Skillfully Guiding You Through The Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Process

Chapter 7 bankruptcy — sometimes known as liquidation bankruptcy or discharge of debt — is a type of bankruptcy that an eligible individual can file and eliminate his or her dischargeable debt allowing the individual a “fresh start.” Dischargeable debt typically includes credit card bills, medical expenses, mortgage loans, etc.

As soon as you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, an “automatic stay” goes into effect that will:

  • Stop creditor phone calls and other harassment
  • Stop home foreclosure
  • Stop repossessions
  • Stop garnishments
  • Stop liens
  • Stop creditor lawsuits


While some people choose to relinquish their property to their creditors in order to rid themselves of their debt through Chapter 7 bankruptcy, it is very common for individuals to keep their home, car and other property through bankruptcy exemptions and creditor agreements.

Most people qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, unless they make more than a median income. We will help you understand if you are eligible for Chapter 7 bankruptcy — according to the Idaho means test — or if Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a better option for you.
