Chapter 7 is the number one bankruptcy chapter filed in the United States and is commonly known as liquidation bankruptcy. Through liquidation consumers are able to discharge (get rid of) most debts generally acquired by consumers (i.e. credit cards, medical bills, lawsuits, etc…). However, there are also some debts that are non-dischargeable (i.e, student loans, taxes for the past three years, lawsuits when they are based on fraud, etc…). This is why it is important to have an attorney to guide you through the process.
Chapter 7 was enacted by Congress to protect the people’s right to live free of debt. We all want to have access a credit card, purchase a house or a car, and live the American Dream. Unfortunately, some times the individuals suffer financial downturns which make it difficult to make even the minimum payments and the once manageable financial plan falls into a financial disaster resulting in higher interest rates, higher monthly payments, default in payments, penalties, etc. When this happens, it is time to seek the advice of a professional to evaluate if the filing for Bankruptcy Chapter 7 is a viable alternative.

One of the primary purposes of bankruptcy is to discharge certain debts to allow the debtor a "fresh start." Chapter 7 Bankruptcy allows the debtor to discharge his debt without the need to re-pay any amount if he qualifies. Chapter 7 allows the discharge of debt to individual only. Partnerships or corporations do not qualify for this type of relief. 11 U.S.C. § 727(a)(1). In addition, while a Chapter 7 usually results in a discharge of debts, the right to a discharge is not absolute. Some types of debts are not dischargeable.
