What Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a legal solution that provides individuals and families with a pathway to eliminate their unsecured debts. Unsecured debts typically include credit card debt, medical bills, personal loans, and more. Unlike Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which puts you on a repayment plan, Chapter 7 allows you to discharge these debts entirely, giving you a clean slate to rebuild your financial life.

Chapter 7 is sometimes referred to as “liquidation bankruptcy” because, theoretically, the Bankruptcy Trustee in charge of your case could take your property and sell it to pay off your creditors before discharging any debts. While this is technically true, California has a long and generous set of exemptions that can protect most, if not all, of your property from being sold. By working with a knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney at The Law Office of Charles A. May to skillfully apply the bankruptcy exemptions, we can help you obtain a “no-asset” bankruptcy – where the bankruptcy court eliminates your unsecured debt and you don’t lose any property in the process.
