Why Do People File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

Some of the most common reasons people decide to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy include:

  • Unemployment
  • Substantial medical bills
  • Expensive divorce
  • Overextended credit
  • Unexpected expenses

How Does Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Work?

Chapter 7 bankruptcies are often called “liquidation” bankruptcies because that is the primary mechanism used to repay creditors. In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the bankruptcy trustee will gather all of the non-exempt assets and sell them to pay the debt. The trustee can even impose a lien or mortgage on real estate property. Therefore, it is important to realize that a Chapter 7 bankruptcy will likely result in the loss of at least some personal property.

Additionally, a bankruptcy court will look at the debtor’s situation to see what type of debts led them to declare bankruptcy. If most of the debt is from credit card purchases or other types of consumer financing, then the debtor will have to prove that their bankruptcy claim is not abusing the system, otherwise, the case will be dismissed or converted to a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Advantages of Filing for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Although you might lose some of your property, at the end of the day, the purpose of bankruptcy is to help you to start over so you can rebuild your finances. After completing the Chapter 7 process, you will no longer need to worry about existing debts that have been discharged. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy also typically takes less time than a Chapter 13 bankruptcy because it doesn’t feature a payment plan or ongoing payments, which makes the process faster.

There are many steps in the Chapter 7 Bankruptcy process, from filing lists of assets and income to potential appearances before the court. The Bankruptcy Code itself is dense and contains numerous potential pitfalls. But the good news is that the seasoned legal team at Coeur D'Alene Bankruptcy & Tax Relief Center is here to assist with all of your Chapter 7 bankruptcy needs.
