Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Overview

Also known as “Fresh Start” bankruptcy, chapter 7 allows a person to eliminate most or all of his debt while being allowed to keep whatever property he may have. Allows unsecured debt such as medical bills, personal loans and most credit card charges to be easily eliminated. In many cases, a person may keep their home or car (secured debt), provided that they continue to make current payments and are up to date on the loan.
