WHAT IS CHAPTER SEVEN?

Chapter 7 is the most common type of bankruptcy filed in the United States. Chapter 7 is also called straight bankruptcy or “liquidation bankruptcy” because you are basically trading some of your assets to pay off your creditors. In a nutshell, the court appoints a trustee to oversee your case. The “trustee” is not really your friend. The trustee’s job is to take as many of your assets as possible, sell them and distribute the money to the creditors that you owe. The trustee doesn’t always take all your property. With a good bankruptcy lawyer representing you, you’ll be able to keep a decent portion of “exempt” property in order to make a “fresh start”.

WE WOULD PREFER YOU FILE CHAPTER 7

This is the type of bankruptcy that most people want, mainly because the entire process is completed faster than other types of bankruptcy, and if done properly you can retain more of your property. However, time is of the essence. For instance, if you’re a homeowner, it’s better to file bankruptcy sooner than later before the value of your house increases. As property values go up, your chances of being eligible for Chapter 7 bankruptcy go down.

In your free initial consultation, We’ll tell you what assets that may or may not be exempt. If it turns out Chapter 7 is too dangerous for you, we’ll be upfront about it and come up with a better solution that meets your needs.
