Newsflash: Can my wife buy us house while I’m in chapter 13?

We’ve been married 1 year. I am in chapter 13 starting this month. I surrendered a house I bought in 2009. Our household income is $130k and I make about it 75% of that. My wife’s credit is mid 700s and she has less than 3k in debt. She’s never bought a house. We have about $15k saved and we keep our savings in her account. We can save about $1k a month.I’m hoping she can buy us a house since I can’t and our first kids on the way. I’m hoping we won’t need a full 20% down payment and also wondering if I can contribute to the monthly payment even though my credit/income can’t be used.What are my options?Thanks ladies and gentlemen. 🙂
