There is nothing legally to prevent you from buying a home after you have filed for bankruptcy. However, there will be some logistical difficulties in finding a lender who is willing approve you for a mortgage. Most institutions stipulate at a least they want to see 2 years since the bankruptcy is filed and some efforts made in that time frame to rebuild your credit.
