What Is Liquidation Bankruptcy?

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing is often known as liquidation bankruptcy because it involves selling off property to pay off debts. Thankfully, many items are exempt from this liquidation—which allows households to keep many essential assets even after the court discharges their debts. In those instances, the bankruptcy trustee will not be able to touch most of the debtor’s important possessions.

Unfortunately, not all individuals qualify for a Chapter 7 filing. In order to successfully petition for the dismissal of unsecured loans, a household must earn less than the average annual amount of money within their respective state. This is known as the means test, and it was designed so that wealthy households could not take advantage of Chapter 7 while protecting their high-value assets.

If you are curious about the benefits of the liquidation bankruptcy, ask the skilled legal team at Cutler & Associates by calling (847) 868-2265.
