What is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows both individuals and couples who cannot meet their financial obligations to be excused from having to repay some or all of their unsecured debt. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing is the simplest, easiest, and fastest way to accomplish this. This type of bankruptcy is a liquidation process where your assets and property that are subject to the process are surrendered, sold, and the proceeds distributed to creditors. However, much of your personal property is exempt from the bankruptcy process under rules set up for this purpose. In many cases, you will not lose most of your personal belongings or assets such as household goods, stocks, clothing, pensions, public benefits, and more. This will be determined at the time your case is analyzed by our attorney.

In exchange for the surrender of assets, your unsecured debt will be discharged by the bankruptcy court, giving you a clean slate. This does not apply to mortgages or vehicle loans, which you will be required to continue paying if you wish to keep them.

The Automatic Stay

Once you initiate the bankruptcy process, the court will issue an automatic stay that stops any further attempts by your creditors to collect payment. After you file, these creditors can only go through the bankruptcy court to collect. This means the end of creditor harassment.

Types of Non-Dischargeable Debt

Some debt cannot be discharged through bankruptcy. These generally include:

  • Taxes
  • Student loans
  • Child support and alimony obligations
  • Homeowner association fees
  • Personal injury or wrongful death judgments
  • Debts accrued through criminal actions

A creditor can also petition the court requesting that the debt you owe it be made non-dischargeable. If the court rules in the creditor’s favor, you will still owe that particular debt. Having a prepared and aggressive attorney on your side in such a case will give you the representation you need to present your side of the story and to fight back against such an action.
