Independence, Iowa, Credit Card Debt Relief Attorney

Many people refer to Chapter 7 as “liquidation bankruptcy” because your property and assets are evaluated to see if anything can be liquidated in order to pay back some of your debt. The exemptions for personal property generally allow you to keep most or all your property.

Debts that are typically discharged are credit card debt, medical debt and most other forms of consumer debt. It is important to note that child support payments, alimony payments and student loans are not dischargeable through bankruptcy.
