How a home is handled in bankruptcy depends on the type of BK filed, state or federal or a combination of the two. In chapter 7, all nonexempt assets are liquidated to pay creditors. The state or federal homestead exemption would apply in regards to the home. In a chapt. 13, debts are consolidated and a payment plan of 3-5 years is set up to repay creditors. And any secured debts are usually reaffirmed with the lender. You can refer to the bankruptcy statues of your state to ascertain if your home is protected by the homestead exemption amount.
