In most cases, an individual will retain most, if not all, of their belongings. There are certain debts, such as child support, student loans, and taxes, that generally cannot be discharged. You may be able to retain your home, if you are current on your mortgage and will be able to remain current after your other debts are discharged. If you cannot maintain your mortgage after your discharge, you may lose your home in foreclosure anyway. You will need to consider whether filing for Chapter 7 makes economic sense.

When you file for Chapter 13, you agree to repay all, or a portion, of your debts, over time, supervised by the bankruptcy court. Chapter 13 allows you to keep your property while you are using your income to repay some or all of your debts, including missed payments. If you are facing foreclosure on your home, Chapter 13 can provide a powerful remedy. You can keep your home by proposing a repayment plan that includes your missed payments, as long as you remain current on your mortgage. Chapter 13 repayment plans generally last either 3 or 5 years, depending on your circumstances. <br><br>You may be able to reduce the amount you pay for your vehicle, paying its replacement value over the life of your plan, rather than the amount you actually owe. You are protected from lawsuits, garnishments, and other creditor actions while<br>the plan is in effect. At the conclusion of your plan you receive a discharge. This may include and#226;and#128;and#156;strippingand#226;and#128;and#157; your second and third mortgages.
