    You really need to engage an attorney. There are differences from state to state when it comes to housing and there will be questions about joint versus individual ownership, community property, mortgage responsibility and a host of issues. And your divorce attorney may disagree with your bankruptcy attorney about certain things so make sure you listen to the right attorney.

    Good Luck!
