If you don't pay the 2nd mortgage the lender will take the house. It is a secured loan so, meaning that they get something in return for lending you the money. If you don't pay back the money, they get the house.

Filed chapter 7 bankruptcy is second mortgage gone?

If you are keeping your house and you have a first and a second, your second will not go away. If you are letting your house go, then the first and second will go. If your house is more than or equal to your first mortgage and you file a chapter 13, then your second will be "gone" in the end.

How hard is it to get a mortgage after chapter 13 discharge?

If you have just filed bankruptcy, you will not be barred from ever obtaining a mortgage loan; however, you will not be able to get one immediately. When you can get a mortgage after bankruptcy will depend upon the type of loan you want, the type of bankruptcy you filed, and how good your credit is at the time you want the loan.

If you had a foreclosure two years ago and filed a chapter 13 bankruptcy last year that was dismissed when will you be able to get a new mortgage?

In theory you can get a new mortgage anytime, but it is going to be more dependent on your credit score, how much equity you have, and your mortgage payment history over the past 12-months. Your grading will be determined by how long ago you filed the BK and how long ago the foreclosure was filed, but you should be able to qualify for a new mortgage loan.

Can you file chapter 13 bankruptcy after you have filed a chapter 7 in Indiana?

A chapter 13 bankruptcy can be filed if it has been at least 4 years from the date of the discharge of a chapter 7. Nonsense. You can file a chapter 13 the day after the 7 is closed. You may not be eligible for a discharge, but the point of doing a "chapter 20" is usually to dump the unsecured debt in the 7 and use the 13 to get caught up on the mortgage, for which no discharge is necessary.

You went through chapter 7 2 years ago and found your 2nd mortgate listed on your credit report as discharges and included in bankruptcy 0 balance what does this mean?

It may mean the credit report is in error. It may mean there was no equity supporting the second mortgage and your lawyer filed a motion to "strip" it down (especially if it was before the 2007 changes took effect). It may mean you do not owe the second mortgage any more. It is unclear if the credit report is a new one, and you don't say if you've been paying the second mortgage since then.

How can a civil judgment be placed after bankruptcy Mortgage included in bankruptcy and after discharge bank filed civil judgment for amount of mortgage Can they do thid?

Assuming a Chapter 7 was filed, if you did not surrender the property to the bank, the bank would file for relief from stay and be able to pursue foreclosure. If you surrendered the property, the mortgage balance was discharged and the bank was in violation of the automatic stay. A notice of the bankruptcy should have been filed with the court the bank sued you in. You cannot ignore legal procedures taken against you after a discharge. You have to respond appropriately.
