Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common type of bankruptcy petition filed in the United States.  It is used to liquidate a debtors assets and distribute them to the creditors as payment in full.  Except for obligations exempt from bankruptcy discharge, the debtor is absolved from further payment to the creditors.

Normally the entire process takes just a few months to complete from filing to liquidation to debt-free status.  A trustee is appointed by the court to liquidate the debtor's assets and distribute them to the creditors.  Debtors are allowed to retain some basic assets and may keep some secured assets while retaining the debt applicable to that asset.
