Liquidation and Chapter 7

A Sacramento bankruptcy attorney addresses how liquidation and bankruptcy are related.

Liquidation and Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is the most common form of bankruptcy in the U.S. Filing bankruptcy will stay on your credit report for 10 years from the date of filing and liquidates your assets to pay off your bills, while allowing you to keep your home, car, and items needed for work intact. Current bankruptcy laws requires that you receive credit counseling within 180 days prior to filing. There are four methods that can be used to file for liquidation and Chapter 7 bankruptcy:

• Do-It-Yourself: File the federal bankruptcy forms yourself.
• Use Bankruptcy Software: You enter the information and the software fills out the forms for you, is not always accurate.
• Use of a Non-attorney petition prepare: Usually a paralegal or someone trained to understand bankruptcy laws. They do not guarantee compliance with all bankruptcy laws or insure that you receive the max advantage for exemptions.
• Bankruptcy Attorney: The most commonly used way to file, an attorney can advise you on the proper time to file and ensure all requirements are met.

Whichever form you choose, make sure you assemble all your financial records, as they will be required to complete your liquidation and Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
