What Is a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy? Will I Lose My Assets?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy, also sometimes known as a “fresh start” bankruptcy, is a way for someone who is overwhelmed by debt to get relief. It is often the quickest, most economical and easiest way to discharge debt.

Through the process of filing for Chapter 7, you fully disclose your assets and liabilities to the bankruptcy court. Your assets, minus certain exemptions, go into the bankruptcy estate, which is then liquidated to pay your debts. The balance of your debt is then discharged. However, many of our clients do not lose any of their assets. By exempting many assets under the applicable laws, we are able to protect many of our clients’ possessions from being seized and sold during the bankruptcy process.

Am I Eligible for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

In 2005, the federal bankruptcy laws changed, narrowing the class of people eligible to file for Chapter 7 by imposing certain income requirements. However, many people are still able to file for bankruptcy under the new laws.

We can walk you through the process and help you understand how to qualify through the Chapter 7 means test. The means test is a formula that determines if you qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy by looking at your income and your expenses.
