Chapter 7 cases are the most common type of personal bankruptcy filings. As experienced bankruptcy attorneys, we are here to answer your questions and guide you through the bankruptcy process. Below are a few questions we commonly get about Chapter 7 cases: Who should file for Chapter 7? Anyone who is struggling to make ends meet should consider this type of filing. A Chapter 7 is especially beneficial if you have significant unsecured debt (such as credit cards and medical bills), you don’t own a lot of non-exempt property, you are being harassed by creditors and you already have a low credit score. How long does a Chapter 7 case take? Every bankruptcy case is different, but most Chapter 7 cases take 4 to 6 months. You may think this is a long time, but it is one of the quickest means for obtaining comprehensive debt relief. What assets can a Chapter 7 debtor keep? Chapter 7 debtors are able to keep the majority (if not all) of their assets in a Chapter 7 filing. It is important to discuss this matter with your debt relief attorney before you file your case.
