A bankruptcy lawyer will likely begin by asking very personal questions concerning your assets, debts and your short and long-term financial goals during this meeting. The answers you provide to these questions can help you and your lawyer decide if filing Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy is right for you.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is usually called “liquidation” because the bankruptcy trustees in Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases may opt to sell any non-exempt property the debtor owns.
In many Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases, the debtor does not own any non-exempt assets, so no property is sold. Unsecured debts may be completely discharged in Chapter 7, making it an attractive bankruptcy option.
If you are filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your first task will be to find out which and how much of your assets may be exempt from liquidation.
If you decide to file Chapter 13 bankruptcy, one of your first priorities will be creating a proposed debt repayment plan.
Delaware bankruptcy laws can be complex and confusing. Many people who consider filing bankruptcy can feel frustrated by all of the details.
