Filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Rocklin CA
A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is commonly referred to as a “liquidation” bankruptcy. The trustee takes any non-exempt property from the debtor and sells it, and distributes the proceeds to the creditors on a proportionate basis. The court then issues a discharge. It is not uncommon, especially in California for the debtor to not own any non-exempt property, and therefore, the trustee takes nothing.
What is a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
A Chapter 13 bankruptcy proceeding lets you rearrange your financial affairs, repay a portion of your debts and put yourself back on your financial feet. The typical reasons for filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy include saving a house in which you are in arrears, payment of back taxes, alimony or child support. You repay your debts through a Chapter 13 plan. Under a typical plan, you make monthly payments to the bankruptcy trustee, who is appointed by the bankruptcy court, for three to five years. The bankruptcy trustee distributes the money to your creditors

"Thank you for your time and representation in the matter of outstanding fees due to me. Your professionalism is much appreciated."
Will Filing Affect My Credit?
Unfortunately, it will. However, most individuals are able to rebuild their credit within a few years. If you are currently contemplating bankruptcy, then it is likely that your current credit rating has already been affected. A discharge of your current debt may provide the opportunity to rebuild your credit with steady, regular payments.
What Property is Exempt?
Exactly what property is protected depends on the exemption scheme chosen. California has two schedules of exempt property. Determining what property is exempt requires a complete understanding of the laws governing residency and the California exemption laws. You should seek professional advice in dealing with exemption issues.
Should I File For Bankruptcy?
There is never a quick answer to this question. Generally, if you can pay off your debts within three to five years then filing for bankruptcy is not a good idea. If this is not possible, then filing may be a viable solution to eliminate your financial obligations. I can help you determine if filing is the right decision for you.
