A bankruptcy is designed to deal with unsecured creditors, not secured ones.

The only way a bankruptcy will impact a line of credit that is secured to your home, or any other secured creditor for that matter, is if you return the property prior to bankruptcy
(i.e. have the property forclosed on). Then if the sale proceeds are not sufficient to cover the full balance of this line of credit then this shortfall can be cleared by filing bankruptcy.
