Types of Bankruptcy - 7 & 13
CHAPTER 7 If you qualify and you are eligible.
A Chapter 7 will eliminate most unsecure debt, and
you will have (3) three options as it relates to secured
debt. You can reaffirm, surrender, or redeem.
Reaffirming - means you basically recommit to the same debt and terms that you had prior to filing. (examples, your house, your vehicles, & some small personal loans)
Surrendering – means you can give back properties, (examples, your house, your vehicles, & some small personal loans) and you do not have to pay anything else on the properties (collateral) you are surrendering.
Redeeming – means you can buy the collateral item for what it is worth.
CHAPTER 13 If you are required to file a chapter 13 you will pay back a repayment that is your “best effort.” This allows your creditors to receive some of the monies owed them.

I have HELPED HUNDREDS of PEOPLE KEEP their House. The pivotal issues that must be considered; The total amount of monies you're behind? Do you owe more than it's worth? In most cases if you are current on the debts that are tied to these types of properties your property will not be affected.
