What Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
Although everyone has heard of bankruptcy, most people know very little about it, except that it sounds risky and dangerous. In reality, bankruptcy is an opportunity for a fresh start, and Chapter 7 bankruptcy is one of the best options for those who are struggling to get back on their feet. Here at Holston & Huntley, we want to clarify exactly what Chapter 7 is so you can make a fully informed financial decision.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a provision of the U.S. bankruptcy code that permits individuals to liquidate assets and discharge (i.e. eliminate) debt. Therefore, this form of debt relief is directed toward the most common consumer debts, including credit card debt, medical bills, personal loans, and more. Once the liquidation process is complete, the court can discharge any remaining unsecured debt. Like all types of bankruptcy, Chapter 7 prohibits your creditors from contacting you about debt and pursuing all collection activities, such as garnishments, repossessions, and foreclosures.
Unfortunately, not everyone will qualify for Chapter 7 protection. We can provide a personalized assessment of your situation to determine whether you will be eligible for Chapter 7 and if it is the best possible solution for your financial crisis.
The Chapter 7 Process
- Meeting key income criteria – Your eligibility is determined by a means test, which calculates your total income after supporting all the members in your family and paying other household expenses.
- Receiving credit counseling – This counseling must come from a certified agency, and you must complete the course before you file. You must also complete a debtor education course before the court can discharge your debt.
- File an application with the bankruptcy court – You must also give a complete list of any liabilities and assets, in addition to other financial documents.
