Ok. My little brother is in a tight spot. He's several months behind on his house payment and he lost his job a few months ago. He's facing foreclosure among other things and he was asking me if filing bankruptcy would be a better option. I don't know what to tell him and he has an appointment with an attorney on monday. The house has been on the market for a while now. Any thoughts on this matter? I thought bankruptcy stayed on your record for a long time but I don't know about foreclosure. Thanks for any suggestions or ideas!
