I Help Good People Solve Their Debt Problems

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy = Erasing Debt!

What Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 7 is the most popular form of bankruptcy filed in California . . . no doubt because it’s so fast and painless when done right.

In a Chapter 7 case, the debtor surrenders all their nonexempt property — if any exists. The trustee sells the property and divides the cash proceeds among the creditors on a pro rata basis. Don’t let that scare you! California has a generous set of property exemptions. Thus, you almost always keep your home, car and all your belongings.

Not Everyone Qualifies For Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Protection

There are certain requirements that you must meet. It comes down to the means test which uses IRS approved monthly expenses. The means test determines whether your income is low enough to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Also, there is also an online credit counseling course you must take.

When we meet we’ll go over your specific financial situation. I’ll be able to determine if you meet the qualifications as set out by the United States Bankruptcy Code. In the event that I can’t help you, I’ll tell you right up front. I won’t waste any more of your precious time or give you false hopes.
