Also known as "Straight Bankruptcy." This is the fastest, easiest and least expensive kind of bankruptcy.
When you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can get the relief you need from debts that are overwhelming you. In Chapter 7, an individual or family can usually keep all of their assets and discharge most of their debt. You can generally discharge any unsecured debts such as medical bills, credit card bills, and personal loans.
At its core, Chapter 7 bankruptcy gives hardworking Americans a chance to get out from under a mountain of debt. Whether through job loss, a reduction in hours, divorce, or a medical emergency, a family’s finances can quickly become strained. Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy benefits individuals in many ways, including:
Chapter 7 is one way for you to begin re-establishing your credit by reducing your debt-to-income ratio. With little or no remaining debt, lenders may feel that you will be better able to repay your debts in the future. Many people who file Chapter 7 buy homes within a couple of years and even finance cars after discharge.
