One of the leading motives for any bankruptcy filing is to eliminate particular debts so that you can enjoy a fresh financial start. To make sure that you are eligible for Chapter 7, and to assure that you file properly and accurately, you'll want to retain the services of an experienced California bankruptcy attorney. Chapter 7 is most typically filed by persons without significant property, income, or assets. Unlike a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy will require no repayment plan and will result in a discharge of most (but perhaps not all) of your debts. Both individuals and married couples may file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
To file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you'll have to prove to the court that you qualify for the debt relief Chapter 7 provides. In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, certain debts will be eligible for discharge and others will be ineligible. Assets such as a 401k or an individual retirement account are usually exempted; your vehicle, home, and personal items are usually also exempted. In California, because so many various applications, forms, rules, and procedures are involved in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing, it is always wisest to retain the services of an experienced Los Angeles, California Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyer when you file for bankruptcy.
