A: Yes if the case was dismissed but if your going to file bankruptcy in the future you should consult with a bankruptcy lawyer before doing so
A: NO! If the house was foreclosed on, your Mother no longer owns it. Also, any change to the deed would cause problems. You really need to have an in person consultation (or secure video conference with an experienced NJ mortgage foreclosure defense and bankruptcy attorney. The exact situation can only be determined by a review of all documents.
