What Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidates/gets rid of your dischargeable debt. Despite the myths, filing for bankruptcy is often a means for individuals to become more financially secure.

If you are thinking about filing bankruptcy, you may fall under the following categories:

  1. Average to low income
  2. A considerable amount of debt
  3. No extensive property

If the above apply to your financial situation, you may qualify for Chapter 7. Eligible income thresholds vary based on median income data established by the Census Bureau. The rules set within the guidelines are fluid. Even if your income is above the median, you may still qualify to file for Chapter 7. That is why it's important to let our attorneys review your circumstances and tell you the truth regarding your next chance at financial freedom.
