Understanding Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
There are a number of advantages to filing for bankruptcy. One of the biggest being the end of creditor harassment. Once your petition is filed, every creditor must stop all collection activity, including phone calls, letters, garnishments, repossessions and foreclosure actions. In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, some of your possessions may be sold in order to raise money to repay your creditors. In most cases, though, little if any personal property is lost.
Many people are hesitant to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy because they fear they will lose everything they own. In fact, the law allows you to keep certain critical property to live a normal life. This is referred to as exempt property. Among the property you are allowed to keep, assuming you can repay any arrearages and continue to make payments on them after your bankruptcy, are a home, a car, clothing, household furnishings, tools for work and others.
