Understanding Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most commonly used method of bankruptcy because it can enable you to seek relief from all of your debt. In order to so, the filer must trade certain assets to make up for the debts, which is why it was given the name liquidation bankruptcy. While you may seek to retain certain possessions, like your home or vehicle, every situation is different. Which assets you liquidate will depend on your financial situation, the debts you owe, and your own personal preferences. One of the biggest advantages to Chapter 7 bankruptcy is that the process is short, sometimes taking as little as 4 months.

The types of debt Chapter 7 can help you relieve may include:

  • Personal loan debt
  • Credit card debt
  • Outstanding medical bills
  • Payday advances

Finding the Right Debt Relief Option for You

In order to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you must pass a means test. The means test evaluates a person’s income in proportion to the average in their state and will determine whether they are able to pay off their debt by any other means. If you demonstrate you cannot pay off your own debt, you “pass” the means test and are eligible to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
