How Filing for Chapter 7 Can Help You

When filing, it is imperative that you understand what filing can do for you as a consumer debtor. Though many people assume that bankruptcy simply wipes away all forms of debt, this is unfortunately not the case. Certain debts cannot be discharged through Chapter 7, such as debts incurred due to failure to pay child support.

Chapter 7 can discharge other debts, such as the following:

  • Credit card debts
  • Medical bills
  • Personal loans
  • Certain contract or lease obligations
  • Other non-secured debts

Put an End to Your Debts by Filing for Chapter 7

Financial hardship can befall anyone for any amount of reasons. From failed business ventures to medical emergencies, debt can be experienced by anyone from any walk of life. At Alexander Hilton & Associates, our Oklahoma Chapter 7 lawyers strive to provide reasonable solutions that can help you regain control of your finances and help you get a fresh start.

How to Qualify for Chapter 7

In order to qualify, the consumer debtor must first take and pass a "means test." The means test essentially evaluates the individual's financial standing and determines if they have enough disposable income to qualify for Chapter 7. If the debtor has the reasonable financial means to pay off their debt, Chapter 13 may be a better option.

How Does Chapter 7 Work?

First, an automatic stay will be put in place to halt all creditors and collection action. Often referred to as "debt liquidation," a debtor will sell any nonexempt property and use the proceeds from the property to settle any debts with creditors. Once your property has been seized, sold, and distributed, your debts can be discharged and you will no longer have an obligation to your creditors.

This means creditors must stop calling or harassing you.

What Property Can I Keep in Chapter 7?

Although most Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases involve liquidating most of your assets, there are certain things you can keep to help you get back on your feet.

In general, Chapter 7 property exemptions (what you can keep) include:

  • Vehicles up to a certain amount
  • Portion of equity in your home
  • Necessary clothing
  • Necessary furnishings and household goods
  • Jewelry up to a certain amount
  • Public benefits
  • Pensions and qualifying retirement accounts
  • Personal injury damages

If you have questions about property exemptions and what you can keep or liquidate, feel free to contact our attorneys for more information.
