Why Bankruptcy Should Be Avoided?

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.

When consumers contemplate the option of bankruptcy generally, the remedy they are specifically referring to is chapter 7 bankruptcy. The effect of the filing is to discharge someone saddled with debt from having to pay debts no longer secured with a valid lien. It also has the added benefit of serving as a court order to creditors (or their collection agencies) to stop hassling you through telephone calls, letters, and personal contact in an effort to get you to pay the debt. But what, in effect, does that mean for you the borrower?

Chapter 7

Filing for chapter 7 bankruptcy does not mean that immediately all of your debts are eliminated in their entirety. Rather, secured debt must be still be dealt with. It does mean, however, that commonly unsecured debts like credit card bills and medical expenses do not have to be paid back. But getting off the hook here does not come without costs. Rather, filing chapter 7 often means the necessary liquidation (selling off) of most of your personal property. While there are limitations to what can be confiscated by creditors, (such as your home under the homestead protection), expect that creditors will sell off most of your valued possessions to pay part of your debts to them. In addition, your credit rating will be devastated by this filing. In filing chapter 7 bankruptcy, you have essentially proclaimed to the world that you are no longer worthy to be trusted with future credit. That plays out practically insofar as it becomes virtually impossible to get a mortgage for a new home, a car loan, a credit card, and even limits very small forms of credit like appliance financing and at times payday loans. Because of the many drawbacks of filing for chapter 7 bankruptcy, many individuals in need of debt relief look for other options.

There are both benefits and costs to whichever bankruptcy approach you decide to take. On the one hand, filing Chapter 7 offers you the freedom to be rid of the heavy debt that is currently hanging over you, while Chapter 13 offers you only the chance to restructure that debt to be more manageable. But on the other hand, filing Chapter 7 also means the liquidation of almost all your valuables as well as the total devastation to your credit rating, whereas filing Chapter 13 allows you to keep many of your possessions while keeping your credit score intact.
