There are scenarios when you are current on your home mortgage and are dealing with other home-related debts where Chapter 7 works well.

You’re current on your home mortgage payment, although you’ve been struggling mightily to keep it that way. You’re thinking very seriously about getting some financial help through bankruptcy. But you absolutely want to keep the home that you’ve fought so hard to keep current.
