You may still answer the foreclosure complaint after filing a bankruptcy. Depending on the circumstances you may need the consent of the plaintiff's attorney and the court to file an answer out of time. The bankruptcy automatic stay should stop the foreclosure. Your question did not say whether the bankruptcy stay had been lifted or if you received a discharge. You may want to try to save your home by taking advantage of the State Court Foreclosure mediation program. Go to www.njcourtsonline.gov for info on foreclosure mediation.
