Chapter 7 is commonly referred to as a liquidation bankruptcy. In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your unsecured debts are discharged and you get a fresh financial start. Unsecured debts include credit card debt, medical debt and personal loan debt. You also get some time to deal with foreclosure, repossessions and other issues.

Unlike what you may have heard in the past, you will likely keep most (if not all) of your personal belongings. Other than your creditors, you and your bankruptcy attorney will likely be the only ones aware that you have filed. While a Chapter 7 bankruptcy will temporarily affect your credit, it does not mean that your credit will be ruined, In some instances, bankruptcy can actually help you re-build your credit up higher than what it was before.
