Filing under chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common chapter. Individuals who cannot pay regular, monthly payments towards their debts file under this chapter. Businesses that choose to terminate their enterprise choose chapter 7 bankruptcy filing.
Chapter 7 provides its debtor relief regardless of the amount of debt owed or whether the debtor is solvent or insolvent. A chapter 7 trustee is appointed to liquidate the debtor’s assets and distribute the money among the creditors.
Bankruptcy is filed to get a new start and secure the financial future of the debtor. To qualify for chapter 7 bankruptcy, you will have to take a means test. It is very important to have all the knowledge before going ahead with the bankruptcy filing.
