Regain Control of Your Finances Through Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 classifies certain property as exempt, meaning it cannot be claimed by the bankruptcy trustee. The trustee will sell any property that is not exempt, and the proceeds will be given to your creditors. Any remaining unsecured debt not paid off by the proceeds is eliminated. Although the concept of Chapter 7 is straightforward, in reality there are many factors that affect the process. These include:

Income-based eligibility: You must qualify for Chapter 7 based on income under the Median Income Test.

Time frame: An uncontested Chapter 7 bankruptcy, on average, lasts around 180 days from the date of filing.

Property you keep: Exempt property may include all of your household furnishings and much of the personal property that you own, depending on your specific circumstances.

Discharged debts: Unsecured debt such as medical debt and credit card debt can be eliminated in bankruptcy.

We can help you understand exactly what property you will be able to keep and what debts will be discharged.
