What Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
Bankruptcy is a process where you can eliminate some, or all, of your debts under the protection of the federal bankruptcy court.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy can eliminate most types of unsecured debt. Unsecured debt is a type of debt that is not tied to a specific property, such as a house or a car.
Examples of unsecured debt include:
- Credit cards
- Utility bills
- Department store cards
- Hospital bills
- Cell phone bills
- Medical bills
The primary purpose of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is to have your debts discharged and give you a fresh start. The discharge relieves you from having to pay the debt.
The Means Test
Not everyone qualifies for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. You must meet specific requirements in order to qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy – and you must pass the means test.
The means test compares your monthly income and the amount of your debt to figure out how much you can pay your creditors. If your current monthly income exceeds Florida’s median income, then the “means test” applies a more complicated formula to arrive at your eligibility for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This may require a detailed analysis of your income and expenses. If, after the application of the "means test,” it is determined that you are incapable of paying the debt, then you can proceed with a Chapter 7 bankruptcy where your debts are discharged.
