Can They Take My House Paid In Full?

by lisa
(Houston, tx, us)

I just bought a house and I fully paid for it. I found out I have cancer. I have no insurance and I'm unemployed. I am divorced and my child is on free lunch at school. If I can't pay my medical bills, will they make me sell my house or take it away?

We are so sorry to hear about your cancer, and hope you are able to beat it.

As far as your home goes, TX has a generous homestead exemption which may protect your home from creditors. However, we are not attorneys and we can't give you legal advice. We recommend you talk with a bankruptcy attorney to find out what can happen if you run up medical bills you can't pay. The attorney will tell you what is safe and what may be at risk.
