Let the expert practitioners at the Law Offices Of Edwin M. Adeson in Glens Falls, NY, help you get a fresh start with a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is defined as a fresh start, or straight bankruptcy. It can be filed every eight years and is the most common type of bankruptcy filed. Once you file for bankruptcy, all collection efforts stop immediately, including bills, collection letters, harassing phone calls, lawsuits, garnishments, and frozen bank accounts.

A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy eliminates or discharges many types of debt, though it does not eliminate them all. Below is a list of the debt that may or may not be eliminated.

Debt Chapter 7 Eliminates or Discharges:

  • Credit Cards
  • Personal Loans
  • Medical Bills
  • Old Utility Bills
  • Magazine Subscriptions
  • All Unsecured Debt
  • Deficiency Balances on Current & Future
  • Repossessions & Foreclosures
  • Rental Arrearage Debt

Debt Chapter 7 Does Not Eliminate or Discharge:

  • IRS & NYS Tax Debt
  • Child Support
  • Maintenance
  • Alimony
  • Criminal Related Debt
  • Educational Debt

Liquidation Process

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is also a liquidation process. This means that certain items that are considered necessities of life are protected or exempt, and the court cannot take them away. You may choose either state or federal exemptions, though federal exemptions are usually better with no house or very little equity in a house. State exemptions are usually better when you have more than $20,000 of equity in a residence.

When you file a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, you can reaffirm certain debts you wish to keep, such as vehicles and real property. If you want to keep those secured items, you need to be current on payments and must continue to make these payments.

“I thought I was never going to be able to ever get credit again. I am a single mom recently divorced. I had way too much credit card debt. I got referred to Mr. Adeson for bankruptcy. I never imagined I would ever have to file bankruptcy in my life. I was so scared. But Mr. Adeson sat down with me and explained the entire process. It was not nearly as bad as I imagined it was going to be. The process to file bankruptcy was fairly easy. I am now debt free. My creditors never contacted me again after fling the bankruptcy. I purchased a vehicle 8 months after filing my bankruptcy at a 3.9% interest rate and only 2 years after filing my bankruptcy I am in the process of purchasing a house and I have been pre-approved for a mortgage at 4.5% interest. I owe it all Mr. Adeson. Anybody who has financial problems out there go see Mr. Adeson. He did a fantastic job and I highly recommend him.”

“I got injured with no medical insurance and had huge medical bills and I also had some credit card debt. I did not know what to do. I thought about contacting one of these internet companies that promise to get you out of debt but heard they were mostly scams. Several people referred me to Ed Adeson. Ed spoke with me on the phone for about 20 minutes. He was so understanding and advised me that bankruptcy was my best option, Ed immediately set up an appointment in person and got my paperwork filed within the week. I am now debt free and I have reestablished my credit in less than 6 months and I was able to get a car loan. I am so thankful that I called Ed and got out of debt. If you need to file bankruptcy definitely call Ed as he is compassionate, efficient and knows exactly what his is doing.”
