What Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy? Ask Our Union, Utah, Attorney Questions About Debt Discharge And The Means Test.
Chapter 7 is a potential way to discharge debts you have accumulated. In Chapter 7, a bankruptcy trustee gathers and sells your nonexempt assets and uses the proceeds to pay your creditors. You will be able to keep certain property, such as personal items and household goods, but you may need to sell your home, car and other secured assets to pay your creditors.
Following the sale of assets and payment to creditors, any remaining eligible debts are discharged. Some debts such as child support, student loans and taxes cannot be discharged.
How Can Filing A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Help Me?
In addition to discharging certain debts, Chapter 7 will stop harassing calls from collection agencies and other creditors. Once you file with the courts, an automatic stay is put into place, which bars creditors from reporting to credit agencies or harassing you for debt repayment.
