Yes, the estate can file bankruptcy. However, why? Is there equity in the family property? You may also be able to file a TRO to stop the foreclosure sale to all probate administration of estate assets.

You should contact an attorney knowledgeable in both probate and bankruptcy as soon as possible.

I would be happy to speak with you.
