Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the fastest way to gain relief from your debts and initiate the process of rebuilding your credit. Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 construct two of the main bankruptcy options available to individuals and small businesses that are seeking debt resolution.

Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy eliminates all of your unsecured debts. This includes all debts that are not backed by any kind of physical property, such as a home, car, or other large-ticket item. One of the largest debts that will vanish is credit card debt. Other payments that will be resolved include medical bills and lawsuit judgments.
In some special cases, income tax debts may be emancipated – if they are more than 3 years old and are on a tax return that was filed on time. Assessments filed against you may be expulsed 240 days or more past the filing date.
The Liquidation Process
During the liquidation process of Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your estate, which includes physical property and other equitable interests, will be separated into two different categories – exempt and non-exempt property. A fraction or all of your non-exempt property will be sold and the profits of these sales will be used to pay off secured debts. Your exempt property, conversely, cannot be touched by the court.
It is crucial for you to understand and be ready for this process. We have the expertise necessary to alleviate your concerns, answer your questions, and help you manage this procedure.
