What Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to erase some of your debts. Usually, it is an option for people with a limited income, and when a person’s income is too high, they are not allowed to file Chapter 7 and instead must file Chapter 13. When people do meet the qualifications to file, they are given the opportunity to liquidate their debt, completely erasing it, allowing them to continue forward free of the burden that is overwhelming debt.

There are some things to keep in mind before you file. For example, when you successfully file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, many of your possessions will be sold to repay your existing debts. Essentially, the court will forgive you of your debts only after you have done everything you can to repay them, and that includes selling many of your possessions to pay off as much debt as you can. If you would like to keep your possessions, such as your home, cars, jewelry, and other expensive items, you will want to consider filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy. But if you are willing to do whatever it takes to eliminate your debt, Chapter 7 is your best option. Again, here are some things to keep in mind before filing Chapter 7:

  • Many of your possessions will be sold to repay your debts. These possessions include but are not limited to: houses and other properties, cars and other vehicles, jewelry, and other expensive possessions. Only certain possessions can be kept when you file.
  • Your debts will be entirely forgiven. In some cases, there are some exceptions, such as student loan debt, but for the most part, your debt will be entirely forgiven.
  • Your credit score will be negatively impacted. Chapter 7 bankruptcy will stay on your credit report for 10 years, and during that time, it will have a negative impact on them. Over time, however, that impact will decrease. If you dedicate yourself to controlling your finances and building your credit after you file, you can regain everything you lost and more.
  • Only certain people qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. We can help you determine whether or not you will qualify, and if you don’t, we can help you choose the best route to take on your journey to financial stability.
