Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
The purpose of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is to wipe out your debts, allowing you to get a "Fresh Financial Start".
In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy a trustee will be appointed by the court to liquidate (sell) all assets which do not fall under the bankruptcy exemption guidelines. The net proceeds collected in the liquidation of the non-exempt assets are then distributed to your creditors.
Debts which cannot be included for discharge in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy may include, but not limited to:
Typically an individual who files for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy has a large credit card debt which may include multiple credit cards, various unsecured bills with may be associated with various assets which the payment status may or may not be delinquent.
In many Chapter 7 bankruptcy situations you may be able to keep specific secured debts such as your car, furniture, or home, as long as you reaffirm your commitment to continue paying these debts. In order to keep these items in a successful Chapter 7 bankruptcy you must voluntary sign a "reaffirmation agreement", which stipulates that you cannot file bankruptcy to discharge the debt of these items for 6 years.
The purpose of the "Reaffirmation Agreement" is to protect "reaffirmed" debtors, as well as ensuring an individual does not try to abuse the bankruptcy process.
Your Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyer will advise you of how the reaffirmation process works and how it may affect your future. After this information is thoroughly explained, decisions will have to be made regarding whether or not it is in your best interest to reaffirm certain assets which are allowed to be reaffirmed in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
