan. You can still file the Chapter 13 to keep creditors from suing you, garnishing your paychecks or levying your bank account. This may require filing another Chapter 7 bankruptcy when you have passed the eight-year mark.2. If you file Chapter 13 four years after filing Chapter 7, you can have a very low monthly Chapter 13 payment plan and receive a full discharge of all remaining balances after you complete the three- to five-year plan. For example, you could pay as little as $100 a month for three years in a Chapter 13, paying very little to your creditors and yet still discharging the remaining balances owed.

What is a down payment on a house?

Most people borrow money from a bank when they want to buy a house, but they usually do not borrow 100% of the cost of the house. They usually do have some money to apply toward the cost of the house, and that amount is called a down payment. So to buy a house costing $200,000 a person might make a down payment of $50,000 and then borrow the remaining $150,000.

How do you get a deposit for a house when you have a mortgage with the same bank?

I infer from the wording of your question that you wish to borrow the money for the down payment on a house other than your primary residence. This is a big no-no. It doesn't matter what bank you go to. A down payment is supposed to be the loan-seeker's financial stake in a purchase. There are supposed to be no strings -- that is, liens -- attached to it.

Will filing chapter 13 bankruptcy affect a recent joint bank account?

If you have filed for bankruptcy as an individual, rather than as a couple, then you are only filing on your personal debts. Following this logic, only those funds that are yours (so your share of the bank account, if that is possible) will be "up for grabs." Your bankruptcy status should not have an effect on your partner.

What are the features of an automatic payment service?

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.
