Understanding Chapter 7

In order to qualify for Chapter 7, you may need to first pass a means test. If your income is below the state median for your household, you may be immediately eligible to file Chapter 7. If your income is above the median level, Phillip Trueba can help you determine your eligibility and maximize your ability to qualify by capturing all manners of expenses that may be used to rebut the presumption of ineligibility.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy essentially allows debtors to take advantage of a "fresh start" in that there is no debt repayment plan whatsoever, if you qualify. Chapter 7 cases often span only several months and provide the opportunity to discharge personal debts at the conclusion of the case.

In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, certain debts cannot be discharged such as:

  • Fraudulent debts
  • Student loans
  • Certain taxes
  • Alimony
  • Child Support

The law office will help you determine which debts can or cannot be discharged in your bankruptcy case. The majority of Chapter 7 cases involve a debtor with large credit card or other types of unsecured debts and few assets. In most case, Chapter 7 bankruptcy can allow a person to eliminate or “discharge” a majority of their debt, while using state or federal exemptions in order to retain your assets.
