Chapter 7 Basics
There is a common misconception that filing for bankruptcy means you will lose all of your assets. In most cases, you can file for Chapter 7 and still keep your house, car, 401(k), Social Security and other pensions.
The purpose of filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection is to get your unsecured debts discharged. While you are not able to get certain taxes, school loans or marital support obligations discharged, Chapter 7 can help you eliminate a wide range of debt, including:
- Credit card bills
- Medical debt
- Personal loans
- Pay day loans
The Benefit of the Automatic Stay
Filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 provides the benefit of the automatic stay, which legally prevents creditor harassment. The automatic stay protects you from creditors calling, writing or contacting you in order to collect on your debts.
The automatic stay also enables you to achieve debt relief without worrying about creditors taking legal action against you. Creditors are unable to pursue lawsuits and other actions, such as:
- Stop Wage Garnishment
- Stop Repossessions
- Stop Bank Account Attachment
Our legal team is dedicated to helping you achieve debt relief. We can review your means test results to determine the best form of bankruptcy protection for your needs.
