Worcester Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Lawyer - (508) 928-3038

File for Liquidation Bankruptcy in Massachusetts

Under U.S. federal law, Chapter 7 is a common form of bankruptcy available to individuals and businesses that wipes out various types of debt. It is referred to as both “straight” bankruptcy as well as “liquidation” bankruptcy due to the fact that the filer’s property is liquidated to pay off creditor debt. Chapter 7 is pertinent for those who have accumulated insurmountable debt, especially unsecured debt, such as credit card debt.

How Does Filing for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Work?

First, a "means test" will determine whether your income qualifies for filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Those who don't qualify can file for Chapter 13.

During the bankruptcy process, all of your property and assets that are not exempt are gathered into a bankruptcy estate. These assets are then sold by your bankruptcy trustee in order to pay off your debts. Certain debts cannot be wiped out using a Chapter 7 filing.

Debts which cannot be discharged include:

  • Student loans
  • Child support
  • Alimony
  • Divorce property settlements
  • Property taxes
  • Fines
  • Court-ordered restitution
  • Income taxes for the last three years

In a Chapter 7 filing, certain assets are exempt from liquidation, either through state or federal exemption guidelines. In Massachusetts, state exemptions are much more generous than federal. These include exemptions for your home, vehicle, and more.

Once you file for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your creditors can no longer call or contact you in any way to demand payment.
