If you have more debt than you can possibly pay off, the bankruptcy system is there to help — and with How to File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, you’ll find the clear and user-friendly information, advice, and step-by-step instructions you’ll need to get through the entire process.
First, the book will help you determine whether you qualify for Chapter 7 — and whether it is the best way to deal with your debts. Then you’ll find out how to:
stop wage garnishments and attachments
cancel as much debt as possible
deal with secured debts
keep the maximum amount of property
keep your home, if possible
ebuild credit after bankruptcy
The 19th edition is revised to include instructions on filling out the new means test forms, changes to state exemption laws (that determine what property bankruptcy filers may keep), and the latest court decisions. Plus, state and federal charts let you quickly find your state’s exemption laws.
Please note: This book does not cover business bankruptcies, farm reorganizations, or individual repayment plans (Chapter 13). For Chapter 13 bankruptcy, see Nolo’s Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.
