What Is Chapter 7?

Individuals and business entities are eligible to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. For instance, individuals may file Chapter 7 to free themselves of debt, or businesses may complete a Chapter 7 bankruptcy to terminate their business. Chapter 7, also referred to as “straight bankruptcy,” does not involve filing a repayment plan, as is the case for Chapter 13

Who Can File Chapter 7?

The first part to determine your eligibility for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, is a process which is referred to as the “means test.” The “means test” is designed to determine whether you can afford to pay back your creditors. Individuals with  high income will not qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. 

Chapter 7 eligibility is also determined by the value of your assets. State law provides certain protections for your home, vehicles, and personal property but sometimes if they are very valuable or have no liens against them, it can cause problems in a Chapter 7 case. 

Lastly, you are ineligible for a Chapter 7 if you have a recent Chapter 7 discharge.

Helpful and very genuine.

Non-Dischargeable Debts

Keep in mind that Chapter 7 bankruptcy may not discharge all debts. Certain debts that cannot be discharged include those related to alimony, child support, fraudulent debts, and student loans, as well as certain back taxes. That being said, some of the common debts that can be discharged in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy include large credit card debts and medical bills.
