I am not a US citizen (just PR) and I have stayed in the US for 14 years. I have been laid off my job for a couple of years and right now planning on filing for bankruptcy since we are having problems paying our medical bills, mortgages and student loans. We don't have any credit cards debits. The only problem I have is that I do have another house in my home country (purchased using my retirement account when I was working in my home country) and some bank accounts under my name which belongs to my kids as they are minor. How does that affect the bankruptcy here in the US? Will they take away my home in my home country as part of the settlement? Please help.
