Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy or liquidation bankruptcy allows qualifying debtors to discharge the majority of their unsecured debts (i.e. - credit card balances, medical bills, personal loans and certain taxes). A Chapter 7 bankruptcy eliminates unsecured debts while allowing debtors to typically protect all of their property through state law exemptions.

Reaffirming Debts/Keeping Your Car

Debtors with car loans can keep their car even though they have filed for bankruptcy by reaffirming the contract. This means the car loan survives the bankruptcy.

Debts that Are Not Dischargeable

Certain debts like domestic support obligations, most student loans, recent income taxes, malicious personal injury lawsuits and fraudulently incurred debts are not dischargeable.
