Chapter 7

Bankruptcy Chapter 7 Debt

If you have large amounts of unsecured debt, Chapter 7 bankruptcy can eliminate it entirely, but at a cost that you may not want to pay.  In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, non-exempt property is sold (liquidated) and the proceeds are distributed to the creditors.  In most Chapter 7 cases however, property is exempt so a person can keep their few assets.  A person filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy can have a financial fresh start in as little as four months and creditors can no longer harass you.  

Chapter 7 eligibility typically requires that you earn less than the median income for a family of your size in your state. You must also pass a "means test" which determines if you have enough disposable income to repay at least some of your debts within the next five years.  If it is determined that you do,you may be able to apply for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, rather than Chapter 7.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a legal process and bankruptcy laws require consumers to attend Consumer Credit Counseling Services prior to filing.  Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy because of credit card debt is something you should avoid if at all possible. It will destroy your credit rating, stay on your credit report for 10 years and even after that you will continue to have to disclose your bankruptcy history on credit applications such as mortgages and car loans.  While declaring bankruptcy may seem like a quick fix, the fact is the consequences are serious and long term.
