Filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Fresno
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common bankruptcy used to liquidate a person’s non-exempt assets and property and take the proceeds from the liquidation to repay creditors (many Fresno residents will not have assets to liquidate). If an individual files Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Fresno they can expect their qualifying debts to be discharged usually within 4 months.
Bankruptcy laws have made it more complicated to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Fresno, but a Fresno attorney can review all the new qualifications with the debtor and determine if they should file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Fresno bankruptcy lawyers can also file the bankruptcy petition (list of income, assets, personal debts and exempt debts). A trustee will then be assigned by the bankruptcy court to review the bankruptcy petition, attend the 341 creditors meeting, sell all non-exempt property and give the proceeds from the sale to the creditors. Filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Fresno can help Fresno residents eliminate debt and worry.
Filing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Fresno
Filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Fresno does not immediately discharge the Fresno resident’s debts but instead allows an individual to repay their debt with a reorganized repayment plan. The bankruptcy repayment plan generally allows the debt to be repaid over three to five years. Filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Fresno allows Fresno residents who do not want to sell their assets to keep them and repay their debts with a modified repayment plan. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is only available to Fresno residents who have a steady income and do not have unsecured debts exceeding $269,250 or secured debt exceeding $807,750.
