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.
