Hinkle Law, PLLC in Martinsburg, WV

What is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

In simplest terms, Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common type of bankruptcy that is a legal option to pay off debts. Around one million people file Chapter 7 bankruptcy every year in the United States, and in a lot of cases, it helps them to pay off certain debts within a few months. Depending on whether or not they qualify, certain creditors will be paid by a trustee who gets the money by liquidating the assets of the filer. While some assets are liquidated in bankruptcy claims, most major assets, such as homes and vehicles, can be protected with proper representation.
