Chapter 7

New Hampshire Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Attorneys



As area individuals face the ever-changing economy, with threats of lay-offs, constantly increasing debt and often continuous creditor harassment, it is easy to become completely overwhelmed and think there is no way. However, there is a solution through Bankruptcy. One of the main purposes of Bankruptcy is to Discharge or erase certain debts and to give an honest person a financial "fresh start."


Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is a Liquidation Bankruptcy Chapter. In a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, individuals are able to discharge virtually all debt obligations, such as:

  • Foreclosures on real property, and mortgages you do not want to keep;

  • Repossession deficiencies, and vehicle loans you do not want to keep;

  • Credit cards;

  • Medical bills, including hospital and doctors fees;

  • Loans -Bank loans, credit union loans, finance company loans, personal loans, etc;

  • Back rent, telephone and utility charges in the arrears;

  • Attorneys, legal and Court fees;

  • Overdrafts and deficiency balances on bank accounts;

  • Storage fees, leases and rentals;

  • Record or book clubs;

  • Most business debts;

  • Most debts owed due to a car accident;


In a Bankruptcy, you are able to include debts that you have not paid for 10, 20 30 or more years, and those debts that are only a week old. Under a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy the debtor has no liability for Discharged debts. The Discharge releases individual debtors from personal liability for most debts and prevents creditors from harassment and from taking any collection actions against the debtor. Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is however, subject to some exceptions and therefore the individual debtor should consult an experienced Bankruptcy Attorney at FAMILYLEGAL before filing to discuss all of the various qualifications, time limits, exceptions and filing steps that must be completed.


Unless a party in interest files a Complaint objecting to the Discharge or a files a Motion to Extend the Time to Object, the Bankruptcy court will typically issue a Discharge Order relatively early in the case. Often this can occur within 90 days after the date first set for the Meeting of Creditors.




A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy case usually results in a Discharge of debts. However, this is not absolute, and some types of debts cannot be Discharged. The U.S. Trustee's Office appoints an impartial Trustee whose job it is to administer the case and liquidate the debtor's nonexempt assets. It is important to provide any and all financial records or document that the Trustee requests.


To properly determine if a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is the correct option, you should immediately contact an experienced Bankruptcy Attorney at FAMILYLEGAL. If you are looking for a solution to overwhelming debt, look no further.


By filing a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy you are able to immediately:



  • STOP Harassing collection calls
