We'll be with you every step of the way, handling paperwork and representing you throughout the process.
The goal of Chapter 7 bankruptcy is to have unsecured debts discharged (meaning the debtor is no longer obligated to repay them). This is typically done through "liquidation", although it is common for debtors to get a discharge without having to give up any major assets. This is because debtors are allowed to file exemptions on essential property up to a certain limit, which excludes that property from being liquidated in order to pay off creditors.
