About Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
The most straightforward form of bankruptcy is known as Chapter 7. In exchange for the liquidation of your non-exempt assets, it can provide the near total elimination of debt in just a few short months. To qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your monthly income must not exceed the California state median, or your disposable income must fall below a certain level. To determine if you are eligible, you must pass what is known as a “means test” to see if you qualify.
To determine which assets are exempt and which assets are not, the state of California uses two exemption systems. The filer must choose which of the two to use. Generally speaking, System 1 is a better fit for those with substantial home equity, and System 2 makes more sense for those whose wealth lies elsewhere.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Eligibility
In order to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy you must meet the requirements in regards to your income and only individuals are eligible. There is no limit to the amount of debt you need in order to qualify. Chapter 7 is preferred because you are able to disregard your debt without having to make payments. You can qualify even if you have a large amount of debt.
The advantages of a Chapter 7 filing include:
- Freeing yourself from major debts in as little as 3 months
- Halting foreclosure
- Stopping creditor harassment in its tracks
- Keeping your house and car
- Getting a chance to rebuild your credit score
