Chapter 7

  • April 2, 2019

Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code allows a trustee to take control of the debtor’s property and to liquidate it. The proceeds from the liquidation are then distributed to creditors.

Individual debtors must satisfy a means test.  The court will look at the debtor’s income and expenses to determine if the individual debtor can file a chapter 7 bankruptcy.
