Reduce or Eliminate Debt Under Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to reduce or eliminate your unsecured debt by having it discharged. We can work with you to determine if you qualify for Chapter 7, and if it is the best option. Many people who are eligible for Chapter 7 still choose to file under Chapter 13. Under Chapter 7, you must turn over any non-exempt assets to be liquidated. This does not include property or possessions protected under applicable law, including your home, many of your personal effects, or your main vehicle. The proceeds from this liquidation will be used to offset your discharged debt.
Some examples of unsecured debt you may be able to discharge include:
- Certain types of back taxes
- Medical bills and expenses
- Utility bills
- Credit card debt
Typically this process takes a couple of months, depending on your circumstances.
