The Chapter 7 Process

Chapter 7 is the easiest and fastest type of bankruptcy. Debtors typically receive a debt discharge (i.e. court-ordered elimination of debt) within six months. Once your debt is discharged, you shouldn’t hear from debt collectors, as they will no longer be allowed to collect what you once owed.

Reach out to our Chapter 7 bankruptcy attorneys today by calling (570) 458-2008 or reach out to our team online.

Here are some of the most important things to understand about Chapter 7 bankruptcy:

Like all forms of bankruptcy, Chapter 7 triggers the automatic stay . This court order keeps all debt collectors at bay for the duration of your case. You will be safe, therefore, from calls, lawsuits, repossession, and more.
To qualify, you will need to pass the means test. The means test compares your monthly income to the median income of your state. Generally, you must make less than the median income to qualify for Chapter 7, but this isn’t always the case.

Chapter 7 is often called a “liquidation bankruptcy” because the trustee can sometimes sell certain property and use the proceeds to repay creditors. However, almost everyone who files a Chapter 7 case with our office keeps everything that they own. We can help you understand and utilize the state and federal exemptions to make sure that you keep the property that you are entitled to.

Most people who file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy do not see any drop in their credit score. This information is surprising to most of our clients, and we will be happy to explain it to you in more detail at your free consultation.

Chapter 7 affects everyone differently, which is why you will need a personalized assessment from one of our attorneys at Sabatini Law Firm, LLC.

Our goal is to help you use the most appropriate debt-relief strategy for your situation, which is why we will only recommend Chapter 7 if we believe it is right for you.
