Keeping Your Property in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Exemptions allow you to keep your house, your car and the vast majority, if not all, of your personal property when filing Chapter 7, provided you are current on your payments. If you have fallen behind, you may have to catch up.

Liquidation of assets is not a part of the Chapter 13 process, so you are definitely able to keep your house, your car and all other property. Furthermore, filing Chapter 13 may also offer you the opportunity to strip a second mortgage on your house if you are upside-down on your mortgage. In other words, not only can you keep your home, you can eliminate the second mortgage and make your debt load more manageable for the future.
