Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Under Chapter 7 of the federal bankruptcy code, the person filing wipes out all of their debt in exchange for the liquidation of their assets. A trustee will collect the assets and sell anything that is not exempt to satisfy the debts (See Illinois Asset Exemptions below). However, not everyone is qualified to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Typically, those who qualify for Chapter 7 have compiled unsecured forms of debt and have few assets. Unsecured debt includes things such as credit card debt. Unfortunately, many things cannot be discharged in a Chapter 7 filing such as alimony and child support, fraudulent debt, taxes student loans and more.
