The Bankruptcy Chapter That Helps You Start A New Chapter

Last updated on June 23, 2022

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a relatively fast process that wipes out all dischargeable debts without a repayment plan. Sometimes, you might lose some property to pay back your creditors. In order to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you must qualify. To qualify, your household income must be below the median Alabama income. To determine if you are eligible to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, it is important to discuss your financial situation with a skilled and experienced bankruptcy attorney. Agricola Law, LLC, has the attorneys with the experience and knowledge you need to get the best solution for your financial problems.

Chapter 7 is the most common form of bankruptcy. It allows individual consumers to discharge their debts after liquidating certain assets. Though there is still a negative stigma surrounding bankruptcy, filing Chapter 7 can help you resolve your financial troubles and move on to a new stage of life.

We offer the effective, cohesive help that you deserve. Based in St. Opelika, we assist clients throughout Alabama with bankruptcy issues, including filing Chapter 7 and filing Chapter 13. No matter the cause of your debt, you can rely on us to help you get back on track.

Which Assets Are Exempt From Liquidation?

Chapter 7 is often known as liquidation bankruptcy. In Chapter 7, consumers must sell or liquidate, certain assets to repay their creditors. Fortunately, many of your assets are exempt from this process, including:

  • Cars and trucks of a certain value
  • Most clothing
  • Most household appliances and décor
  • Jewelry of a certain value
  • Pensions
  • Government benefits

Though you may feel worried about losing a certain piece of property, the immediate end of harassment from debt collectors, the end of foreclosure proceedings, and the eventual discharge of your debts is worth it. We can help you understand which of your assets you will get to keep. Our attorneys can also negotiate with the bankruptcy trustee, advocating for you to keep as many assets as possible.
