Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

What is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a legal step that allows an individual to get rid of unsecured debts, stop creditor harassment, and start his or her financial life anew. Should you file one, you are allowed to keep certain assets that are deemed exempt, such as retirement savings. The bankruptcy trustee, however, will collect all your non-exempt assets and sell these to pay your creditors in compliance with the Bankruptcy Code.

Typically, Chapter 7 bankruptcy is ideal for low-income debtors with minimal or no assets, and who want to eliminate their unsecured debts. Many of these debtors, however, fail to work with a knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney and end up forfeiting assets they could have kept.
