What Can Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Do for You?
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is also called “debt liquidation” because in a Chapter 7, the bankruptcy trustee uses the debtor’s assets to pay off creditors. This is rather misleading, however, because most people who file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy have no qualifying assets to seize, and therefore stand to lose nothing. Many people who file for Chapter 7 are drowning in credit card debt, payday loans, medical debt and other types of unsecured debt.
Not everyone can qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. In order to file Chapter 7, you must first pass a means test. The means test is a feature of the 2005 changes to the Bankruptcy Code, implemented to prevent people with the ability to pay their debts from getting those debts discharged. For those who do not qualify for Chapter 7, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is an alternative.
