DEBT RELIEF1. What is Bankruptcy?Bankruptcy is a legal procedure for eliminating current debt which provides a means for debt-burdened people to have a "fresh financial start." In many cases, bankruptcy can legally eliminate one's debts owed to creditors. There are two primary forms of personal bankruptcy, Chapter 7 and Chapter 13.
2. What is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?This is commonly referred to as "straight bankruptcy," and it is the most commonly filed form of bankruptcy. Large credit card debt and other unsecured bills coupled with few assets typify the filer of Chapter 7 bankruptcy. In the vast majority of cases, this type of bankruptcy can completely eliminate most of the filer's debts.
3. Who can file Chapter 7 bankruptcy?The initial requirement is that the debtor reside (or have a domicile, a place of business, or property) in the United States. There is an income threshold. However, you would not be eligible if: (1) You have received a Chapter 7 discharge within the last 8 years; (2) You have completed a Chapter 13 plan within the last 6 years; or (3) You have had a bankruptcy filing dismissed for cause within the past 180 days.4. Can I keep my business?Yes, many individuals are able to keep or maintain their current business or means of self-employment. There is a valuation process that your attorney can discuss with you to determine your qualifications. 5. Will I have to give up any of my property to my creditors?Most filers will have their debts discharged (wiped-out) without giving up any of their property. This is because federal as well as state laws provide exemptions for your exempted property. Exempted property is property such as your home, household goods, cars and personal belongings, which you may keep despite your bankruptcy.Ask Question, Get Your Answer
