Understanding Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Filing for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in federal court gives people relief from having to pay for most of their debts such as credit card bills, medical bills, utilities and other unsecured debts.

Sometimes bankruptcy is the most realistic option to help people take control and recover from unmanageable debt, despite stigmas attached to bankruptcy and lowered credit scores.

Most debts can be eliminated through Chapter 7, and this method still allows you to keep your car, home and other personal property. You will still be responsible to pay back taxes, student loans, judgments and other money owed to the government.

At Everett Family Law, we provide seasoned guidance, counsel and experienced advocacy to protect your rights as a consumer throughout the bankruptcy process.
