The borrower should contact the lender as soon as possible and try to find an equitable arrangement to catch up on missed payments. If the lender is not agreeable to such, foreclosure proceedings will likely be implemented.

If you sell your home after foreclosure proceedings have started and you have a discharged bankruptcy on the home will you receive the proceeds?

I'm guessing what your saying: You went BK and reaffirmed the mortgage. The BK with the reaffirmation was discharged and you kept the home. Your now behind again and being foreclosed. Of course you can still sell the house - you still own it and your not now under any BK court restraint. To effect the sale, you have to pay off the mortgage (and any other liens) against the house in the closing.

Do you have to be working to file for bankruptcy?

There are three types of bankruptcy namely Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, and Chapter 11 Business Bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy will discharge most types of debts for the average citizen. It will stay on record for ten years, but the major benefit is the stay it provides which prevents creditors from hassling you. On the other hand Chapter 11 bankruptcy is used by businesses, not citizens, to reorganize debts while Chapter 13 bankruptcy is wage earner's bankruptcy, which allows you to repay your debt through a plan. Among these three, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is considered as the best option for people with a steady income, who happen to have fallen behind in loan payments. idk and i dont give rats a**. hahahaha

Bankruptcy is not claimed on individual loans, a bankruptcy involves all your debt.

The same is true of a home loan.

Your bankruptcy was dismissed can they take your car?

If you are behind payments on the car, yes - the company with the loan can repo the car. The same law applies if you had or had not filed bankruptcy. The only thing a bankruptcy can do is 1) protect assets DURING the bankruptcy (Automatic Stay) and 2) allow you to reconfigure the terms of secured loans. (like your car) Speak with an attorney about your specific situation. If you can not find an attorney, contact your local Bar association and they will refer you to one.
