Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Basics

Chapter 7 bankruptcy involves the liquidation of nonexempt assets to pay creditors. After this, all eligible debt will be discharged. That means that the debtor will have no further responsibility to pay that debanytimeme in the future. To qualify, however, a debtor must meet specific financial requirements that apply to his or her income and expenses. A Chicago Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyer can help you determine whether you qualify under Chapter 7 or if a Chapter 13 reorganization is a better option based on your financial situation.
