Chapter 7 bankruptcy is referred to as the “Fresh Start” bankruptcy and wipes the slate clean for individuals. Most people file Chapter 7 because it eliminates obligations of the debts through a Chapter 7 bankruptcy discharge. When an individual files Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, the automatic stay stops collections, foreclosures, wage garnishments, and other legal action.
After filing a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and receiving a discharge, the Individual or married couple filing is no longer obligated to pay the discharged debts. Dischargeable debts in bankruptcy include: credit cards, medical bills, lawsuits, judgments, repossessions, personal loans, bank loans, judgment liens, and more. There are some “non-dischargeable” debts in bankruptcy, meaning, that they will not go away after you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Non-dischargeable debts include: alimony, child support, student loans, and some taxes.
