Bankruptcy does not remove liens, so if you have a lien, a voluntary lien such as a car loan, the bankruptcy can discharge your personal obligation on the note, but it doesn’t remove the lien. The creditor can repossess the collateral if you do not make the payments. If the lien is an involuntary lien such as a judgement lien where a creditor has obtained a judgement against you and that has created a cloud on title to your homestead, then that lien can be avoided in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and you should definitely discuss that with a qualified attorney.
