Re: bankrupcy chapter 7

If you file for bankruptcy under Chapter 7, the bankruptcy trustee can attach and sell your property for the benefit of creditors, even if the property is in another country.

It will depend on how much value there is in the property and how difficult it would be for the property to be sold and the proceeds converted to US currency.
