Understanding the Bankruptcy Process

Most individuals who are trying to manage their debts find bankruptcy laws and procedures to be complex, confusing and full of dense technical information. Understanding the basic bankruptcy process can provide you with a solid starting point to learn more about your own financial situation.

While your unique financial situation will determine the trajectory of your bankruptcy process, there are still some general steps and procedures inherent to filing either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, as well as some general rules and guidelines that are established by the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

Regardless of which Chapter of bankruptcy you file under, you can expect the following general steps:

  • Assessment of your financial situation to determine how you qualify
  • Filing of the bankruptcy petition
  • Court-ordered automatic stay (bankruptcy protection)
  • Mandatory meeting with bankruptcy trustee
  • Liquidation / debt discharge or debt restructuring
  • Preparation for the future

    It must be reiterated that the nature of your bankruptcy case will depend on your financial situation and the Chapter of bankruptcy under which you file.

    The Automatic Stay in Bankruptcy

    In the early stages of the bankruptcy process, regardless of the Chapter, the bankruptcy court will issue an automatic stay after you have filed a formal bankruptcy petition. This automatic stay is one of the essential components of the bankruptcy process, and will order all collection activities against you to stop immediately.

    This means the following actions will cease while your bankruptcy is pending:

    • Wage garnishments
    • Phone calls
    • Foreclosure proceedings

    After the automatic stay has been ordered, you will have the much needed time to organize your finances, chart your unique Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 proceedings and prepare for your financial future.

    Additional Information About Bankruptcy

    Bankruptcy FAQ
    At Avery Law, we strive to inform our clients of the bankruptcy laws and the bankruptcy process, this way they can make an informed decision about their finances. In order to make things a little easier on our clients, we have compiled a Bankruptcy FAQ page which answers some common questions regarding bankruptcy.

    Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
    Chapter 7 bankruptcy involves the liquidation of all non-exempt assets to be used to pay creditors and debts. Nearly all chapter 7 cases result in the discharge of some unsecured debts, including credit card debt and medical bills.

    Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
    Chapter 13 bankruptcy is the restructuring of your debts into more manageable payment plans. The duration of plans and their terms depend on a number of factors, but many cases allow individuals to discharge at least some debt after they have completed their plan.

    Bankruptcy Timeline
    While the duration of a bankruptcy will vary from case to case depending on the unique circumstances of your situation, there are certain timelines and procedures you can expect during the bankruptcy process, including both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Bankruptcy Myths
    There is a great deal of misinformation surrounding bankruptcy. When considering these actions, it is essential that you have the facts you need to be successful during your bankruptcy process and in your future.

    Bankruptcy Benefits
    The benefits of bankruptcy are numerous. From the immediate benefits created by the automatic stay to the long-term advantages of a fresh financial start, the bankruptcy benefits should be considered deeply and in relation to your unique situation.

    Foreclosure Defense
    Consumers grappling with debt and financial instability often face foreclosures on their property. Depending on your current situation, bankruptcy can allow you to delay or potentially avoid foreclosure proceedings.

    Creditor Harassment
    There are a number of legislative acts and laws that protect consumers from the harassment, abuse and deceptive acts of creditors and debt collectors. If you believe you have been a victim of debt collection harassment, our firm can use our knowledge of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act to protect your rights.
