What is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

If you are facing enormous amounts of debt and need to make a new start, bankruptcy is probably your best option. Liquidation bankruptcy is another term for chapter 7 bankruptcy. This method of debt elimination is used by people with lower incomes, and is done by selling off most if not all of your assets, such as your car or house, to rid you of any debt.

What is Exempt Property?

The U.S. Bankruptcy Code allows for the exemption of certain types of assets in bankruptcy, which shields those assets from being seized by your bankruptcy trustee. The State of Missouri has opted out of the federal exemption scheme, which means that Missouri exemptions will be used to protect certain of your assets in most cases.
