Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 is commonly referred to as a “liquidation” because your nonexempt property will be sold and the proceeds will be distributed to your creditors. Once this process is complete, you will get a totally fresh start—you will not have to worry about payment plans or continuing to be involved with the bankruptcy court.

The typical situation where Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is used is when someone does not have much nonexempt property, and they have a lot of unsecured debt, such as credit card debt.  You can have your debt discharged quickly in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and all of the income or assets you receive after filing bankruptcy are yours to keep.

There are some potential downsides to Chapter 7 bankruptcy. You may lose your property. If you have an asset that is not covered by your California bankruptcy exemptions, you may be forced to sell it and pay the proceeds to your creditors. You may also only file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy if it has been at least 8 years since you previously received a discharge in a Chapter 7 case.

About us

Who is Eligible for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in California?

If your current monthly income is below the California median income, you can file a Chapter 7 case without worrying about the means tests. Higher income filers must pass the means test, which requires you to calculate your allowable expenses and subtract them from you income. If your monthly income, net of the statutorily allowed expenses, is over a certain threshold amount, then it is presumed that a Chapter 7 filing would be abusive. You can overcome this presumption by showing special circumstances that justify additional expenses or adjustments to income. Otherwise, your case will be converted into a Chapter 13 bankruptcy or dismissed.

Even if you are eligible for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, it is not necessarily the best option for your situation. If you want to keep your home and it is not completely covered by your California bankruptcy exemptions, then you may want to consider other options. Talk to a California bankruptcy attorney to learn more about the best type of bankruptcy for your situation.

The LG LAW OFFICE IN ONTARIO can help you decide whether a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the right choice for you. Contact us to request your no-cost consultation with one of our experienced legal advocates.
