    I am 82 and my wife is 80. We have a reverse mortgage whereby the total amount of the loan is about what the home is worth. If it becomes necessary for us to file for bankruptcy, will we still be able to live in our home as long as one of us lives there when we continue to pay our taxes, association fees and home insurance? Without any equity in the property, if a creditor filed a lien on the home anyway, would that cause the mortgage to become due and payable then. I don’t think this is going to happen but if it did, I need to know how it will affect our ability to stay in the home. Please advise! Thank you! Frank Hooper
