What is Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy, or liquidation bankruptcy, is intended for individuals struggling to make payments on unsecured loans. To satisfy these debts, all non-exempt assets may be sold to make payment to your creditors. With the help of proper counsel, you can even find a middle ground of what property and assets you want to sell and what debts you feel comfortable retaining.

Filing for Chapter 7 can provide:

  • Flexibility in property and asset sales
  • Protection from creditor calls and harassment
  • Protection from foreclosure actions
  • A fresh start towards rebuilding your credit

Qualifying for Chapter 7

To qualify for Chapter 7, an applicant must take the means test. The means test will determine your monthly income and, if that income falls below the median for your household size in the state in which you reside, you may qualify for Chapter 7. If you do not qualify, you may be eligible for Chapter 13, as well. An attorney at Atlantis Law can help you gather the necessary information for the means test and assist you in determining what kind of filing is right for you.

Our legal team has consistently provided thorough and supportive legal counsel for our Chapter 7 clients. From the initial means test to meeting with your creditors with you, we are prepared to stand by your side, ensure your rights are protected, and, most importantly, ensure that you benefit from every possible advantage your filing affords you.
