Considering Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Queens?
Let our experienced bankruptcy lawyers help you decide what your best bet is for finding financial freedom.
Despite what you may have heard, bankruptcy isn’t as simple as having a court declare your debts invalid and then having poor credit for a few years. There are different types, though the simplest and fastest form of bankruptcy is referred to as Chapter 7.
Sometimes referred to as “straight bankruptcy” or “liquidation,” Chapter 7 is the preferred option for people with few assets and lots of unsecured credit (like credit cards). Typically, Chapter 7 bankruptcy means that debts will be discharged within 4-6 months.
Are you eligible for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
While Chapter 7 may be the quickest option available to you, not everyone is eligible. There are means tests and income requirements, and if you own property, there are specific protections under New York law that may help you keep them.
