Here is some general information provided by the United States Bankruptcy Court:
The Supreme Court made this point about the purpose of the bankruptcy law in a 1934 decision:
“[I]t gives to the honest but unfortunate debtor…a new opportunity in life and a clear field for future effort, unhampered by the pressure and discouragement of preexisting debt.”
Vanderpool Law Firm is here to assist you with both Chapter 7 (liquidation) and Chapter 13 (repayment plan) bankruptcies:
Liquidation, is a court-supervised procedure where the trustee takes over the assets of the debtor’s estate, reduces them to cash, and makes distributions to creditors, subject to exemptions.
Because there is usually little or no nonexempt property in most chapter 7 cases, there may not be an actual liquidation of the debtor’s assets. These cases are called “no-asset cases.”
In most chapter 7 cases, if the debtor is an individual, he or she receives a discharge that releases him or her from personal liability for certain dischargeable debts. The debtor normally receives a discharge just a few months after the petition is filed.
If a debtor’s income is in excess of certain thresholds, the debtor may not be eligible for chapter 7 relief and need to look toward filing for chapter 13.
