Our skilled bankruptcy attorneys will carefully assess your financial situation to identify secured or unsecured debts. If the majority of your debt is the result of unpaid child support, criminal restitution, fines, taxes or certain student loans, you might consider other options, such as Chapter 13.
There is no limitation to the amount of debt to be discharged after filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy. For a debtor, there are limitations about what property may be classified as exempt. Your home and automobile equity, basic household furnishings, work-related tools, wedding rings and certain retirement plans may be considered exempt and are therefore protected against repossession.
