Filing for bankruptcy can be a way to free yourself from the weight of overwhelming debt and start again. Chapter 7 is one of the most common types of bankruptcy that individuals file for when they feel their debts have grown too out of control.
Why File Chapter 7?
When you file for Chapter 7, your debt is essentially discharged. In most Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases, you can keep all of your property. Property exemptions follow either federal or Texas property code rules, and most people are pleased to learn they can keep most of their assets while discharging their debts by filing for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Our attorney can help dismiss most, if not all, of your debts so you can start rebuilding your credit. Contact us today to begin your journey towards financial freedom.
Who Qualifies for Chapter 7?
Individuals interested in filing for Chapter 7 must pass what is known as a means test. This test will determine whether or not you are eligible for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy by taking things such as your income and family situation into account.
A Chapter 7 bankruptcy case is available for individuals who meet the following requirements:
- No regular income, or not enough income, to repay creditors under a Chapter 13 payment plan
- Full disclosure of all assets and all debts
- No previous Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases discharged within the last 8 years, or Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases discharged in the past 6 years
Can Chapter 7 Resolve All of My Debts?
Although Chapter 7 can erase most all of your debts, such as credit cards, medical bills, lawsuits, debts left over from foreclosure and repossession, etc., it is not a solution for eliminating all types of financial obligations.
Debts such as spousal or child support payments, student loans, and most tax debts, cannot be discharged by filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. However, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case can be filed to deal with these issues.
