As a matter of fact, the Federal Court has ruled on a number of occasions that the “SSA enjoys no … immunity from the bankruptcy laws and that the overpayment debt is dischargeable under the provisions of the Bankruptcy Reform Act … we perceive no basis for distinguishing between a debt owed to the SSA and those debts owed to the Internal Revenue Service.” Neavear v. Schweiker, 674 F2d 1201 (7th Cir. 1982). In another case, the court held that a debt arising from the prepetition overpayment of Social Security benefits is dischargeable in bankruptcy, In re Eva June COST, 161 B.R. 856 (1993) United States Bankruptcy Court, S.D.

The only way to strip liens on a residential property is through chapter 13 and the second or third liens have to be 100% unsecured which in your case they are not because the value of your house exceeds the first loan. You may be able to strip the lien on the third loan in a chapter 13.
I highly recommend that you retain an experienced bankruptcy attorney in your jurisdiction to guide you through the complexities of bankruptcy law and procedure

can a default civil judgement be vacated and removed from credit report after payment in full.
Yes but make sure before you pay in full you enter into an agreement in writting with the creditor to file a satisfaction of a judgement with the court and put in an attorneys fees clause so in the event they fail to do so, you can go after them and collect your attorneys fees.See question
I need a bankruptcy lawyer for my corporation, also for my personal family, can you help find one at low cost in the wichita ks area?
Although you want to find a "cheap" attorney you want to make sure its a reputable attorney especially if dealing with your corporation. Please be aware that corporations do not receive a discharge in a chapter 7 so if you are planning on closing the corporation's doors you may not need to file a bk for the corporation but just for yourself maybe.See question

If the business was a corporation and you had personally guaranteed the debts of the corporation, then the creditor can come after you personally. If the debt was from the time period before your bankruptcy, you may still be able to discharge it especially if your chapter 7 was a no asset case. You should definately talk to an attorney in your area.See question

If your income is really high, he can be used to add to your household size which in effect will increase your household median income. You then would need to list his contribution in the means test without really getting him involved. Head on beds can be used for the means test.See question
