Re: Filing from CA prison
Yes they can come after you. California is a community property state, the good news however is if the house was always in your and your brother's names creditors can only go after your share. If you can prove you lived there long enough you'r equity is exempt as your homestead in bankruptcy law. I suggest you immediately file homestead if you have not already.
