Ingram Publishing Services If you’re overwhelmed by debt, the bankruptcy system can help. How to File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy provides the clear information and step-by-step instructions you’ll need to get through the entire process without an attorney.
The book will help you determine whether you qualify for relief and whether filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy will help you solve your debt issues. You’ll also learn how to:
stop wage garnishments and lawsuits
wipe out as much debt as possible
deal with debts you’ve secured with collateral
keep as much property as possible, and
rebuild credit after bankruptcy
The 20th edition is revised to include instructions that will help you complete the new user-friendly bankruptcy forms, changes to state exemption laws (which determine what property bankruptcy filers can keep), and important legal updates.
Please note: This book does not cover business bankruptcies, farm reorganizations, or individual repayment plans (Chapter 13). For Chapter 13 bankruptcy, see Nolo's Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.
