What Is Chapter 7?

Chapter 7 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
  • Hospital bills
  • Utility bills
  • Cell phone bills
  • Department store cards
  • 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. 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, 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.
