Your question is best answered by a bankruptcy attorney. Initial consultations are often free, during which time you can determine whether or not it's a viable solution to your financial situation.

Best of luck!

There are lenders like myself that are able to do loans with only ITIN numbers. Although, this type of loan usually requires a decent sized down payment. So if you have a down payment available, then this type of loan may be a good option for you. Either way, the best thing for you to do is to speak with a knowledgeable lender to see if you can get started on financing a new home. If you need additional assistance, feel free to reach out. Good luck!

You may want to ask your new loan officer to run your credit first and then discuss your options, depending on what shows up on it.
