What Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

Although everyone has heard of bankruptcy, most people know very little about it, except that it sounds risky and dangerous. In reality, bankruptcy is an opportunity for a fresh start, and Chapter 7 bankruptcy is one of the best options for those who are struggling to get back on their feet. Here at Holston & Huntley, we want to clarify exactly what Chapter 7 is so you can make a fully informed financial decision.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a provision of the U.S. bankruptcy code

that permits individuals to liquidate assets and discharge (i.e. eliminate) debt. Therefore, this form of debt relief is directed toward the most common consumer debts, including credit card debt, medical bills, personal loans, and more. Once the liquidation process is complete, the court can discharge any remaining unsecured debt. Like all types of bankruptcy, Chapter 7 prohibits your creditors from contacting you about debt and pursuing all collection activities, such as garnishments, repossessions, and foreclosures.

Unfortunately, not everyone will qualify for Chapter 7 protection. We can provide a personalized assessment of your situation to determine whether you will be eligible for Chapter 7 and if it is the best possible solution for your financial crisis.

The Chapter 7 Process

One of the greatest benefits of Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the debt discharge, which liberates you from qualifying financial liabilities. However, you must complete several steps before benefiting from this discharge.
The steps to filing for Chapter 7 include:
  • 1
    Meeting key income criteria
    Your eligibility is determined by a means test, which calculates your total income after supporting all the members in your family and paying other household expenses.
  • 2
    Receiving credit counseling
    This counseling must come from a certified agency, and you must complete the course before you file. You must also complete a debtor education course before the court can discharge your debt.
  • 3
    File an application with the bankruptcy court
    You must also give a complete list of any liabilities and assets, in addition to other financial documents.

Getting Personalized Support from our chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyers

Even if you properly complete all the filing steps, you will likely need to handle a range of obstacles and other complexities that will arise during the process. This is why it is critical to retain qualified support from our Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyers in Atlanta.
