Q. if a couple gets divorced and one partner files for bankruptcy can they touch the house you both own?
A: The answer is yes. Of course whether or not you are in a community property state or not also effects how much a trustee can do. Basically the trustee owns the excess equity in any Chapter 7 case. Filing the case gives that equity to the trustee at the moment of filing and it cannot be undone without the trustee approval. You have the right to dismiss a 13 you have no right to dismiss a Chapter 7 once it is filed. The fact that these are medical bills and credit cards has nothing to do with whether the trustee can sell the home. What you do by filling is to hand it to the trustee.
Q. I need to file bankruptcy. I hear that if I fall under a certain income that I can get free or at least financial Help??
A: Almost every lawyer gives a free initial consultation. However you get what you pay for. You can get a pro-bono attorney if you have little or no income. But be realistic we can not work for free. We have to pay for the office and our student loans. If the attorney is learning how to file a bankruptcy by doing your case it probably wont have the quality of someone who charges for it and has more experience. I know some people will not like this answer but people sometimes pay dearly for unexperienced attorneys who do cases pro bono if you have assets you can lose.
