perhaps not. If the courts determine that the value is too great and that the car and/or motorcycle are not necessary for you to maintain employment you may be forced to turn over one or both.

You may, provided you do not list it in the bankruptcy, you file chapter 13 reorginization, or if you reaffirm with the mortgage holder. That is a dangerous answer. You must list all assets, including your house, in a bankruptcy. You can keep the house if you reaffirm the mortgages and other debts secured by the house in a Chapter 7 and you are not in arrears on the mortgages, or you file a Chapter 13 to get caught up on the secured debt arrears.

Make sure to look into the changes and different effects that a chapter 7 (as compared to Chapter 13) will have on you.
