Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Attorneys in 
Woodland Hills

Personal Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 bankruptcy, also known as "personal" or "liquidation" bankruptcy, primarily:

  • Eliminates unsecured debts (credit cards, medical bills, lawsuits, judgments, etc.). Your debts are gone (no repayment is required)!
  • It allows you to keep all your assets, including your home.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy & the "Means Test"

Under the new bankruptcy laws, high-income earners may not qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. However, certain exemptions, credits, and deductions may make you eligible. You need an experienced lawyer to determine if you qualify under the "means test."

How Does Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Work?

Under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the court appoints a trustee to examine your records and determine your net worth. This is the information that we will organize and file on your behalf. Part of the trustee's job is to pay creditors by liquidating any substantial assets not protected under the law.

However, most vital assets are generally protected, including your home and automobiles. An experienced attorney needs to evaluate your assets and make sure they are all protected under the law. Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy will NOT AFFECT your retirement accounts, IRAs, or pension plans.
