How to File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

By Stephen Elias

Find debt relief by filing bankruptcy with this all-in-one-book!

If you have more debt than you can possibly pay off, the bankruptcy system is there to help -- and with How to File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, you'll find the clear and user-friendly information, advice and forms you need to get through the entire process.

First, the book will help you determine whether you qualify for Chapter 7 -- and whether it is the best way to deal with your debts. Then you'll find out how to:

  • stop wage garnishments and attachments
  • cancel as much debt as possible
  • deal with secured debts
  • keep the maximum amount of property
  • keep your home, if possible
  • rebuild credit after bankruptcy

    The 17th edition is revised to include sample forms and figures, changes to state exemption laws (which determine what property bankruptcy filers may keep), and the latest court decisions. Plus, state and federal charts let you quickly find your states' exemption laws. Please note: This book does not cover business bankruptcies, farm reorganizations or individual repayment plans (Chapter 13). For Chapter 13 bankruptcy, see Nolo's Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.
