Benefits Of Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

We want all of our Sarasota bankruptcy clients to be fully informed about the potential risks and benefits of Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Chapter 7 may not be for everyone, and we want our clients to be able to make the best choice for their particular situation.

Here are some of the benefits of Chapter 7 bankruptcy:

  • Discharges unsecured debt: If you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, unsecured debts such as credit cards, medical bills, personal loans, car loans, lease deficiencies and some IRS taxes will be discharged. However, certain debts under Chapter 7 are nondischargeable, such as child support, alimony and student loans.
  • Stops wage garnishments and creditor harassment: As soon as you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, creditors are not allowed to contact you. Filing for Chapter 7 also can stop wage garnishments.
  • Helps you get rid of traffic ticket fines: Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to discharge unpaid traffic tickets, lawsuit judgments and other penalties.
  • Protects assets you want to keep: Filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to keep your retirement savings, equity in your primary residence and most personal belongings through bankruptcy exemptions.

If you are considering bankruptcy, but are not eligible for Chapter 7 or you own a vacation home or other assets you would lose by filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you may want to consider Chapter 13 bankruptcy instead.
