A fin de declararse en quiebra bajo el Capítulo 7, usted debe presentar una petición ante su tribunal de quiebras local, junto con varias de las formas que se requieren donde se listen sus ingresos, sus activos, deudas y gastos para vivir. En consecuencia, es necesario proporcionar a su abogado en quiebras una imagen clara y detallada de todos sus asuntos financieros. Si usted tiene principalmente deudas del consumidor, tal como las originadas por las tarjetas de crédito, el tribunal de quiebras requerirá que se someta a una asesoría de crédito con una agencia aprobada, antes de declararse en quiebra. Usted puede declararse en quiebra bajo el Capítulo 7, en forma individual o conjuntamente con su cónyuge.

Why Bankruptcy Is Important?

how much does it cost to file for bankruptcy

When someone needs to file for bankruptcy protection, he or she needs to make one initial decision - the type of bankruptcy that should be filed that's right for the situation.  There are choices for the consumer, namely petitions under either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. 

Below is a brief explanation of how filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy works, but regardless of your financial situation, you need to seek legal help to make sure that your petition proceeds properly. 

Chapter 7 Explained

If a consumer files a Chapter 7 petition, he or she is filing what's known as a 'liquidation bankruptcy.'  This is because in certain respects, the petitioner will be liquidating a majority of the assets held at the time of the filing, but not all of them, as will be explained below.  The steps for filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition are as follows:

  • Note on exemptions - Exemptions are values placed on certain property that cannot be liquidated, as the Bankruptcy Court does not want to leave petitioners completely destitute.  What this means is that you are allowed to keep certain assets up to a certain value including a house, a car, any materials you need for work and even pets, among other things.  Different states have different exemption levels, so you'll need to get those amounts clarified before moving forward.
  • ¿Qué bancarrota es mejor?

    ¿Por qué la quiebra es la mejor opción?

    ¿Que no puede hacer una quiebra por usted?

    Una quiebra no puede resolver todos sus problemas financieros y no es necesariamente la solución correcta para todos los individuos.

    Una quiebra no puede eliminar ciertos derechos de acreedores asegurados o garantizados. Estos acreedores son los que tienen una hipoteca, gravamen o garantía en alguna propiedad como por ejemplo las hipotecas de hogares y los préstamos de automóvil. Una quiebra puede obligar a estos acreedores a obtener pagos a través del proceso de quiebra pero no puede eliminar su obligación de pagarlas pues puede perder la propiedad en garantía si no paga. Una quiebra no le permite retener la propiedad en garantía a menos que continúe con los pagos.

    Una quiebra no le va a relevar de ciertas deudas a las que la ley provee trato especial como por ejemplo pensiones alimenticias, algunas deudas relacionadas al divorcio, muchos de los préstamos de estudio, restitución ordenada por un tribunal, multas en casos criminales y algunas contribuciones. Una quiebra puede proteger codeudores mientras la deuda sea pagada en la quiebra pues de no hacerlo y obtener un relevo de una deuda con codeudor podría éste ser responsable de toda o parte de la deuda. Usted podría luego pagar a su codeudor lo que éste pagó por usted cuando su situación económica lo permita.

    Una quiebra sólo lo protegerá de las deudas que tenga al momento de radicar la quiebra, no obtendrá relevo de las deudas incurridas después de radicar quiebra.

    How to File For Bankruptcy - Chapter 13

    Red Oak Texas

    Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a process whereby a debtor eliminates the majority of unsecured debt by filing a petition and appearing at a meeting of creditors. The entire process takes approximately 120 days and could require as little as one court appearance. The typical time-frame is as follows:

    1) Filing of the petition with the clerk of the U.S. bankruptcy clerk. A notice is sent to all creditors, the debtor, the debtor's attorney and the panel trustee.

    Absent an adversarial complaint, the debtor is well on his way to a fresh start within four to five months at the latest. That means that the debtor can start saving money, can obtain auto financing and can start rebuilding. What may have seemed like an impossible option turns out to be a lifesaver for many individuals. Only an experienced bankruptcy attorney can advise you regarding your rights under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
