Chapter 7 Bankruptcy - California Chapter 7 Bankruptcies ("Liquidations"), Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Attorneys, Lawyer
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the liquidation variety of a bankruptcy in which property is sold (or liquidated) to pay off as much of your debt as possible, while leaving you with enough property to start over or have a "second chance." In other words, Chapter 7 of the bankruptcy code provides for the liquidation or sale of a debtor's nonexempt property and the distribution of the proceeds to creditors.

With a Chapter 7 bankruptcy (also known as "liquidations" or "straight bankruptcy"), the debtor will turn over all non-exempt property to the bankruptcy trustee who will convert it to cash so they can distribute to the creditors. It can take several months before the debtor receives a discharge of all dischargeable debts -- some estimates show this can take about 4 months. In most cases, the debtor doesn't have any assets that he/she would lose which will provide for a "fresh start" within a relatively short period of time with a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Notably, one of the main purposes of Bankruptcy Law is to give a person who is over burdened with debt an opportunity to wipe out their debt and have a fresh start.
