Areas of Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is also known as liquidation bankruptcy and provides relief to individuals facing extreme debt. In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, all non-exempt assets may be sold to pay off unsecured debts. Unsecured debts can include credit card debts and medical bills. You may choose to retain some debts, such as auto loans and mortgages, in order to keep your property but choosing to retain this debt is completely up to you

Benefits of Chapter 7:

Most of the debts that you owed or incurred BEFORE the filing of your case are eligible to be discharged. The following is a list of common debts that will be discharged in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, absent any extraordinary circumstances:

  • credit cards
  • store cards
  • collection agency accounts
  • medical bills
  • personal loans
  • signatory loans
  • old utility bills
  • old cell phone bills
  • back rent
  • income taxes (if the owed taxes meet certain criteria)
  • repossession deficiencies
  • civil court judgments
  • unemployment overpayments

  • When filing for bankruptcy, some individuals are not eligible to file for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy because they did not meet the criteria set forth in a bankruptcy means test. Others simply do not wish to engage in a liquidation process and sell their assets to repay debts. For people who are still seeking debt relief without having to file for Chapter 7, there is another solution: Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Benefits of Chapter 13:

    • Filing triggers an automatic stay, which stops home foreclosure
    • Automatic stay also stops aggressive collection action
    • Repayment plan is reasonable & flexible and allows you to pay what you can afford
    • Chapter 13 Trustee oversees your case and disperses payments to creditors
    • Allows you to keep the property you are making payments on (home or car, etc.)
