Bankruptcy Service Chester County

The professional legal team at Lipow Law Office specializes in providing assistance in filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy for our clients.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

This process is a “straight bankruptcy” or “liquidation bankruptcy.” It is the most common, making up about two-thirds of all the bankruptcies filed around the country each year. In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceeding, the debtor is seeking a discharge, which is a document mailed to the debtor by the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court toward the end of the case.

The discharge is a document that essentially states that the debtor is no longer legally responsible for repaying his or her creditors. There are a few prices that one pays for the privilege of receiving a Chapter 7 discharge. There are three primary components to every Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceeding—assets, liabilities, and income.
