Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Clinton Township Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Lawyers

Restoring Financial Control to the People of Macomb, Oakland & St. Clair Counties

Unfortunately, today’s economy has led to many individuals and businesses finding themselves drowning in debt they can’t repay. In such situations, filing for bankruptcy protection may be the answer to what seems like an insurmountable problem. Chapter 7 bankruptcy provides relief through a liquidation process, while Chapters 11 and 13 create a reorganization of your debt. 

The most common form of bankruptcy in the U.S. is the Chapter 7 liquidation filing. It is the simplest and quickest form of bankruptcy, routinely concluded in a matter of months. At Ziulkowski & Associates, our team of Chapter 7 bankruptcy attorneys in Clinton Township can review your individual circumstances to determine if Chapter 7 bankruptcy is right for you. Our goals are to help you make a fresh start through compliance with the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. We can prepare your case for court and advocate on your behalf throughout the proceedings.

Dischargeable & Non-Dischargeable Debt

Once the Chapter 7 process is completed, the balance of what you owe in unsecured debt is discharged through the court. 

These debts can include:

  • Credit card debt
  • Medical/dental bills
  • Past-due utility bills
  • Payday loans

Certain debts are not dischargeable despite being unsecured. This can include child support payments, alimony payments, certain taxes, court penalties and fines, and most student loans. Our attorneys can advise you more on the matter of non-dischargeable debt applicable to your individual circumstances.

Partnerships, Sole Proprietorships, & Corporations

Partnerships, sole proprietorships, and corporations may also file under Chapter 7. However, unlike individuals, these business entities are not eligible to receive a discharge of debt. These business liquidations are conducted similarly to personal consumer bankruptcies with many assets sold so that the proceeds can be divided among creditors. Partnerships and businesses that wish to continue doing business may decide that Chapter 7 is not optimum because, after liquidation and distribution, the business ceases to exist. In these cases, other bankruptcy options or debt solutions can be explored.

You need all the information on how it will apply to your circumstances, how it works, its advantages and disadvantages, and more to make an informed decision.
