Chapter 7 bankruptcy is often referred to as “straight” bankruptcy. A case filed under this chapter can discharge (wipe out) most unsecured debt and avoid the repayment of remaining balances. Chapter 7 bankruptcy occurs when the debtor individual or corporations’ assets are collected by a court-appointed trustee to be liquidated for the satisfaction of his or her debts. Although liquidation of assets through Chapter 7 bankruptcy may result in a drop in net worth, it also immediately halts creditor collection efforts and is one of the quickest ways to discharge your liabilities.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is usually better for individuals as their debts are usually discharged after liquidation while a corporation’s debts are not. However, not all individuals can qualify for this type of bankruptcy. A full evaluation of your financial situation by our bankruptcy attorney can help you determine the right choice for your needs.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy begins when the debtor petitions the court for relief.
You may qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy if:
- Your gross income is less than the median income of your state
- You do not have enough income to qualify for a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy despite making more than the state median income
- You have not declared bankruptcy within the last 6-8 years
- You did not commit fraud
If you meet these requirements you may qualify for a Chapter 7 liquidation bankruptcy. Upon the filing of a bankruptcy petition, a court order, called the Automatic Stay, will prevent any creditor from contacting you, foreclosing on your home, or repossessing your car, without court approval to do so.
