Selling the property is one option but the other is you provide your share (i.e. 50%) of the non-exempt equity into your bankruptcy trustee. IF this is done then you can retain the US properties. But as you can see this can be a somewhat confusing issue so I suggest you contact a local trustee to discuss this in more detail.
