Jupiter Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Attorney
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is often referred to as a “straight” bankruptcy or a “liquidation” bankruptcy. It is the type of bankruptcy most people fear because it is associated with losing property. When we mention a Jupiter Chapter 7 case, some people immediately worry they will “lose everything” because they have heard horror stories from friends or family about their bankruptcy experience or they hear about a friend of a friend who lost everything after filing a Jupiter Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
The truth is that most Jupiter Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases, and most Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases filed throughout Florida, are ruled no asset cases by the bankruptcy trustee. A no asset case means you eliminate most, if not all, of your debts AND you keep all of your property. As an experienced Jupiter bankruptcy attorney, we understand how to use bankruptcy exemptions to protect your property while stopping your creditors from taking any further action to collect debts. You get a fresh start without losing any of your property.
