Popular Information About Chapter 7
Protection from Collection Efforts, Wage Garnishment and Lawsuits
In most cases, your creditors are prohibited from contacting you after filing for bankruptcy.
This process, known as the automatic stay, is designed to put an immediate stop to all creditor actions, including home foreclosure, repossession, wage garnishment and phone calls.
The automatic stay allows you to get breathing room from creditors and debt collectors and allows the court to sort out the details of your case.
Property Exemptions in Chapter 7
Many people believe the myth that if you file bankruptcy, you will be left with nothing. This is not the case.
Each state outlines rules for property that is protected from creditors during bankruptcy, which may include retirement savings, personal savings, home equity, family heirlooms and more.
Many Chapter 7 filers find that the exemption laws in their state protect everything that they own.
