How to File Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Milwaukee

Free Consultation: Call (888) 782-9423

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy - also sometimes referred to as a personal, liquidation, or straight bankruptcy - is a traditional bankruptcy. Once a Chapter 7 petition is filed, an automatic bankruptcy stay goes into effect. This stops all creditor activity against the debtor and his or her property, and in most cases, all assets are exempt from being sold by the bankruptcy trustee.

What is Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

Once you file for bankruptcy, the automatic stay starts, lasting the entire process. It takes only a few months before a discharge order is entered, eliminating most debts (excepting certain debts such as child support/student loans). Chapter 7 allows you to get a fresh start immediately and you can start rebuilding your credit score.

Should you file for Chapter 7?

Are you losing sleep at night because you are worried about meeting your basic living needs? Are your personal relationships suffering from debt problems?

If these or any of the following are true of you, then it may be a good idea to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy:

  • You cannot save any money for emergency purposes or for your retirement
  • Your credit cards are all maxed out and you cannot use them any longer
  • You borrow from one credit card to make payments to pay off another card
  • You're considering a home equity loan or borrowing from your retirement so you can pay off your creditors
  • You've fallen behind on your mortgage or car loan because of high payments on unsecured debt (such as credit cards, medical bills, or payday loans)
  • You can't make minimum payments on your credit cards, or the minimum monthly payments or interest rates keeps increasing
