Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Filing in Rancho Cucamonga

At Atlantis Law, the team has been able to assist countless individuals in achieving their financial goals. By retaining the firm's team, you can begin the bankruptcy process and work toward a financially free future. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is also known as liquidation bankruptcy and provides relief to individuals facing extreme debt. In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, all non-exempt assets may be sold to payoff unsecured debts. Unsecured debts can include mortgages, auto loans, credit card debt and medical bills. You may choose to retain some debt, such as auto loans and mortgages, in order to keep your property but choosing to retain this debt is completely up to you, and you may need the advice of your attorney.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is reserved for individuals who are no longer able to make even minimal payments on their balances in order to become debt-free. It is usually reserved for individuals who can meet all the qualifications for bankruptcy in a Chapter 7 means test. When you work with an attorney from Atlantis Law, they will ask you to provide basic information and documentation proving your financial hardships and will require you to take a means test. This test is used to determine your current monthly income that you receive. If your income is below the median for the household size and state that you live in, you may be determined eligible to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. If you do not pass the means test however, you can still file under Chapter 13.

Benefits of Filing for Liquidation Bankruptcy

In a liquidation bankruptcy, all items that may be considered as non-exempt, such as boats and vacation homes, will be sold to pay back det. This form of liquidating assets will give the honest debtor a fresh start on financial freedom. The moment you file, all harassing creditor calls and collection attempts will cease and the foreclosure process will have an immediate hold placed on it. Within four weeks of filing, you and your attorney will attend a meeting of creditors, which is a very informal meeting that helps the creditors approve your bankruptcy. Approximately 60 to 90 days after filing, a discharge order will be received from the court officially eliminating all dischargeable debts named in your bankruptcy petition. After this order is received, you can begin to move forward with your life and rebuild your credit.
