Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy will eliminate all of your unsecured debts.

Other payments that we be resolved include medical bills and lawsuit judgments.
In some special cases, income tax debts may be discharged – if they are over 3 years old and are on a return that was filed on time. Assessments filed against you may be discharged 240 days or more past the filing date.
The Liquidation Process
During the liquidation process of Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your estate, which includes physical property and other equitable interests, will be divided into two separate categories – exempt and non-exempt property. A portion or all of your non-exempt property will be sold and the proceeds of these sales will be used to pay off secured debts. Your exempt property, however, cannot be touched by the court.
It is important for you to understand and be prepared for this process. Gadsden Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyer Dani V. Bone has the experience and knowledge necessary to alleviate your fears, answer your questions, and help you cope with this procedure.
