Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Not all bankruptcies are alike. There are two main options for people seeking relief from debt: Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Because every bankruptcy case is different, it is important to consult our experienced bankruptcy attorneys to determine which option might be right for you.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is an attractive option for people who have a substantial amount of unsecured debt, including:

  • Credit card debts
  • Medical bills
  • Personal loans
  • Payday loans
  • Past due bills

Another key indication that Chapter 7 might be right for you is if you earn less than the average state income. It’s a viable option for many, as it allows you to pay off debts and discharge much of whatever is left.

Chapter 7 Exemptions

Also, Georgia state law allows Chapter 7 filers to exempt some of their property. Exempt property cannot be liquidated (i.e. seized or sold to satisfy the bankruptcy debt).

These exemptions often include a person’s home, up to a certain value, as well as some personal property. However, the value of the property that you may protect varies based on whether you are filing for bankruptcy individually or filing jointly with your partner.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

By contrast, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is often known as a “reorganization.” This is because Chapter 13 allows you to organize your debt into a manageable, 3-5-year payment plan.

This option is best for people who:

  • Make too much money to qualify for the Chapter 7 process;
  • Want to keep assets that would be liquidated through Chapter 7; or
  • Are able to pay off much of their debt.

The Automatic Stay

No matter which chapter of bankruptcy you file, you will benefit from the automatic stay. The automatic stay prohibits creditors and lenders from trying to collect your debt in any way (e.g. phone calls, letters, repossession, foreclosure, lawsuits, wage garnishment, etc.).

This court order takes effect as soon as you file and lasts for the duration of your case (i.e. 4-6 months for Chapter 7 or 3-5 years for Chapter 13). It serves as a welcome relief for debtors who experience constant collection attempts or face the threat of losing their assets.

Contact Our Atlanta Bankruptcy Lawyers

At Holston & Huntley, our bankruptcy attorneys are familiar with the legal issues that often come up in bankruptcy cases. We are ready to help consumers throughout Georgia address their financial concerns and develop a plan that works for them. It is important not to attempt to file your petition on your own, even if you are familiar with the process. Doing so places you at a higher risk of having your application rejected, losing more assets than you need to, and/or discharging less debt than you could. Our dedicated legal team is happy to sit down with potential clients to discuss their rights and options in detail.

To schedule a free consultation with our knowledgeable bankruptcy attorneys, contact us online or by phone at (404) 620-3337. We take pride in providing comprehensive and personalized legal services to each person who seeks our help.
