What is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy can eliminate unsecured debt and let you keep exempt property, such as your home, car, furniture, or even a boat that has been financed.
Debts that can often be discharged with Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Arkansas include:
Credit Card Debt
Tax Penalties and Unpaid Taxes Over 4 Years Old
One of the reasons that many people turn to Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is that you get to eliminate most of your unsecured debt while holding on to large financed assets, including:
Equity in your home or vehicle
Household appliances, furniture, and other items and tools necessary to perform the duties of your job
Most life insurance policies & retirement accounts
Public assistance, Social Security, disability benefits, veterans’ benefits, and unemployment compensation benefits
How to File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
While income is one factor that is considered when determining a debtor’s qualification for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, other factors are also considered. Please contact us to set up a free consultation to determine whether you qualify to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy relief. If you do qualify, you will need to complete credit counseling and will need to submit proof of your income, debts, and tax returns to the bankruptcy court. If you do not qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Ms. Sullivan will be happy to discuss your options that may include Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
How Does Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Work?
In Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, the debtor who filed for relief is allowed to keep assets up to Arkansas’s exemptions. Any nonexempt assets totaling in excess of Arkansas’s exemption limits are sold to pay off non-exempt debts. The debtor is then granted a discharge of all of their unsecured debt.
