Arizona Bankruptcy Laws May Protect Your Home and Property

When you file bankruptcy in Arizona, state bankruptcy laws may allow you to protect some property from your creditors.

In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the most common type of personal bankruptcy, creditors sometimes have the right to take certain property in exchange for debt forgiveness, a process known as liquidation.

However, Arizona bankruptcy laws allow for some property to be exempt from liquidation. Most Chapter 7 filers have very little valuable property, and are allowed to keep most if not all of their property after filing bankruptcy.

A Phoenix bankruptcy attorney can help you understand bankruptcy laws, and how they are designed to protect you and your family.

Phoenix Bankruptcy Chapters

The two main chapters of the U.S. bankruptcy codes used by individuals are Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Each chapter has special benefits, depending on the types of debt you may have.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is typically used to eliminate credit card debt, medical bills, utility bills and other forms of "unsecured" debts that aren't tied to any one item.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is typically used by those who have a home mortgage, automobile loan, or other type of "secured" debt that they wish to keep after filing bankruptcy.

Most Chapter 7 cases involve selling non-exempt assets, if any, to repay creditors. Many Chapter 7 filers receive a debt discharge without surrendering any assets to the bankruptcy court. Most Chapter 13 cases, on the other hand, create an affordable three-to-five year plan to repay creditors.

A local bankruptcy attorney can assess your financial situation and help you determine which chapter of bankruptcy may best help you meet your goals.

In both chapters of personal bankruptcy, a court order called the Automatic Stay goes into effect to protect you from creditors when you successfully file.

The automatic stay is designed to put an immediate end to threatening phone calls, letters and other forms of creditor harassment during your bankruptcy case. It can also halt foreclosure proceedings and debt-related lawsuits, giving you breathing room from creditors and time to focus on your bankruptcy case.
