Your Property in Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 bankruptcy eliminates most if not all your debts, but this can involve liquidating a debtor's nonexempt assets in order to pay off creditors. However, under the bankruptcy code, the debtor will be allowed to retain certain basic assets, which are the exempt property.

Below is property that might be exempt in a bankruptcy:

  • Homestead
  • Whole Life Insurance
  • Personal Injury Payment
  • Pensions and Qualified Retirement Plans
  • Certain Personal Items (Clothing, Textbooks, Photos)
  • Motor Vehicle
  • Alimony and Child Support
  • Social Security, Unemployment and Public Assistance
  • Workers' Compensation
  • IL College Savings Pool Accounts

There is only one way to know whether or not filing for bankruptcy is the right choice for you, and that is to discuss your options with a Chicago bankruptcy attorney so you fully understand the benefits and disadvantages of each. If you initiate the Chapter 7 bankruptcy process blindly, you could find yourself in trouble later. At our firm, we fully understand the scope of bankruptcy law and can even dispel some of the common bankruptcy myths that you might have heard.
