How Does Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Work?
Chapter 7 bankruptcy provides the opportunity to cancel most debts and start over with a clean slate. To file, you will describe your property, income, and debts. Once you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, an automatic stay will stop creditors from collecting on your debts temporarily. When you file, the court will determine if you have to give up nonexempt property. With some exceptions, the majority of your debts may be discharged when your bankruptcy case closes.
Whether you are an individual or a business, you may be able to wipe away many of your debts by filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This type of bankruptcy can discharge the following debts:
- Personal income taxes that meet certain requirements
- Repossession and foreclosure debts
- Court judgements
- Credit card debts
- Personal loans
- Business debts
- Payday loans
- Medical bills
- Back rent
Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy may not be right for everyone. For example, child support and student loans cannot be discharged. If you make too much money you may not qualify for Chapter 7; for those who are behind on their home or auto loans, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be a better option.
Credit counseling can determine if you need to file for bankruptcy. Before you file for bankruptcy, you are required to go through credit counseling. You must work with an agency to create a budget and debt management plan. After reviewing your repayment options, the agency may determine that filing for bankruptcy is your only solution. You can still file for bankruptcy even if the agency does not believe that bankruptcy is your only alternative.
