Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Chapter 7 is the “fresh start” bankruptcy causing an individual to be free from most consumer debt. While a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is commonly referred to as liquidation bankruptcy, most individuals will not have to sell any of their possessions. Unlike Chapter 13 bankruptcy , there is no repayment plan. Any arrearages you have on your mortgage or car loan will still remain after you exit a Chapter 7. However, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy will buy you some time in order to negotiate a loan modification with your secured lenders.
Wiping Out Most Debt with Chapter 7
In Chapter 7, the debtor can wipe out all of their credit card debt in a matter of months plus other unsecured debts such as medical debts, personal loans, and deficiency balances for vehicle loans from repossessed vehicles or mortgages from foreclosed homes. You may also be able to wipe out older unpaid income taxes. However, most government owed debt will not be wiped out in bankruptcy, such as recent income taxes, traffic tickets, or court-ordered support payments. You will also not be able to wipe out most student loans except under certain circumstances
Keeping Most of Your Assets in Chapter 7
There are exemptions provided by state and federal law which excludes certain properties from being sold by the trustee, for example, jewelry, professional books and “tools of the trade,” “whole life” insurance contracts, personal household furnishings, goods, clothing, books and a “wild card” of $24,160 (adjusted for inflation on April 1, 2019) which can be added to other categories or used by itself.
