Fresh Start Bankruptcy
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common form of bankruptcy filed. To see if you qualify, you will be asked to take a means test, a budget analysis and an asset analysis. These tests verify how much money was made in the past six months, what your estimated income and expenses will be and how much property you own.
What Can Be Wiped Out?
Once you have been approved for bankruptcy, your Chapter 7 case will wipe out the majority of your unsecured debts. Credit cards, utility bills, medical bills and payday loans are common examples of the unsecured debts that are able to be discharged. While many bills can be settled in this bankruptcy, there are, however, some that cannot.
What Cannot Be Wiped Out?
In general, the debts that are not wiped out in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy are your secure loans. You will have to reaffirm that these loans, including mortgages, car loans, title loans and financed furniture or electronics, are unaffected by your Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
