Filing for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
When you file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, you are allowed to keep all exempt property, under state and federal law. Non-exempt property may be liquidated to pay off debt owed to creditors. Most Chapter 7 Bankruptcy cases are non-asset cases, and debtors are able to wipe out all dischargeable debt without having to liquidate any assets.
Once Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is filed, creditors have no legal ability to pursue you for collections. You are allowed to keep some of your debt in Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, such as your house mortgage or car loan.
In Chapter 7 Bankruptcy cases, a trustee is appointed by the Bankruptcy Court to administer each case. The trustee will then examine all of your assets and income at the Creditors Hearing. The trustees may seize some non-exempt property to pay off debt. Having an experienced bankruptcy attorney will help guide you through this process and protect your assets.
