How Chapter 7 bankruptcy Works

Chapter 7 bankruptcy, sometimes call a straight bankruptcy is a liquidation proceeding. In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the individual is allowed to keep certain exempt property. Most chapter 7 cases are "no-asset" cases, which means that you don't have nonexempt property for the trustee to sell. Eligibility to file Chapter 7 is determined by the means test instituted with the 2005 amendments to the bankruptcy code.

Filing Chapter 7

The case is begun by filing the official petition, schedules and statement of financial affairs. These forms prompt you to list all of your assets and all of your debts, along with some recent financial history. Not all debtors are eligible for Chapter 7 protection
