      The bankruptcy court charges a $ filing fee for Chapter 7 cases. If you earn more than % of the federal poverty guideline, you have to pay this filing fee. It’s possible to file your case and pay the fee in up to 4 payments if you can’t pay it all at once.   Chapter 11 bankruptcy provides a procedure by which an individual or a business can reorganize its debts while continuing to operate. The vast majority of Chapter 11 cases are filed by businesses. The debtor, often with participation from creditors, creates a plan of reorganization under which to repay part or all of its debts.

      In chapter 7 cases, the court will appoint a trustee to manage the debtor’s bankruptcy estate. The bankruptcy estate includes the non-exempt assets of the debtor. In the chapter 7 liquidation process, the trustee will sell any assets that have value for cash, verify the validity of creditor’s claims, and distribute the sale proceeds to. The lawsuit becomes property of your bankruptcy estate and the Chapter 7 trustee takes control. The trustee can continue the lawsuit, or with court approval, can settle it. This is the case even if the amount you are seeking to recover in the lawsuit would be sufficient to pay all of your creditors in full.

    A Chapter 7 bankruptcy, often referred to as "liquidation", contemplates an orderly, court-supervised procedure by which a trustee takes over the assets of the debtor's estate, reduces them to cash, and makes distributions to creditors, subject to the debtor's right to retain certain exempt property and the rights of secured creditors.   Below we will discuss some of the Chapter 7 bankruptcy rules that you will need to know as you work through the process of filing a bankruptcy case. Again, we want you to know that we are here with you to provide assistance so that you can get rid of your debts even if you cannot afford to hire a bankruptcy lawyer.
