    (Discharge of most unsecured debts) Note: If you cannot afford the fee, it can sometimes be waived. Ask you lawyer if that can happen for you.

Could Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Help You?

Are you in debt and considering bankruptcy? Chapter 7 bankruptcy was designed to eliminate unsecured debt.

Unsecured debt is defined as debt not connected to property, like credit card, medical and utility bills. Some personal loans may also qualify as unsecured debt.

Once your debt is discharged through a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing, you will never be responsible for that debt again and creditors are legally prohibited from contacting you.

Because Chapter 7 offers a total discharge of debt, not everyone is allowed to file it. You must qualify through the bankruptcy means test.

The means test examines your income and determines whether there's any way you could repay your debts, interest-free, through a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, or if all means have been exhausted and Chapter 7 is your best option.
