March 18th, 2011 by Questions

If a home is in both spouses’ names and only one spouse declares bankruptcy and the home is sold by the trustee as part of the bankruptcy process,is the spouse who has not declared bankruptcy entitled to her portion of the equity if any after the secured debt ( mortgage ) is paid?
