The Process of Filing Chapter 7 in Sacramento

Bankruptcy used to be a four-letter word among financial circles. However, with the average American's debt increasing in recent decades, some debtors are viewing bankruptcy as a tool to escape debt that they'll never be able to pay.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is also called "liquidation bankruptcy." That's because it involves selling off all your assets and using the proceeds to pay back your unsecured debtors. 

Unsecured debts include any type of credit without a material asset backing it. For example, some unsecured debts include:

  • Medical bills
  • Credit card debt
  • Utility bills
  • Payday loans
  • Child support payments

After you declare bankruptcy, you'll be completely debt-free. There are some considerable factors to consider before you file your bankruptcy petition, though. First, your credit will take a significant hit after you file. It'll be difficult for you to open any new lines of credit, from credit cards to a Netflix subscription. Additionally, you'll need to sell the majority of your assets to raise funds to pay off your creditors. That means you'll be left without any possessions. However, with the help of a skilled bankruptcy attorney like the Sacramento lawyers from the Stutz Law Office, P.C., you'll be able to keep a significant number of assets after filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
