Understanding Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a quick and easy process that allows a person to discharge most, if not all, of his or her unsecured debt. There is a lot of false information out there about bankruptcy. Please know that Chapter 7 bankruptcy is not scary; it is not adversarial - meaning there is no fight; it does not result in your name being published in the newspaper, and it does not destroy your credit. Please contact JPPLAW to learn the truth about Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Examples of unsecured debt that we can wipe out include, but are not limited to:

  • Credit Card Debt
  • Personal Loans
  • Unpaid Utility Bills
  • Medical Expenses
  • Some Back Taxes
  • Wage Garnishments
  • Auto Repossession
  • Foreclosure Deficiency Balances

What are the Benefits of Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

From start to finish, the Chapter 7 bankruptcy process generally is completed in few short months. During this time, non-exempt assets will be liquidated and the proceeds from the liquidation will be used to repay your creditors. However, it is extremely important to know that almost all Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases are “no asset” cases, which means that we list your assets; we exempt your assets, and you keep your assets. Nothing is liquidated and your unsecured debt is wiped out! You will then have the chance to move forward with a clean slate.

Other benefits of filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy include:

  • The automatic stay will protect you from debt collection activity (phone calls, letters, and lawsuits)
  • Most, if not all, of your unsecured debts will be discharged
  • You keep your things
  • There is no limit to the amount of debt you can have
  • You will not be required to follow a debt repayment plan

How to Determine if You Qualify for Chapter 7

A majority of cases are Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases; however, we must determine if you qualify. To qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, we must first look at the “means test.” The means test examines the person’s disposable income and measures his or her income against the median household income in the area we are in. Contact us today to find out if your qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy within ten minutes!
