Frequently Asked Questions About Chapter 7

If you are pursuing debt relief through Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you will need to have your questions answered and should have confidence in your knowledge of the process. Below, we provide answers to a number of frequently asked questions regarding bankruptcy. If your questions have not been answered, feel free to contact us at your earliest convenience!

Are the rumors true that it is now harder to qualify for Chapter 7?
In 2005, the bankruptcy laws were revamped by Congress. One of the changes made the qualifications for Chapter 7 filers to be more rigorous. The new rules have established a standard for determining if a debtor can fund a Chapter 13 repayment plan, rather than having the bankruptcy judge make that decision. If the debtor's income is lower than the median income, the debtor will likely qualify for Chapter 7, but the judge can still require him or her to file under Chapter 13.

If I am current on my mortgage, can I keep my home?
If all of your equity in the home is exempt, you can keep your home in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Exempt equity is the amount of property that you are allowed to keep. Under the homestead exemption, bankruptcy law allows homeowners to keep a limited amount of equity in their home.

What should I bring to my meeting of creditors?
Your trustee should contact you or your lawyer with a list of items to bring to the meeting of creditors. Some of the items will likely include:

  • Current pay check stub
  • Bank statements as of the date of filing
  • Copies of deeds
  • Copies of assets
  • List of pending lawsuits
  • Proof of income
