Will I lose my home when filing for bankruptcy?

One of the most commonly asked questions people want to know is will I lose my home when filing for bankruptcy? Board certified attorney Donald Golden says "In Florida, your home is protected from your creditors and you will be able to keep your house while filing for bankruptcy as long as you continue to make your mortgage payments." He says if you can't get your payments current, consider requesting a loan modification or a rehab plan with your mortgage company.
