Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 bankruptcy (also known as liquidation bankruptcy) allows you to discharge your debts if you qualify under the Bankruptcy Means Test.  Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to discharge unsecured debt, including credit cards, medical bills and judgments.  Certain debts such as taxes, student loans, and domestic support obligations are often not discharged in a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.   Be sure to speak with an experienced Bankruptcy Attorney to determine if your debts will be deemed to be eligible for a discharge.

Don’t let the word “liquidation” scare you. In Texas we have very strong exemption laws which allow most clients to keep all their property including: home, cars, retirement accounts, and even tax refunds.

We will review your debts and assets, as well as your income, and help you determine what bankruptcy option is right for you.

Who Should File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

A typical Chapter 7 bankruptcy filer is a person who has large credit card debt along with other unsecured bills on which they are unable to make payments.

Stop creditor collection activity

Discharge a judgment

Stop repossession

Stop home foreclosure

Stop accruing interest

Keep all your property (in most cases)

Achieve financial independence after debt

Eligibility for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy requires that you pass a “means test” showing that based on your current income and expenses, you are unable (do not have the “means”) to pay back your unsecured creditors. Our office is experienced with the “means test” and determining eligibility. Don’t think that the means test automatically disqualifies you from Chapter 7, we’ve had many clients who make over $100,000 a year who are still able to qualify for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.
