What Debts Does Chapter 7 Eliminate?
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a way to discharge certain debts. When a debt has been removed, it means that a creditor cannot hold you personally liable for the debt or carry out collections actions against you. It also brings an end to creditor calls and wage garnishment and prevents foreclosure actions.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy eliminates a variety of unsecured debts, including:
- Credit card debt
- Medical bills
- Personal loans
- Lawsuit debts/civil judgments
- Tax debt (in some cases)
Other debts such as criminal fines, child support, alimony, or student loans, cannot be discharged via Chapter 7.
Eligibility for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
To qualify for Chapter 7, your income must be less than the median income in the state of New York. Those who earn more than the median amount must pass the means test. The means test takes into account your income, expenses, and size of your family to determine if you have enough disposable income to pay back your debts. If you do not have enough to repay your debts, you pass the test and qualify.
There are several circumstances that could make a person ineligible to file, including:
- Failure to attend credit counseling
- Previous attempts at defrauding creditors or the bankruptcy court
- Having a debt discharged under Chapter 7 within the past eight years
- Having a debt discharged under Chapter 13 within the past six years
