Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Flint bankruptcy lawyers help get you a fresh start

The goals of the Flint Bankruptcy Law Office of George E. Jacobs & Associates are to get you past your difficulties as soon as possible and to set you on a course for a healthy financial future. Our Flint bankruptcy attorneys can determine if Chapter 7 is the best solution for you and help you through the filing process from start to finish.

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a fresh start for individuals, partnerships and corporations with no hope of repairing their financial situations. It is the most common form of bankruptcy and involves a liquidation of personal assets. Most or all of your assets are sold and the proceeds are distributed to your creditors.

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy helps people who have high unsecured debts, such as:

  • Credit card bills
  • Medical bills
  • Personal loans
  • Older tax debts
  • Subscriptions
  • Memberships
  • Utilities
  • Garnishments

Some of your assets — including your car and home — may be declared exempt, allowing you to keep them.

You must pass a means test to qualify for Chapter 7. This means test is a set of formulas used to determine if you have the ability to pay your outstanding debts. If you are found to be able to pay, you cannot file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
