If my husband filed bankruptcy chapter 7. It has been discharge. His name is the only one that was on the mortgage but both of our names are on the deed. What happens to me?

Hello, My husband filed chpt. 13 in order to save our home, however the loan company "worked" out an agreement in which we paid $2300 a month not inclusive of the rent we pay of $1100 monthly. Needless to say it was a disaster. The house went to foreclosure in sept. The loan was in his name. I am interested in purchasing a home in a few months and wanted to know if I could include him on in the obtaining of a mortgage? I plan on purchasing in the next 6-7 months , at that time he would have been in clpt. 13, 19 months. How does the foreclosure affect the chpt. 13?


Sorry, I meant Nicole!

We have two loans on the house...we received a letter from the bigger of the two loans that they would be increasing our interest rate and they could increase it every 6 months from this point on. We had a pre-payment penality for 3 years but that 3 years will be up this month...the only thing is that my husband filed bankruptcy probably about a year ago. At the time we weren't married but we both owned the house with me being primary owner. We have no been married for about 4 months. Initially I had good credit but he had the money. I still have the better credit but I owe alot. My question long typically should we wait before we refinance especially with the bankruptcy? Would it be better to refinace now in hopes that we get it at a fixed rate? Or should we wait a little longer even though the interest rate will continue to increase every 6 months?

My husband filed bankruptcy 3 years ago. Ch13. He thought it was a 3 yr it is a 5. We get letters all the time about paying it off early.
