CHAPTER 7: A Liquidation Bankruptcy
Chapter 7 is designed for debtors in financial difficulty who do not have the ability to pay their existing debts.
The purpose of filing a Chapter 7 is to obtain a discharge of your existing debts. A discharge means you no longer have a legal obligation to pay the debt. The debt in essence is “wiped-out.” The creditor cannot contact you or sue you after you receive your discharge.
