How to File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy (Google eBook)
File bankruptcy and find debt relief with this all-in-one-book!
When you have more debt than you can possibly pay off, the bankruptcy system is there to help -- and with How to File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, you'll find the clear and user-friendly information, advice and forms you need to get through the entire process.
If you're considering bankruptcy, the reliable, up-to-date information in How to File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy will help you successfully complete your bankruptcy claim without breaking the bank.
First, you'll find out how to determine whether you qualify for Chapter 7 -- and whether it's the best way to deal with your debts. Then you'll find out how to:
- stop wage garnishments and attachments
- fill out and file all the forms
- cancel as much debt as possible
- deal with secured debts
- keep the maximum amount of property
- keep your home, if possible
- rebuild credit after bankruptcy
This edition has been revised to reflect changes to state exemption laws, which determine what property you'd get to keep in bankruptcy, and the latest court decisions. You'll also get up-to-date legal forms, including the line-by-line instructions you need to fill them out. Easy-to-use charts make looking up your state's laws a snap.
Please note: This book does not cover business bankruptcies, farm reorganizations or individual repayment plans (Chapter 13). For Chapter 13 bankruptcy, see Nolo's Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: Keep Your Property & Repay Debts Over Time.
