Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 is the most widely applied of the various legal processes intended to discharge the debts of applicants. This chapter can use the liquidation of all assets that are not exempted by its provisions. The funds raised by the liquidation are used to pay off outstanding debts.

Exemptions usually include the individual’s home, car, work tools, furniture, etc. Most people who attempt to file under this provision have no non-exempt assets, consequently very few, if any actual liquidations occur.

The process is relatively quick. Normally debts are discharged in a matter of a few months - after which, all unsecured debts are forgiven, including credit card debt, medical bills, most personal loans, court judgments resulting from car accidents, deficiencies of balances due after repossessions of autos, some older tax debts, payday loans, and garnishments. Support payments, most student loans, and many tax debts are not dismissed.

To qualify for Chapter 7 Debt Relief in Savannah and Hinesville GA, applicants must pass the two-step qualifying Bankruptcy Means test. Your attorney can help guide you through the steps and begin the process in a timely manner. Read More on Chapter 7 bankrupt

Chapter 13

While 96% of those applying for Chapter 7 protection qualify, those who do not, usually fail because of higher incomes. They can file under Chapter 13.

There are no liquidation requirements included in this chapter. Instead, individuals are placed on an affordable monthly payment schedule which culminates in a fresh debt-free start. This plan works for those who intend to repay their debts but need to reduce their payments. Read More on Chapter 13 bankruptcy.


If you are facing imminent foreclosure, before the process moves forward, contact The John E. Pytte Law offices. Chapter 7 and 13 offer solutions to your problem. The law firm will advise you as to which best suits your situation.

Often those who have had a temporary financial setback and simply need time to catch up on their bills can use Chapter 13 because it allows them to catch up, without the constant threats and harassment of collectors. After 3-5 years, finances should be normal and the person can exit Chapter 13. Read More on Foreclosure.
