What Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 7 is often referred to as "liquidation bankruptcy" because it involves the sale of assets to pay debts. You must qualify under an income-based calculation called the means test. You should have an attorney on your side for this reason and others. Mistakes or missed deadlines can cause delays and other serious problems. You should have an experienced attorney on your side who understands the complex bankruptcy laws.

When you file for Chapter 7, medical bills, credit card balances, tax liabilities and other debts may be completely eliminated. You can also resolve debt secured by assets such as your home or car. It is important to know that you can exempt or exclude certain property from being sold. This could include your:

  • Home
  • Vehicle
  • Life insurance
  • Retirement accounts
  • Public benefits, such as workers' compensation, veterans benefits or Social Security
  • Jewelry
  • Furniture and other household property
